What makes Lida Griest unique? Her background as both an English teacher and a school counselor, plus a deep desire to help students succeed, gives Lida a unique perspective as an educational consultant. Lida takes the time to fully understand the abilities and interests of her students and their families to best assist them in achieving the “right” school fit.
“There is no “best” school in Atlanta, and there certainly is not a “#1” college in the US for all students. Let all of the pollsters and experts who research various facts about universities say anything they want. The very “best” school is the one that makes your child academically successful in a nurturing environment that encourages him/her to face new challenges.
Lida began her educational counseling firm in 1998. Since that time she has worked with hundreds of families helping them identify the “right” school fit for their children. Lida enjoys working with students of all ages, ranging from five-year-olds to students applying to graduate programs.
It is a personal investment in her clients that makes Lida a remarkable school counselor. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her!
