The operational success of schools relies heavily on creating an organizational structure that works well in a particular educational environment, crafting clear, accurate job descriptions for each role, and hiring the best, most qualified people to carry out those job responsibilities.

The Importance of Professional Photography

The pandemic has presented many unforeseen challenges to independent schools, including how they are able to represent themselves in their communications. As a result of mask mandates, schools have gone more than two years without being able to see and capture in photography the beauty of students’ smiles as they engage in learning on campus. Now that those smiles are visible again, make sure your school is getting the right image.
