All Schools Consulting - Our Families

Our Families

Elie Gaines founded All Schools Consulting because she loves kids. And while children are at the heart of everything we do, we can’t stress enough that this is a family journey. We partner with parents, grandparents, foster parents and other caregivers…whatever your role in a child’s life, All Schools Consulting offers a highly personalized, step-by-step PS-12 school search for adults who are responsible for ensuring the student’s education.

Change may not always be easy, but sometimes change is welcome or even necessary. The factors that lead families to consider moving their children to a different school are as diverse as our families themselves:

All School's Consulting - Understanding Families

“All Schools Consulting is a wonderful and refreshing opportunity to assist parents in making choices about their children’s education and school community. It’s a perfect resource when parents feel lost and alone and are seeking alternatives. And when a child feels lost and alone, it affects the whole family. All Schools Consulting can answer the unanswered questions. It worked for our family.”
