We love hearing that Gradelink is enabling your school to run more efficiently, Victoria! Unfortunately, there are fees for tuition management and EnrollMe, but that's because there are additional costs on our end.

Cindy C.

Our school has been using this software for about 2 years and I am learning everyday .

2017-06-29

As Admissions Coordinator it has really helped the process for online enrollment and management of less paper.

Pros

What I like most is all that it has to offer, such as report cards, email communication and data management reports into exel or pdf.

Cons

For now, I do wish the prospects portion of the software was a little more refined. It does store information that as a school we do use and resource however I do wish somehow those could be status switched to new enrollment if they chose to enroll. Seems like a lot of duplicating of information.

Glad we made the switch!

2019-09-10

We have been able to simplify our procedures and systems with Gradelink. Most data is now held in Gradelink--a huge help.

Pros

Accessible from anywhere. Exports to xcel.

Cons

Gradesheet - wish assignments only required date due (not date assigned), and that date due would auto populate as current date (or allow this to be customizable by each school).

Using Gradelink

2019-11-04

Pros

Gradebook, attendance, enrollment, and parent communication.

The cost increases that have been added to make small changes to the enrollment paperwork. I get fees for large changes. But to edit or change wording is a bit extreme.

Time Saver

2019-10-31

We save paper by not having to print our report cards or progress reports for parents since they are accessible to them online.

I refer to it often to record student attendance, look up phone numbers, and check on student information.
