Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) dates fill quickly! Register on the ERB's website, and list Harvard-Westlake as a score recipient. Our school code is 052135. All applicants to Harvard-Westlake should take the ISEE after August 1, 2018 and before January 18, 2019.

Please know that test results are just one factor we consider in gaining a clearer academic picture of each applicant. They serve to illuminate the school record and to provide us with a common denominator, given that students apply to Harvard–Westlake from so many different schools and bring with them their own individual qualities. As the President of Educational Testing Service, a group that devises and administers a number of standardized tests, once said, multiple-choice tests can’t "...assess the glint in a student’s eye." We wholeheartedly agree.  

We recommend taking the ISEE only once. However, if you choose to have your child take the ISEE multiple times, we will accept only one score report. 

Most students should not require any special preparation or tutoring for the ISEE.  

Students can take the test at any test site. The ERB will provide test results directly to parents after the test is taken (approximately 7 to 10 days). The cost for the test and information about fee waivers are available on the ERB website.
