Nathaly Blanco will return as the school’s SAT and ACT coordinator after working for two years as an upper school receptionist.
As the SAT and ACT coordinator, Blanco will schedule proctors, assign students to rooms and prepare the tests.
Previously, she had proctored standardized tests and helped with AP exams. When previous SAT and ACT coordinator Chris Gragg retired, he decided that she would be a good fit.
Blanco grew up in North Hollywood and attended the University of California, Berkeley, studying forest management and environmental sociology with a minor in education. She managed a dental practice for five years, but decided that she wanted to move back to education and began working at Harvard-Westlake.
