About this app

What is ParentSquare?
-------------------------

ParentSquare is a safe and secure platform for all school-to-home communication. The two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface keeps everyone connected, creating a vibrant school community.

In today's ed-tech world, schools need a better communication system than relying on hard-to-track emails, lost flyers, missed robocalls, website updates that are never read, or piggybacking on SIS or LMS tools meant for student communication. ParentSquare brings the power of ed-tech revolution to the parents. It reverses the trend for disparate, one-way communication that keeps parents as 'spectators' to their child's education.

Understanding the need for a whole-school adoption, we strive to keep an easy to use interface for ParentSquare, much like the social tools you are used to in today's online digital world. ParentSquare caters to every parent, including those who rarely use technology.

It's better than trying to find announcements on Facebook or outdated websites. Frustrating because app notifications seem to not be an option on my new Galaxy S24. I checked that the phone is set to allow notifications for the app and used the advanced settings so I could go to the app and fine tune how I get messages. Luckily, texting was an option since the app notification slider keeps changing back to "no" every time I try to select it.

Very cluttered interface, not at all intuitive. Needs major UX improvements. Our district is rolling this out, starting with the communication section. The communication feed is a mess. It's a wall of repetitive text. The graphic design/visual aspect is so cluttered and overwhelming. Zero attempt at visual hierarchy. Get rid of the heart/comment stuff - why clutter the screen if the school disabled the comments? Use logos instead of cluttering screen with the full district name. ugh.
