"How It all Started"
Moving your child to a new school can be difficult. I learned that the hard way when my husband got transferred by his employer from our home in the suburbs of New York to London.
Even though I was an educator, it didn’t take long for me to realize that when my own kids were at stake, I didn’t have the tools or the objectivity I needed to select the best schools. From the application process to academic expectations to evaluating the “word on the street,” I found myself frustrated and overwhelmed. I successfully enrolled my children in schools that worked out well, but my personal experience led me to found School Choice International to make this process easier for other families.
At first, School Choice worked almost exclusively with many of the most recognizable multi-national corporations helping their valued employees find the right schools for their children when relocating. A few years later, we realized that our team’s expertise and relationships with schools could benefit any family eager to make the right decision for their child. Currently, we help all kinds of families select the right preschool, elementary, middle and high school options.
Today School Choice is made up of more than 140 expert consultants around the world helping families find the school that is the right fit. Our goal? To help your child get admitted to the right school and to reduce the stress you feel during the process. We will interpret a blizzard of test scores and statistics, clue you in to school culture, help you understand differences in curriculum and teaching methods and take the worry out of managing deadlines. We can help you find a school at difficult times like non-entry years - or even mid-year - and can help you navigate a wait list.
School Choice was founded on the premise that every child is different. Our consultants have varied backgrounds so that we are adept at placing academically precocious children and late bloomers, gifted children and children with special needs. We have specialists in private (independent) day schools, boarding schools, parochial and public programs including neighborhood schools, specialized public schools, magnet programs and charter schools.
We can insure that your child–and your family– make a seamless transition to a new educational environment whether it’s around the corner or around the world. School Choice helps hundreds of families choose the right schools for their children every year. I hope we will have an opportunity to help yours.
