Do you feel confident in determining a school’s quality based on a quick phone call or visit, an online search, and discussions with well-meaning friends?
When it comes to finding the right school, your child deserves more than an educated guess. With a home base in the sprawling Phoenix metroplex, All Schools Considered knows Arizona, which boasts a wealth of great public, charter, faith-based and independent private schools. Not surprisingly, there are also institutions that lack vital programs or competencies, or that may be resting on a once-strong reputation.
With more than two decades of experience as a teacher and principal, educational consultant Elie Gaines is keenly aware of important school traits that parents often may not discern – factors that speak to both the personality and the health of a school.
Specializing in discovering the best fit for students in preschool through high school, All Schools Considered thoroughly assesses each target school – including, for example, its mission, approach to educating children, key challenges and areas for growth – to gauge overall performance. Further, ASC evaluates demographics and data, and reviews school-specific offerings, such as signature programs or a special educational focus.
Of course, a successful school search is about so much more than well-run programs and impressive test scores. Finding an amazing school is pointless if it’s not the right fit for you. At ASC, we never lose sight of your family’s specific needs and wants and, above all, your heartfelt desire to champion your child’s success.
