Pros

They provide helpful, easy to understand assistance in a timely fashion. Over other web-based programs we've used or reviewed, Sycamore stands out as the best value and highest quality for our money.

They really are doing their best to help schools succeed. They have great integrations with google, which for us was one of the primary deciding reasons for going with them.

Overall I like the product. My school has started using more of the functionality of the software and receiving announcements and other important information has been helpful.

Pros

Thinkwave has been an outstanding addition to our summer program. Never before has communication with students and teacher been more seamless and effortless the with Thinkwave.

Being able to show my students exactly what they need to do to pull them up to their desired grade is fantastic.

George C.

This software allows access to grades by teachers, admins, parents, and students alike. It makes keeping track of grades easy and hassle free, so inquiries about them can be answered swiftly.

Cons

This proposes to be a complete management tool for elementary and high schools. It is so buggy that all the parents in our school absolutely hate it.

I wonder if the schools purchasing the software, with the promise of a handy app for parents, know how bad the app is.

We had to go with a different accounting system (Quick Books Online) because we couldn't integrate it with Sycamore. Email is hard to manage at times.

KA

Cons

Missing discounts the grade from the averaging entirely but makes you aware it is missing, and excused does the same.

George C.

Doing this for 10, 20, 30, 40 and 45 is rather obnoxious and takes up a lot of room in the drop down menu. The same goes when you try and make a check grade.

George C.

It needs improvements in the grade systems ASAP. Unfortunately, technical support is too poor.
