Our Story

ParentSquare makes it easier for every parent to be involved at school. And students whose parents are involved do better. That matters a lot.

We started ParentSquare because a solution was needed that helped parents feel better connected with their child's school. In today's ed-tech world, there are many tools focused on the school, teachers and students - school management systems, student information systems, learning management systems, newsletter tools etc. - but as a parent, there's only a confusing array of disparate one-way information sources that only keep parents as spectators.

Built for whole-school adoption, we cater to every adult at school and home, including those who rarely use technology. And with our ease of use and bi-directional, private, social-like elements, we engage the busiest teachers, parents and administrators.

ParentSquare has developed in large part based on feedback and requests from our passionate, forward-thinking users. Tell us how you use ParentSquare and what you want and we’ll gather it all up to evolve. Thank you!
