My School review

2012-01-17

I would strongly recomment this system to any school that is looking for a cost-effective and complete management system.

Pros

The main advantage is the centralised data that is available for all management needs including students and parents personal data, subjects and courses, attendance, disciplinary issues, VLE, fee management, transport info and time-tabling.

Cons

Have not found any yet.

MySchool is a great SiS. It is a powerful data and record keeping tool.

2017-06-15

This software has made attendance simple and made getting student and teacher information very fast.

Pros

The team at MySchool! The team's willingness to make changes or upgrades to the system when suggested. Most of the time we get a great response time.

Cons

Generating reports can be tricky or require many more steps than necessary.

MySchool Review

2019-03-11

Pros

Personally i believe it offers a common sense approach to school management and offers little in way of learning curves while being highly functional.

Cons

It doesn't work to all well or not at all with multiple tabs open , which can be annoying at time. The search function needs to be more 'flexable'. Especially when it comes to searching for people with middle name or 2 worded names. Example El Shaarawy cant not be searched by typing Shaarawy.

Response from MySchool


Thank you for your review! We've worked hard making MySchool as common sense and easy to use as possible - always thrilled to hear how easy it is to use. We have some big changes to our user experience coming this year which will improve both the search flexibility and how MySchool works in multiple tabs.

Great support

2019-03-25

We also use My School for sending out mass and individual emails. Data reports are generated in Excel and allow us to quickly view birthdays, track information from questionnaires, and monitor attendance and discipline reports.

Pros

The team have tweaked certain aspects of the software to suit our specific needs. The support team is extremely responsive .

Cons

Some of the wording is a little unusual, but once the students learned which menus to use, it hasn't been an issue.

This school management system is efficient.

2019-03-28

The team's reactivity to the various changes requested (grade reports, consents for RGDP, etc.) is very good.

Pros

This Saas embeds lots of useful functionalities for the day-to-day school management. Easy to communicate between parents/pupils/teachers/admin staff.

Cons

Let's say that file sharing could be improved a little.

Grade Reports - collecting data

2019-03-07

Grade reporting has had its issues but the support was always prompt and solutions have been found quickly even against time.

Pros

So far that everybody can input in one place and we can view all data is easily accessible - can be tracked I t must have a bigger potential as a software but we are not using it at its full capacity yet

Cons

I still have issues with the statistics part - getting data (results ) into an excel sheet - not catching the right data

MySchool is a great online school management system that is intuitive to use!

2017-06-13

Pros

I like how easy it is to run reports for specific courses or classes.

Cons

Trying to transition my staff from using a third-party marks/assignments program to using MySchool for assignments and reporting is proving tough.

Highly Recommended School Software

2019-03-11

As the Sector's main Administrator, I am fully dependent on the software to provide me with all the information required, from viewing the student's current location to more extensive data including attendance, students & teachers' timetables, reports and statistics.

Pros

I find this software to be extremely comprehensive of important school data which can be referred to and extracted according to the info required at the click of a button.

Cons

As with all extensive software, it may take a while until all the data is migrated/inserted.

Driving change with detailed result tracking

2011-10-13

For a school looking for a very competitve solution for information management that is likely to be used and to make a real difference, then this is the right choice.

Pros

In a few weeks we have already seen an improvement in pupil and teacher performance. The interface for parents and pupils is attractive and easy to follow.

Cons

Administrator can enter grades for technophobic staff but cannot, as far as I can see, correct grades that have already been entered by others. This is the only (fairly minor) problem we have encountered.

We have been very happy with My school.

2017-06-14

Helps us manage our small private school, from Finance to Report Cards and with a lot more to leverage still.

Pros

It took only minutes to configure and was robust enough to accommodate our needs. The support is excellent; I work in the IT field and can say with confidence that in my experience the support/configuration assistance was readily available and coming from staff that fully understood the software.

Cons

Having the ability to modify/personalize the reports would be a nice feature that does not exist today. ( That I am aware of)

This is a great company and solves issues quickly.

2017-06-13

The benefits are that the teacher's can learn this software quickly and easily. Each year we have new staff and they like the system.

Pros

This program is easy to use and makes keeping school documents such as report cards and transcripts up to date and accessible.

Cons

We have changed report cards, transcripts, courses etc. and anytime we run into an issue it is solved.

Awesome database system and dev team !

2019-03-01

Very responsive development team and support, we have been able to go through all our specificities in term of grade calculation (which are very specific to a Japanese system). The team has always been very helpful on each requests/issue we encountered and it's just the 1st year we are using MySchool, and haven't yet finished implementing all (had to rush this project due to abandon of previous one). Thanks guys you're doing an awesome work for us !

Pros

Webased school database system, available anywhere, it's just awesome compared to previous system. It's simple to use and understand. I haven't had to show much to our teaching staff to get their buy-in the project and nobody ever came to complain about any service disruption. It's really modulable and the team is very effective to find solution for different environment.

Cons

It's missing the possibility to create our own reports, but the team is very helpful and responsive to help create them in the background and make them available as soon as possible !

Myschool review

2020-02-06

Overall it is helpful for my company but it does sometimes get glitchy.

Pros

My company uses it for both tracking student data and attendence, as well as for contact information.

Cons

Sometimes it can log out and be difficult to log back in through our software system. If your session times out it can erase what you input.

The company is always ready and willing to promptly answer questions or solve issues that arise.

2017-06-13

Allowing us to store all our contacts in one place was a major selling feature.

Pros

MySchool meets our needs as an independent school in that it allows us to track all our current students and parents but also other people connected with our school; such as alumni, former parents, donors etc.

Cons

Nothing major. I'm not that familiar with the teacher grade book side of things; mostly the administrative side.

The Swiss Army Knife of Student Informations Systems

2019-03-07

My overall experience with MySchool has been positive. I really like how MySchool continues to improve their software and user experience. MySchool does a good job at being the Swiss Army Knife of student information systems.

Pros

MySchool is loaded with lots of great features that bridge the gap between administrative data to teacher usable data like assignments and grade keeping.

Cons

Many important options are buried in a menu system that isn't easy to use.

Thanks for the review! Love the Swiss army knife comparison - we really do try and cover all School requirements! We hear you on the GUI point and have good news. We've totally redesigned the MySchool User Experience with a new UI and many improvements to navigation and generally how things work. As this is a big project we're being very careful with testing and roll out to make sure it doesn't impact our customers negatively. We're also working on many areas of MySchool's functionality including grade books. We recognise the issue with some support issue types taking a while to resolve and have been working on ways to address this.

MySchool Review

2019-03-14

MySchool continues to improve their software to meet the needs of the BC education system. I do not intend to make a change to our student information system any time soon!

Pros

It allows us to track our alumni and donors as well as current parents and students.

Cons

Sometimes there are weird glitches and on occasion the system goes down but that's very rare.

Excellent, but still not fully-featured

2019-03-07

MySchool certainly opens doors in terms of what problems school have can be solved by modern enterprise-level technology. I am glad they have created a product to address this market need and look forward to the continuing maturity of the system.

Pros

A modern web-application interface makes MS convenient, efficient, and attractive.

Cons

Some important features are still missing from what MS is being marketed as being competitive with.
