Building Better School-Home Connections & Loving It
The idea for ParentSquare was born in 2011 when Anu, a computer engineer, who had recently taken a sabbatical from work to be with her young school-age kids, experienced the difference in how connected she was with her kids’ life at school being a stay-at-home mom. ParentSquare was started to bring the same connectedness to every family at the school. The software took shape with the help of other founders at 4 different local schools, and over a span of 2 years was picked up through word-of mouth by 20 other local public, charter, private, cooperative, jewish preK-12 schools. ParentSquare was launched in the fall of 2014 to the rest of the world.
From Our Wall of Love
Check out our Wall of Love to learn why our schools love ParentSquare!
"Parent Square has been an excellent additional form of communication between our teachers, parents and school. It is user friendly and has a variety of aspects from absence reporting to conference scheduling to parent/teacher interaction, that we find to be very positive when communicating with our parents. We are excited about using it at our school."
"It is very user friendly. The creator of Parent Square is simply awesome. She always responds to my questions immediately and really values the input of teachers and parents. I love how I can ask for volunteers, supplies, and conference sign ups so simply. Thank you so much for PS!"
"Parent Square is by far a more comprehensive program than our old ‘auto-dialer’. In fact, phone calls home are only a small part of the program. The ability to send emails, text messages and have parent respond allows us to really maximize our communication with parents. Additionally, as teachers are coming on board, they are really appreciating having the ability to use this program at the classroom level."
"This is our second year using Parent Square at Hope School. The Hope School community has always felt like one big family and Parent Square has greatly enhanced our ability to communicate to all of our family members. Thank you Parent Square!"
