MySchool, a practical and flexible infant, primary and secondary school administration software.

MySchool is a tool that stands out for its simplicity in its implementation, in addition to the fact that it provides multiple configurable functionalities, so that automation with MySchool and work simplification is something verifiable in our daily work. We have personalized processes for calculating grades, multiple reports for all needs, and in general an administration system that increases communication between the institution and students.

PROS

MySchool's attendance tools are designed to help teachers and administrators keep track of attendance in a simple way, whether we are talking about a course or a class, and we can do this from a desktop computer, a tablet or even from a mobile device. Another activity that sets MySchool apart is the opportunity to quickly and easily manage and track attendance and generate the reports and reports that we need to share with administration and to generate the corresponding evidence for parents.

CONS

We can say that MySchool offers very good quality considering the price of use, and it has a platform that incorporates multiple services in a single educational ecosystem, however, we must evaluate the dimensioning of our institutions and validate the set of functionalities that MySchool has at the time, to make sure that it covers all our educational processes and work philosophy before migrating from another platform.

Reasons for switching to MySchool

MySchool can demonstrate its functionality during the testing period and the acceptance rate is extremely high.

Flexible, Customizable to your School, Excellent Support

MySchool has grown substantially over the last three years and has consistently provided excellent options to provide management of all school data. While it was overwhelming to use at first, the design of MySchool allows easy management and has consistently allowed more and more flexibility and customizable options. I would highly recommend MySchool to other schools.

PROS

-Excellent, prompt and extremely helpful support team. Always willing to answer questions and provide solutions to problems. -MySchool grows with your schools' needs from registration, attendance, government documents, assignments, grading, reports, scheduling, room management, locker management, and so much more! We started with a few areas and keep utilizing more areas each year to centralize all our data. -Most areas are customizable to preferences and needs of the school. Customizable grade reports allow us to develop our own report cards. -Ability to manage different levels of schools with different attendance, assignments, scheduling and grade report options. -Place to share ideas for future ideas and modifications on existing pages through AHA portal. -Ability to customize security levels within your school and determine who can access what pages and information.

CONS

MySchool has so many options that it can be overwhelming to get started but their support team has been an excellent support and it has been so worth the changeover!

The Swiss Army Knife of Student Informations Systems

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. This software pretty much does it all and does it well. It works well for the administration office all the way down to the classroom.

CONS

MySchool's GUI does feel dated and navigating the various options is not as intuitive as it could be. Many important options are buried in a menu system that isn't easy to use. I would like to see a more robust grade book and assignment section that gives teachers more control and students/parents more information. Customer support is good and helpful, but can take some time for issues to be addressed. Being a shared platform with other schools, customization is not always possible as changes to the system does affect the larger ecosystem.

Vendor Response

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.

Awesome database system and dev team !

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 ! Report export takes sometime a moment (less than a minute anyway) to generate the grades but it's mostly due to a complex calculation system we are using with many exceptions (sorry for complexity).

Vendor Response

We really appreciate your review Stéphane and so happy to read you are having a positive experience with MySchool. A new customised report solution is in the works and although it is early days, we think you will like it. Thanks again for the review!

Highly Recommended School Software

MySchool database offers a wide array of tailor made possibilities to suit the schools' different requirements. 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. First-time users should be also be aware that even the the programme is quite user-friendly, it requires some practice until one understands how the data is linked and the manner it may used for the school's advantage. However MYSCHOOL personnel are extremely helpful and offer immediate and clear assistance.
