Message: American School's public assertion that HWS is a dangerous campus is not justified, and it harms HWS’s reputation by giving the false impression that HWS does not maintain a secure campus or value the safety of its students. To the contrary, HWS works diligently to maintain a safe campus environment and places the highest value on the wellbeing and security of its students.
