Is It The Right Move?

All Schools ConsideredPreschool, primary, middle or high school…the value of a positive school experience at any age cannot be overstated. As much as good educational outcomes are tangible indicators of future success, however, the opposite also holds true.

Being immersed in a negative scenario – whether due to a personal crisis, ineffective instruction, or an underperforming school – can have a powerful, long-term impact in a student’s academic career and adult life. To put it in perspective, even one stressful or lackluster academic year represents one-twelfth of a child’s education. Each additional year of low achievement compounds the problem, causing a student to lose ground they may never regain.

All Schools ConsideredTrust – between a student, parents, teachers and school administrators – is another essential component of an optimal educational process. How can anyone, but especially an impressionable child or teen, perform at their best in an environment where they feel unsupported or insecure?

“Is a transfer to another school system right for my child?” Although not to be undertaken lightly, transferring schools and a school move may be the most advantageous strategy to help your student get back on track scholastically, emotionally and socially. With wisdom gained as a career educator as well as a parent who has been in your shoes, Elie Gaines brings a caring personal touch to this important transition for your family, guiding you in taking proactive steps to maximize your child’s education and well-being.
