Breadth of Knowledge
All four Mason Associates consultants travel regularly and extensively to visit the hundreds of boarding schools and therapeutic programs in the US and Canada. We have to -- personnel turnover and institutional changes are frequent in these schools. We also make certain that the student population at each school hasn’t appreciably changed since our last visit.
Other, non-specialist educational consultants may have visited a few schools once upon a long time ago. They aren’t keeping up with the changes that parents want and need to know about to trust the placement for their child. Our parents have confidence that the schools we recommend have undergone our stringent review.
Our consultants also regularly attend conferences, trainings, professional development workshops and other educational opportunities in North America, Europe and the Middle- and Far East. We often are asked to present at these gatherings as well as “staffing” school meetings and health provider gatherings.
We also maintain and endeavor to extend the personal and professional networks we have built up in twenty years of practice. Like most professions, educational consulting at the highest levels is a “small world.” Mason Associates consultants can pick up the phone and call in help from colleagues anywhere in the world.
