Middle school P.E. now gender-separated

Seventh and ninth grade physical education classes are now separated by gender in order “to enhance the experience of girls at Harvard-Westlake,” Kimberley Hieatt, head of the middle school physical education department, said.

The eighth grade classes cannot be separated by gender due to a required weight training class that only has one teacher and one location, making it necessary for that class to be co-ed.
