L.A. School Mates is an educational consulting firm based in Los Angeles, California. Our goal is to make sure every family finds the most fitting school for their child, thereby putting him/her on the path to successful personal development and growth.
Finding the right elementary or secondary school can be a daunting challenge for any family. It is also an extremely important task to match a child with a school that fits the child’s individual needs and personality. Our goal as educational consultants is to facilitate each family in finding the most suitable educational environment for their child. As each child has his/her own unique qualities, we want to help parents and students navigate their choices and select schools that will allow each individual student to excel both academically and socially. Once the families have decided where they would like to apply, we will continue to guide them through the application and interview process. Our ongoing visits to schools as well as our first hand knowledge as educators, assures every family that we will find the most fitting school for their child, thereby putting him/her on the path to successful personal development and growth!
L.A. School Scout helps families make informed and thoughtful choices about the schools that will best suit them. Our mission is to promote, encourage and applaud children’s enthusiasm for school and learning; take the mystery and anxiety out of the school finding process for parents; and provide families with comprehensive information on all of their educational choices.
