Pretty much everyone has a funny story about asking for directions in unfamiliar surroundings. 

And, most of us have probably experienced something similar to this when we’ve asked for help while navigating a small town albeit prior to everyone being equipped with GPS:

“I’m trying to find 1313 Regional Road. Can you help?”

“Why sure, that’s simple. For starters you gotta turn around and head back in the direction you came from. When you get to the crossroads near the big sugar maple you’re gonna want to take a left. Follow that along until the cornfield runs out and you see a big patch of soybeans. That’s Walter’s place.”

“So that’s 1313 Regional Road?”

“Oh heck no. We’re just getting you started but come to think of it that old sugar maple came down in the ice storm so lemme think a bit here.”

Trying to find your way in a new environment is a challenge for all of us. Beyond geography there are so many adjustments to be made, so many changes to routine and an abundance of opportunities to discover things both wonderful and fulfilling.

For relocating families one of the top-ranked considerations is where the children will go to school. There are so many variables to evaluate and as they come down to the fine strokes of selecting the perfect home the availability of high-quality education will factor heavily in the decision. 

As we’re navigating change it’s helpful to have a GPS that can provide guidance well beyond where to turn left and where to veer to the right.
