The Harvard Westlake School is the best school in the country. No questions asked. It is located in the Holmby Hills area of L.A. The schools website is hw.com. :)

Thank You for bringing up this argument!! First I would like to clarify some things. I go to HW and I like it. I am debating you merely to show that you are wrong.

1. You state that HW is the best shool in the country, however that is an opinoinated statement.
- You never stated what it is best for therefore, you imply that it is the best according to opinion.
- Not everyone thinks that therefore it is not true.
- Newsweek Magazine has researched schools, and HW is not even in on of the top ten. Time Magazine, and many others have also done this research and HW is not the top school.

2. Because you statement is opinionated, it can't be true. Ther is no evidence that all your opinions are correct. Additionally, there is no evidence that Harvard-Westlake is the best at everything. They haven't won every single competition, they don't have the highest average grades, and they have never ben rated as the best school in the US.

3. You have no valid arguments and no evidence therefore I win this debate.

You failed to answer my arguments which shows you have nothing to say.

1. The points I said before have good and specific evidence.

2. Your argument is completely opinionated because
- You state no evidence
- my evidence rules out any of yours
- you have given no reasons why it is the best

Because I have rebutted all your "arguments" and you have failed to rebut mine, I win this debate.

I assume that you have forfeited this debate because you think that I have won. Therefore, because you believe that I have won, I have won.

sagarous, iluvdb8, AK-47debater, you all know each other. I can't believe that you want to argue whether or not you go to HW. Let me just say that as far as I know, you all live in California, and you all go to HW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
