Two years ago, we were a family exploring the idea of our two children traveling internationally to attend a private school. Our search led us to attend a Canadian school reception in Mexico. From the moment we met Janet, she welcomed us graciously and led us and our children through the testing and registration process making it all simple, clear and efficient.
Once in Victoria, her hospitality made us feel welcome personally and extended to making insightful recommendations not only for our children but also to make us comfortable including housing or whatever we required. We always felt we had a friend to go to with our questions.
Highly professional and deeply qualified, one can count on Janet to deliver what she promises.
We are happy with the choice we made for our children to attend school in Canada and regard Janet as a pivotal part of our great northwest adventure.Carlene, Guanajuato
I worked with Janet over the last 7 years, placing hundreds of students in our fine school together. Janet always has the best interest of the students at heart, which is why I can fully endorse her as an educational placement professional. She is very astute, service-oriented and thorough. Janet will only match students to the schools and programs for which they are best suited and she will only work with schools that she knows have a quality program. Janet is a master at genuinely making people feel comfortable in her capable hands. She works tirelessly for the families and schools she represents and I am looking forward to many more years of partnership.Paul Leslie, Director of Admissions, St. Michaels University School
I met Janet when my son Alex was applying to several schools in Canada and the USA and he got accepted to them all. Selecting a school was not very hard because Janet guided us through the process of making the best choice. She knows exactly what the needs of the students and parents are and has the experience to determine which is the better school for the student. Every advice and concern was met. Janet explained every little detail, walked us through all paperwork and made every step as easy as possible.
We trusted Janet in all her advice and suggestions. She came through every time and she did make the difference in our son´s experience abroad. Thank you Janet for this wonderful experience.Helga, Mexico City
Thank you Janet! You patiently answered every question we had, when deciding to send our son to boarding school. Your knowledge and straight-forward approach to all that is called for with the admission process kept us reassured we were making the right choice. We were looking for a school where Julian would thrive, we didn’t expect to also find a life-long friend. Your expertise and friendship means a lot to our whole family.The Wenzel Family, San Jose del Cabo
Janet was our first contact in the admission process for SMUS, and the connection we felt with her was immediate. The trust we had in her came quickly and easily, and was reciprocated in kind. Janet knew the questions we needed answered even before we knew to ask them.
Janet made the whole admissions process a very personal experience. The uniqueness of each of our three children was met with a keen awareness of their individual needs in considering the boarding experience. This awareness extended to my husband and I, as she aided us with the transition of our children from a rural community to Victoria, British Columbia. Janet was an invaluable resource remaining available long after the admissions process was over, to help us navigate both boarding and academic life.Every parent considering a boarding school experience for their child would benefit from the expertise and service of Janet Saul Morrice.Caffaro Family, Alberta, Canada
