Pros

It is now seamless and very useful. Our parents are very appreciative of the improved communication we now offer as well as the mobile app that lets them more easily track their child's progress.
It is very user friendly and affordable for small schools. Notable: Teacher Pages which have been very Covid Friendly, great report section and parent friendly app.
I particularly am grateful for the patience and knowledge of the customer care resps. No matter how simple or trivial my questions or issues may be, they are very gracious and helpful.

Pros

They are always improving and keeping up with current trends. Skyward has absolutely OUTSTANDING customer service.
It's a wonderful portal that helps parents to monitor their kids' education and take proactive steps to stay involved.
Custom reports are also very useful, being able to limit the information to only what I want on the report is helpful.

Cons

There are no features that are too hard to use. I was not here when this program was integrated.
Also, the statements for the parents can be confusing.
Since I'm beginning to learn a little more of the software, I can not make an accurate comment about what I dislike least about the software.

Cons

It is forced down your throat with no support just "here do this and if you don't you're in trouble but we won't help you at all.
I see that it may be confusing for one that is not computer savvy. There is a lot that you can do with this program that can be overwhelming.
Very difficult to use and a waste of time and energy.

I want to shout out to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who has been my go-to guy this year he's solved all the issues I've had in one phone call. He's personable, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. Also, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has helped a lot setting us up re-enrollment for 2021-2022

Pros

There are many tiers to Gradelink - student management, grading, transcripts

Our experience has been fantastic. We worked with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for the demo, introduction, and implementation of the product and [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for any technical support that came up. Both men were extremely helpful, providing individual webcasts and personalized screen recordings to educate me and my staff on the features and benefits of Gradelink.

Great for grade school but lacking customization for adult learners

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

This software is an amazing database for keeping student records. It is highly customizable and there are endless fantastic features for teachers when it comes to lesson planning and class management.

Cons

Not all schools are grade schools. The ability to change the verbiage of “parents” to something else would be helpful. It is also challenging to use the progress report feature because our school does not have “Terms”. Students come and go all year and have different program lengths. This makes for difficult reporting with the features Gradelink has. Lastly, there is not a way to quickly copy a class and bring all existing assignments with it.

Vendor response

Thank you, Whitney. We value your feedback! It helps us gain a better understanding of our schools' needs.

We are considering the addition of EnrollMe! for online enrollment. I contacted Gradelink to inquire about the product, and the representative answered all my questions and immediately emailed me information I requested! I was able to get through quickly to a representative, and he was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The customer service has been awesome every time I've contacted them!

Excellent Support with Issues that arise.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I like the ease of use with student management. I also like the support that I receive when I have an issue. The support is topnotch!! [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has helped me on several occasions and is very knowledgeable about the product and very professional.

Cons

The thing I like least about the software is not being able to pull just the current year EnrollMe information in a report. The report pulls ALL information in EnrollMe (from the first year we used it which is about 4 years of data) and the report is cumbersome. I can get what I need, but it takes several extra steps to get it to a more manageable size.

Lacking in features

Reviewed 7 years ago

The fact that you can't convert a prospective student to an active student is enough to look elsewhere for a different software. There is no flexibility in reporting - it would be helpful to be able to just choose the fields you want to show up in a report, but that's not possible. If you're just looking for something to keep track of grades only, it might be ok, but the contact management portion is severely lacking.

Gradelink: Teacher Gradebook

Reviewed 8 years ago

We have been using Gradelink for 4 years and are very pleased with the Teacher/Admin/Student interface and the prompt, courteous customer service. After the initial set up, Gradelink staff continued to work with use to ensure our report cards and transcripts presented the student information the way we desired it to. The staff at Gradelink is continuously looking for ways to improve their product and listens to what we, the customer, desires, i.e. parent/student app, text message blasts, separate student/parent logins, etc.

Pros

As a teacher I appreciate the ability to see my students quarterly average instantaneously. I also appreciate that I am able to see the weight each assignment carries toward the overall grade. Add/editing assignments is very easy.

Cons

As a teacher, this software meets all my needs.

It's comprehensive. It serves as our online gradebook, school communication system, and student information system.

Sounds like St. Mary School is getting a lot out of Gradelink, Amanda! We do work to keep our fees as low as possible, however the email-scheduling feature is part of SmartSend Pro, an optional set of communication tools (and includes text and voice messaging) that does have costs involved for us as well.

Gradelink has been a great partner, overall!

Pros

The program is available to parents to help everyone be accountable!

Cons

The program isn’t always so flexible for teachers! We need to have transparency to be vigilant about student progress!

Parents are able to easily keep up with student grades, disciplines, and classroom/school news.

Pros

Gradelink is easy to understand. Teachers are able to record grades, email all parents at once or just one, record discipline issues, write lesson plans, leave classroom news, and keep track of attendance all in one place. Administration can easily keep track of grades, attendance, discipline, and much more.

Cons

There are a few reports that I'd like to have that are not available right now, such as student roster sorted by period or teacher. Every once in a while, we encounter a glitch. However, overall we enjoy this website!

It's wonderful to know that you're getting so much use out of Gradelink, Rebecca! Please talk with your support rep about the reports you're looking for. If they aren't already available, it helps us to know what our schools need.
