Editorial Reviews

Senator Hillary Clinton
The decision about where a child will go to school is one of the most important a family will make. Each child has individual social, practical, and academic needs. This book is a fantastic tool and will make the school search easier for new and lifelong residents of Washington alike.
Richard W. Riley
Georgia Irvin's Guide to Schools is an excellent source of practical information to help parents select the best school setting for each individual child. This book contains specific data about schools in the metropolitan Washington area, but Georgia also provides a wealth of general information and guidance on the whole realm of educational issues that will be enormously helpful to all parents across the country.
Patrick F. Bassett
Georgia Irvin's Guide to Schools reminds parents that there is a 'best school' for every child. It is simply a matter of balancing the child's abilities and style of learning on the one hand, and the programmatic offerings and culture of the school on the other. Choosing a school for a child can be a difficult process, but this book presents the necessary information and explains all of the steps to help families find the right match.
