I am highly appreciative of the support we received from Nitin, Gaurav and the entire DC Advisory team. They worked tirelessly to help us identify the right home for our business. They have a deep understanding of the Education Service domain globally and I highly recommend their team to others. Their dedication, hard work and advisory skills helped us achieve our goals and vision.

We are excited about working with OIS to build on the schools’ strong foundations and success to date with access to even more opportunities that enhance students’ learning. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. Our schools have access to a wide range of resources and support to enhance their success.
