The page to redesign is http://www.privateschoolreview.com
I'd like to try alternate header, footer and page frame for the home page – a good inspiration would be: http://www.freshbooks.com/
Menu should be in a light grey or blue horizontal bar (full width of monitor), using a slight gradient like here: http://www.freshbooks.com/
Content, however, should be centered and fit within 800px screen
The logo and search box can be placed above or under the menu, depending on what you think looks better.
The current frame should be replaced by either a color/gradient that fills to the edges of the screen, or removed entirely, depending on what you think looks better.
Redesign the footer like you did the header.
please remove the vertical frame on the left and right hand side of the page.
