After eight incredible years in India, we were planning to return to Silicon Valley in northern California. Schooling for our two daughters (6th grade and 9th grade) was our primary area of concern and we had a list of questions: How should we consider options? What are the trade-offs between public and private schools? What are the admissions and application processes? We are very grateful to Kavita, Kim, Namita and the whole team at The Red Pen for being such great partners in helping us navigate this crucial part of our journey. Both of our daughters were offered admission to The Harker School, the #2 ranked K-12 school in the US, and their #1 choice amongst the shortlist; we said “yes” in a heartbeat.
