We addressed Smapse when we made a trip to England for my daughter. Of course, at first it was scary, it seemed that all this was complicated and expensive - but we liked the approach of the consultants. They did not immediately begin to impose any services and advertise some schools - they listened to what we want, what we appreciate, what we would like to see in school, what kind of education a girl is planning to receive in the future, and only then began to look at options.
We preferred studying in Great Britain. Smapse helped to collect and prepare all the documents (some were translated directly from them, there is an additional service), even wrote to the consulate and booked us tickets. They were very surprised that all help they receive from them is free, usually in educational agencies it's quite expensive: they explained to us that the company works as a partner and not as an intermediary, therefore, it does not take a commission from customers. This really saves much money.
We chose studying at Haileybury School because in general we are satisfied with the choice and can recommend it. We like that it is a classical boarding school with its own rules and regulations, mandatory form, strict discipline and rules. When you send a child abroad for a long time, you want to be confident in her security. We regularly receive electronic reports on her behavior and academic performance, teachers' recommendations, so that we can be calm. The only thing, the daughter does not particularly like the Sunday Mass in the church (the Catholic school, and visits are mandatory). The main thing is that the Haileybury School has excellent quality of teaching, comfortable conditions, good hostels and teachers.
