Parents' Association

Welcome to the Harvard-Westlake Parents' Association

The purpose of the Parents’ Association is to support the goals of the Harvard-Westlake School by organizing activities that enrich the school experience and enhance its community. We work closely with the faculty, staff, administration and Board of Trustees to create events that both benefit the school and foster the inclusive collaboration of its parents. Every parent is automatically a member of the Parents’ Association, and our effectiveness is proportionate to the involvement of every parent. We welcome your active participation in Harvard-Westlake’s vibrant community, and we look forward to working with you.
