The Suite encompasses a feature-rich content management system, mobile communication app and stunning website designs that empower school administrators and educators to build fully interactive and cohesive websites that meet the needs of the educational community, and elevate school and district’s brands.

“We are delighted to be recognized for our commitment to enhancing school communication and improving student outcomes,” expressed John Carbrey, co-founder and CEO of SharpSchool. “It's an honor to receive validation for our work and be awarded for the second year in a row.”
