School Search—Finding the right school, working with local education experts. 

If your relocating employee has school-age children, the choice of school is critical to the decision-making process. It will influence the whole family’s perception of their new location. This is why getting places at the right schools is critical to the overall success of an assignment. Some parents may also need the dedicated care and attention of an educational specialist. This person needs to have broad experience of international assignment issues.

Santa Fe Destination Services provides a professional school search programme. Our specialist team will take into account your existing and future education plans. We also cater for specialist education requirements such as special needs schooling.   

School search service includes 

  • Access to local, trained education specialists 
  • “Needs analysis” to determine ages of children, grade, curriculum requirements
  • Explanation of how the school system works, comparative analysis of schools (cost, public vs. private, local vs. international) 
  • Options offered within policy 
  • Personal or virtual tours
  • Coordination of interviews with schools 
  • Support with the enrolment

Benefits 

  • Personal guided tours help assignees feel comfortable and make informed choices 
  • Independent advice from local experts 
  • Local intelligence 

Education consultancy 

Santa Fe understands the importance of educational assistance. We consider schooling, housing and lifestyle simultaneously. Our specialists make use of their personal contacts and links with local and international schools. They will manage education consultancy programmes relating to:

  • International schools 
  • Home country syllabus schools 
  • Schools specialising in language tuition for children with other “mother tongues” 
  • Fee-paying local schools  
  • State-funded local schools  
  • Special needs schools  

We adopt a comprehensive and highly personal approach to meet every family’s unique needs, considering:

  • Each child’s educational background and aspirations 
  • Their age(s) and its significance for current and future placements 
  • Any special needs, whether learning, behavioural or physical 
  • Religious beliefs  
  • Parental educational philosophy (e.g. class size, learning styles and cultural values, preference for single sex or co-educational environment) 
  • Extra-curricular activities 
  • Assignment length 
  • Issues relating to an eventual return to a home system, or onward 3rd country  
  • Budget and your policy 
  • Any other information relevant to the assignee’s family 

Santa Fe and its specialists do not accept commissions from schools. Our focus is fully on finding the best school for each child.
