“I will miss you, Deborah, next year. I wish you did college consulting!. I think your are the BEST thing since sliced bread was invented. I feel as though we have become such good friends through out all of this. I hope you will stay in my life for ever.
Marie Evnochides (Founder and Former Head of The Fay School, Houston, TX).”
“Andrew is doing great. I couldn't be happier…. He's enjoying it. His grades are solid….this has just been a great for us to have him go to xxxxx School. I am grateful to you every day. You stepped in when we were in a tough spot with a school that was a bad fit. Even though we hadn't worked with you before, you worked tirelessly over three days to find a new school..”
“You have been worth your weight in gold... . So thankful.”
“With the help of Deborah Spagnoletti of Educational Consulting of Houston we were able to receive offers from BOTH of our top two choices in private education in the Houston area. Ms. Spagnoletti helped us to make educated decisions based on facts as well as personal interactions with each of our candidate schools. In the process we learned there are many good schools with stellar reputations, but finding the right school for OUR child became the challenge. With Deborah’s guidance we were able to do just that. We see a bright and shining future ahead for our most precious of commodities, our child.
With the help of Deborah Spagnoletti we were able to make the right choice in private education for our daughter. From learning about and touring each individual school, to the application process, to the day the offer letters came Deborah was there to guide us every step of the way. Additionally, once you’ve made your school selection Deborah continues to monitor your child’s progress to be certain it is truly the right choice. Her caring, attention to detail and through follow up have made our experience one in which we can whole heartedly recommend her expertise in private education..”
“We first found Deborah's name on The Board School Association website. We were looking for both a boarding school (grades 9-12) for an older child and a junior boarding school (grades 6-9) for a younger child. We felt strongly that our younger child be given the opportunity to have the experience of being "oldest" and being able to take advantage of leadership roles that would not have been available to him as soon in a school with older kids as they would in a junior boarding school.
Also, the junior boarding school provided him with the additional nurturing that a younger boarder needs.
Deborah helped us find the schools that would be suitable for each of our children's interests and personalities.
We found the community on each campus to be such that each child was known not only by his teachers, dorm parents or fellow students, but by the entire community.
In many respects a boarding school is like a small town.
It is very difficult for a member of such a community not to be held accountable for their actions - academically or socially.
Such a community facilitates the formation of what I think will be lasting, long-term friendships with classmates and teachers.”
“Deborah Spagnoletti has been a valuable asset in helping my daughter find the perfect boarding school for her to attend.
She took time to understand the learning style and personality of my child in order to make a good match with the different schools.
Her knowledge of the schools is enormous.
We are so grateful to have found some one so professional. Thank-you Deborah!.”
“We decided, just before school ended for the summer break, that a boarding school might be a good option for our son and approached Deborah to assist us with the process.
Most children are placed with their school long before we started the process, but Deborah reassured us that she would find us the appropriate opening at good schools that would provide the academic and social environments we were looking for.
Deborah was true to her word, worked quickly to find schools, assisted with the rushed admissions process, worked with the schools to make sure they were keen to see our son, and scheduled the on site interviews.
Everything went very well and our son starts this September, in a fabulous school that we would never have found without Deborah’s knowledge and expertise.”
“We had a wonderful experience working with Deborah Spagnoletti.
I still don't recall how she was brought to our attention given that we live in Philadelphia…but we feel so lucky that we found her!
In comparing notes with families in the area who used other consultants…no one else seem to be as pleased with their experience as we were!
Our daughter was very comfortable having conversations with Deborah and discussing her feelings and observations throughout the process.
Deborah made our job so easy by scheduling school visits, interviews, SSATs and sending in transcripts.
She also did a wonderful job keeping us on task with deadlines and applications. Most important was her inside knowledge and insights into the culture, academics, athletics and other aspects of a variety of schools.
She could not have been more helpful, supportive or intuitive! Our daughter is thriving and we all share in her happiness and success at her school.
We are eternally grateful to Deborah for a wonderful outcome!”
"Deborah you were amazing help. We are forever grateful we found you. Your guidance and assistance was a large part of the success. I am still trying to grasp this. We are really happy with the outcome."
