Endorsement Letters From Satisfied Clients

"This is a fabulous report! It saved me hours of personal research, and definitely gives me a better sense of where I should concentrate my time (and money) for the benefit of my three little ones. The names of persons in charge of the programs is especially helpful as is your insight into the capability of the districts to handle the programs.

Again, thank you very much. This will prove to be helpful to me in many aspects of our move."

Michelle, an Accenture associate

"The expertise, accuracy, insight, and diligence SchoolMatch displayed in carrying out the Educational Effectiveness Audit of the Columbus Public Schools provided the quality of analysis that met our expectations in every respect."
