Box Hill Private School reviews

Nikita

My younger brother is studying at Box Hill School. We have already addressed SMAPSE to orhanize his trip and now we're planning to do it once more.  

Smapse is exactly one of the best agents - with the highest quality of their work they do not even charge a commission for enrollment: as true partners of foreign schools, they do not work as intermediaries, which saved us a lot of money. At the same time, all necessary procedures were carried out as quickly as possible, without delays, everything was on time: came, chose a school, collected documents, passed exams, etc. Parents liked the approach of SMAPSE specialists when choosing a school: it was clear that they know exact features, carefully listened to our wishes and inquiries and chose the options exactly "for us". It's nice when you see such an individual approach to each client, not put on the flow of selection.
