Our Story

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.
