Schoolfront has been very responsive in meeting our requests.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, Maplebrook School
I have been a SchoolFront user for three years and enjoy it immensely…Overall, the best thing since sliced bread.
~ Wendy Wurz,
Teacher, RCSD
I cannot think of any other tool that has so empowered parents and students.
~ Carol Sherwood,
Teacher, RCSD
I feel confident using the site because I know the data is backed up daily, so if there ever should be a problem, I won't have lost weeks, or even days, worth of data.
~ Pati Primarano,
Teacher, RCSD
This has been an excellent resource for our students and their families; it is way for parents to connect to what their child is doing in school.
~ Susan Towey,
Teacher, RCSD
Love the program. This program saves a ton of time.
~ Rose Gulley,
Teacher, RCSD
We have many international students and it makes it easy for the parents of those students to keep abreast of how their child is doing while at school.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, Maplebrook School
I love this site. It's a real help. I just wish all teachers felt it was worth their time to help my child a little more.
~ Katherine Richards,
Parent, RCSD
SchoolFront provides the basis for T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More), with a way to have an ongoing communication between teacher / parent / student.
~ Wendy Wurz,
Teacher, RCSD
SchoolFront is great because they design it specifically for your school’s needs so that you can get your work done faster and more efficiently!
~ Mike Reed,
IT Manager, The Howe School
SchoolFront staff have been easy to work with -- they are flexible and patient; and while we are a very small, unique boarding school, we are treated very well by the team at schoolfront.
~ Barbara McKell,
Technologist, The Maplebrook School
If I find a bug, or something that could be reworked to improve service, all I had to do was email SchoolFront and they would take care of it, plus ask for more information. With the death of customer service all over the map, this is a true rarity.
~ Pati Primarano,
Teacher, RCSD

SchoolFront makes management of disciplinary measures a collaborative endeavor, allowing school staff members to view and process incidents in a single, central, and up-to-date directory. Disciplinary incidents can be escalated where necessary, tracked to conclusion, and accessed for reference by members of the staff.
