From a client today:
Hello Emily, just a note to say that we have been absolutely thrilled with <top coed private school>! <Child's name> has made friends with *everyone* and is loving math, this one is hard for me to believe, but she insists it's true. She has been ecstatic just being back in school in a relatively normal way and learning in groups of really nice kids. The school has been life-changing -- I have never seen her so happy. So THANK YOU so much for all of your philosophical and practical guidance through such an incredibly confusing time for our family. We really appreciate all of it. Warmly, <Parent's name>
We think that deciding to work with you through this process has been one of the best decisions we've made as a couple. Thank you so much again for your continued guidance and we will keep you updated on our other interviews.
Last minute private school switchers thank Abacus Guide:
Thank you so much! <Child's name> is loving school so far which really says it all. It is indeed a huge relief to be back in person at a school he looks forward to attending. Thank you so so much for your help. It was a pleasure working with you as well. We could not have done it without your guidance!
I wish you all the very best as well. Thank you isn’t enough but THANK YOU!!!
