There comes a point in every parent’s life when the question of a good school comes up. “Which school should my child attend? “, is the question most often asked by hassled parents. There are a thousand and one things to be taken care of – right from the admission procedure to writing essays to what should be done and what shouldn’t. This is seen more so in the United States of America, and particularly New York, where running for admissions is almost like jumping from one roller-coaster ride to the next.

And then two women think of this brilliant idea of not only setting up their own consultancy called PEAS (Private Education Advisory Services) but also publishing a handbook to go with it. This handbook is perfect, in the sense it gives you all the information required – documents to be taken care of, how to strategize the challenging process, to what needs to be said during an interview and what doesn’t.

For all the parents who want their children to get admitted to a great Private School in NYC, this handbook is a must read and study more than anything else. I would recommend it to all – parents and would-be-parents as well.
