When we moved here from England, we hired Fiona Whitney to help us in our search for the right school for our two children. Once we had narrowed our choices down to 7 schools with her help she looked over our applications and made sure we got them in on time and met all the other various deadlines concerning interviews and child assessments and since we were out of the country she helped us schedule them all in ten days which was incredibly efficient! She set up meetings with the key people at each school, arranged private tours which she accompanied us on which helped us feel right at home. Once we settled on our top choice school she made sure we got it. We could not have done this without her
We were moving to Los Angeles from New York and consulted with Fiona Whitney. She told us which schools to consider based on what she learned about our family and children. She did all the legwork with appointment setting and making sure we got our applications in on time. She placed our child in the perfect school using her very good relationships with all the school admission heads. We are so happy here, all thanks to Fiona! We highly recommend her.
