Meet Sandy Eiges, MA

My name is Sandy Eiges and I am the owner and president of LA School Scout. LA School Scout helps families find the right fit school for their child, whether it's preschool, elementary, middle, high school or college. We have a college counsellor on staff. We have a special needs specialist on staff as well. We work with families to find really the fit in schools that will work for their child and for their family. So we aim to reduce all of the stress and worry about looking for school for each family. I myself am a single mother to a 10-year-old daughter and wish I had time to do other things, but focus mainly on my work and my child. I occasionally do sneak out to see a movie. I really want to focus though on helping others I think, looking for schools was such a stressful thing in my own life – and I was a professional going into this – that when I started this business almost 7 years ago. I really wanted to be able to have an impact on other families being able to get through this process with as much knowledge as they could possibly have about what their options were.

Education Consultant

Originally from New York, Sandy Eiges holds a master's degree in Social Work, and has worked in and around education her entire professional career. She has served as executive director for Save the Children's field office in Jerusalem, where she created and published a cultural diversity curriculum for grades 5-9. This curriculum was subsequently adopted by the Israel Ministry of Education. She also served on the executive board of UNICEF in Israel and created and ran after-school programs for latch-key children. She was, at one time, a charter school developer for a start-up Reggio-inspired K-8 school. Sandy was also the charter school developer for YouthBuild Charter School of California, a high school diploma program for out of school/out of work youth, located in Watts, East Los Angeles and El Monte; for which she also served as interim principal. She has a child who attended a Reggio-inspired preschool and who now attends a project-based elementary school. Inspired by her own quest for the right schools for her daughter, and her extensive research into schools in Los Angeles, Sandy started L.A. School Scout LLC. For the past six years she has helped families looking for the right fit in preschools, elementary schools, middle and high schools for their children.

When she’s not helping families find the school that’s right for them, she’s enjoying time at home with her relentlessly curious and brilliantly creative daughter, who is a constant inspiration for the hopes, dreams and ideas that drive her life. LA School Scout helps families make informed and thoughtful choices about the schools that will best suit them. Our mission is to promote, encourage and applaud children's enthusiasm for school and learning; take the mystery and anxiety out of the school finding process for parents; and provide families with comprehensive information on all of their educational choices.
