Greater Boston is one of the most competitive areas for independent day schools. It also provides one of the richest areas of educational opportunity in the country for students from pre-kindergarten through high school. These factors combine to present a set of distinctive opportunities and challenges for families.
For some HSM families, the independent day school educational journey begins as early as pre-kindergarten, generally when the child is age 4 in the fall. From there, families seek our assistance at the natural points of next-school planning for middle or high school, or upon realizing that their child’s current school, whether independent or public, is not the right educational match.
Regardless of when or why families begin thinking about Greater Boston day schools, HSM actively assists in unraveling the mysteries of this complex and competitive landscape. Families are relieved to find that their work with our consultants empowers them to be discriminating and practical consumers of the highly varied and unique missions and programs of area independent day schools.
Our goal is to assist the family in navigating the daunting realities of the Greater Boston independent school world to find an educational environment that is congruent with their values and responsive to the needs of their continuously evolving child or adolescent.
