Gail Berland

West Coast Schools Specialist

Gail Berland has experience at both ends of the admissions process — as the Head of Admissions for Prospect Sierra School for twenty years and as the Head of High School Placement for five of those years. Ms. Berland was a founding head of Prospect School and continued in administrative work when the school merged to form Prospect Sierra School. In her work with eighth grade students she was highly successful in placing students in one of their top choice high schools. Much of Ms. Berland’s administrative work brought her into close contact with admissions offices and administrative teams in private and public Bay Area schools and schools throughout the country. Close relationships with key administrators and admissions personnel have resulted. Currently, Ms. Berland consults professionally with families and students seeking guidance with school placement for kindergarten through high school. During this period she has expanded her first-hand knowledge of day and boarding options for this age group.

Ms. Berland holds a B.A. in History/English from the University of California at Los Angeles where she also completed a secondary teaching credential program. In addition, she holds a M.A. in Education from the University of California at Berkeley. With over twenty-five years of combined teaching and administrative experience to her credit, Ms. Berland offers expertise with respect to good school matches for students. This experiential base is complemented by her refreshing insights and vitality.
