Proprietary schools, in their various forms, are in the vanguard of the explosive growth in international schooling and are often exemplary of schools committed to providing cutting-edge educational programs and services. The unique opportunities and challenges facing proprietary schools are seldom the focus of gatherings of school leaders. The GLOBAL School Consulting Group’s “School Owner Roundtables” are the exception, as we intentionally focus entirely on the needs and interests of school owners. These unique events address ownership topics and rely heavily on peer expertise and experience through participant-driven dialogue.
