What our client’s are saying

“Michael Hayes and his team helped our daughter get the last remaining spot in this year’s admission cycle at a competitive private school with a tough application process. Michael was the only consultant I contacted who had experience in working with the school. His advice during every step of the application process was invaluable. Highly recommended.”

The Ferguson Family

Vancouver, British Columbia

“We came to Michael Hayes with a late and urgent need for the best school placement for our son. He knew the most appropriate schools and had personal contacts at those schools at his fingertips. He moved very quickly and obtained us three interviews rapidly, at a time when schools were full and already in session. Michael’s guidance and intercession were beyond valuable and worth every penny to us.”

John WH

Ottawa, Ontario

“This was an invaluable service to our family. Our children are in excellent schools and comfortably settled into our new home. I highly recommend SchoolAdvice to anyone considering sending their children to private schools in Canada.”

Arif K.

Dubai, UAE

“Our consultant, Michael, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He found the perfect school for our ‘special needs’ daughter.”

Susan A.

Toronto, Ontario

“Moving from Germany to Canada was a big move for our family. Finding the right schools for our four children would have made the whole venture near impossible without the services of SchoolAdvice. We are more than pleased with how they helped us.”

Hans S.

Berlin, Germany

“SchoolAdvice is one of the best consultancies for student development that we ever worked with. The service is flawless and Michael Hayes is a very personable professional. We got more than what we paid for and they went out of their ways to ensure we get the right treatment from the targeted schools. I would recommend the service to any family that want an unbiased consultancy on the right school for their kids.”

Wassim M.

“School Advice’s Team gave our family precious advice on the most suitable school for our kids in Montreal. Highly recommend!”

Moyses F.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

“We are new to the area and needed help deciding on an elementary school. I emailed School Advice on Saturday and by Sunday afternoon Michael had scheduled a phone call with me for the following week. His advice was helpful and his knowledge thorough. When we need to make our next school transition I will definitely contact him again.”
