Our Range of Clients
Smart City Kids, Inc. is an educational advisory service that helps New York City families find the best fit schools for their children from Nursery school – College in public, private, and special education programs. In addition to working with individual clients, Smart City Kids, Inc. provides services on a corporate and institutional level, currently serving as the only educational advisory service for the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, providing relocation services, workshops and admissions advice. For the past 12 years, we have performed similar services for faculty, administrators and staff of New York University.
This season, as in other years, we provided workshops for a range of corporate entities, like Goldman Sachs, Skadden Arps, JP Morgan Chase, and PIMCO, as well as a variety of schools and child care centers around the city, including JCP, York Avenue Preschool, Brooklyn Schoolhouse, Village Preschool Center, TriBeCa Community School, United Nations Child Care Center and Columbia University Family Services. We also participated in panels and workshops for family focused publications like New York Family and parenting groups like Big City Moms and Mocha Moms.
Perhaps our most significant external project this season involved working with the Mandell School in the placement across 110 private schools of the more than 150 families in grades 1 through 9 affected by the ongoing school’s closing. We met on a regular basis with the administration, reviewing records and conducting onsite observations to facilitate our advocacy with ongoing schools on behalf of a wonderful community of students and their parents.
This results report is primarily being issued to those families we were privileged and honored to support full time throughout this admission season. We hope others will benefit from these insights into our company’s process and the overall admissions climate.
