President Rick Commons Announces New Statement about Harvard-Westlake's Mission
At today’s opening faculty and staff meeting, President Rick Commons unveiled Harvard-Westlake's new statement about the school's mission, which was approved by the school’s Board of Trustees over the summer.
Harvard-Westlake strives to be a diverse and inclusive community united by the joyful pursuit of educational excellence, living and learning with integrity, and purpose beyond ourselves.
Drafted by a small committee led by Mr. Commons, the new statement is briefer than the previous version (26 words as opposed to 94) yet still emphasizes the values that have defined Harvard-Westlake throughout its existence.
Mr. Commons will be speaking about the new statement with students on September 2 at Opening Convocation. He will be speaking to parents at the Parents’ Association General Meeting on September 17.
