Why School Smarts?

Solutions are never easy and customized service is all too often very hard to find. School Smarts was born out of the idea that schools, organizations and communities deserve access to a continuum of services that meet their specific needs, and assist them in their practices in sustainable and innovative ways.  With more than 25-plus years in expertise in school, non-profit and communications experience, School Smarts founders and staff are experienced in leading and implementing change, and assisting teams in the development of plans to maximize impact and sustain potential areas of growth.

School Smarts works not just with systems, but with community at all levels. From parents and students seeking solutions on how to select a school that fits their needs to helping schools find the facilities and communities that match their program offerings, School Smarts facilitates opportunities and results.

School Smarts provides organizational consulting services to schools, school boards, school leaders, districts and school management companies.

Dr. Ticheal JonesSuperintendentAmerican Montessori Academy

“I approached Rajeshri to help me think through different school options for my child in elementary school. The choices we had were all extremely strong, but each school had a different focus, culture, and offered different things. Rajeshri had a lot to offer when it came to educational guidance. She spent the time to understand my child, and what I valued as a parent. Through guided unbiased discussion, she helped me determine the things to think about to make the best decision possible. I would definitely seek her guidance again in the future for my child’s educational needs.”

A Grateful Parent
