moving to (or within) brooklyn
For families from Brooklyn, Manhattan, Paris, or Sydney who are searching for a good Brooklyn public school zone:
Families contact me at all times of year to discuss their move with schools in mind.
We meet, phone or skype for two hours - $480*
We will talk about the different array of public elementary options available within a variety of districts, the zoned schools, g&t, charter, un-zoned, dual language and middle schools that you would have primary access to. We will discuss what the big trends are and what is likely to be coming down the pike in the next couple of years. I will give you resources for preschool if you need them. If you have a baby, the move needs to come first (and public elementary should be the focus), since there are so many quality preschool options and your early childhood needs to be convenient. You are moving for public elementary (not preschool or Independent School).
For families who need help locating to a good public school zone and a nursery program and/or middle school and/or high school:
The Multi School Move

“The day we spent with Joyce was invaluable. Joyce listened to us and understood exactly where we were coming from. She then put together a programme that was tailored to our concerns and our specific situation. Her flexible approach, experience and preparedness to do that ‘bit extra’ - was brilliant. This is our third different relocation and we can definitely say that the help we received from Joyce was the best relocation assistance we have received in either Europe or the US. We are very excited now about moving to Brooklyn!"
