Dealing with registration in apps

The apps have an implicit way of authorization. When users install the app, they need to choose the school they belong to and their role: student, parent or staff member. The app automatically binds the user to a particular school using auto-generated login and password.

Tracking the community performance efficiently

School administrators can observe parent and student engagement level. Having quick access to grades, calendars, newsletters, and lunch payments, engagement can now be done within seconds.

Smooth communication inside the community

With the easily-customized notifications, users don’t have to look around for information or download multiple systems. Through The School App’s backend, it takes seconds to send an email or record a call.
