English at Harvard-Westlake begins with literature, a kind of mirror in which we see ourselves. As we imagine characters amid their challenges, we are invited to understand our own natures and relationships in fresh terms. Via reflective and analytical writing, we strive to offer our clearest discoveries, not so much to win arguments as much as to inspire further inquiry into the critical issues authors help us explore.

Mr. Wilson is the best, most genuine teacher I’ve ever had. He not only teaches English, but also provides life lessons in kindness and caring.
