Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) dates fill quickly! Register on the ERB website,, and list Harvard-Westlake as a score recipient. Our school code is 052135. All applicants to Harvard-Westlake for the fall of 2020 must submit a score report from an ISEE test taken after August 1, 2019, and before January 17, 2020.

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. 

We recommend taking the ISEE only once. Per our Admission policy, we will accept and review only one score report as part of the application. If the ISEE has been taken more than once, please be in contact with our office to share which test date report you would like the committee to consider. If we do not hear from you by the application deadline, we will evaluate the score report with the test date closest to our application deadline. 

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/guardians after the test is taken. The cost for the test and information about fee waivers are available on the ERB website.
