Who knew there is so much to know about NYC's education choices and systems. The sheer thought of navigating through it all was very overwhelming and the more people you speak with, the more information you receive. Not all of it always correct. I Knew I needed something more- a professional partner to help plan my son's education plan. I came across Evolved's platform.  I found the tutorials and resources included to be of great value. I was also able to consult with the team. I finally felt at ease and well informed. I would highly recommend this platform to any parent wishing to learn about NYC Schools.

I'm a NYC parent who knows Mary and her team through my work. We were looking for kindergarten placement for our child and found the Evolved Education Teaching School's NYC Schools Platform to cover important information to learn about the admissions process. We recommend this course to parents who are looking for information about the NYC school system, especially as it pertains to the more nuanced details you might overlook. This course not only shows you what to look for but also delivers where to find the information and how to decipher what everything means. It helped us tremendously in determining our plans. We used her special education resources as well, taking advantage of her 1-1 consultations to explore our child's needs and develop an educational plan. We are so impressed by Mary and Evolved Education- her breadth of knowledge is vast, and the recommendations are genuine and tailored to fit your individual needs. The service is top-notch, and time saved is truly invaluable. - Jamie H. 

The CPS course was incredible. I have learned so much about how to communicate with my child and all on my own time. When I was done watching the course, I made my husband watch it too, and now we are both on the same page about where we want our family communication to go. We are so grateful to Becky for making this course and for Evolved for making it accessible whenever works for us.   - Min J.
