What do you like best?

We have been using Gradelink for several years now and it has simplified our administration and record keeping process tremendously. It's wonderful having everything centrally located in one database, online, that we can access from anywhere. It has reduced the clutter in our office as well as our classrooms by reducing the paper trail. It has made our re-enrollment and enrollment process smooth, efficient and professional. Gradelink has a wonderful support staff very willing to answer questions as well as show you where to find the answers yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure there's anything I dislike about it! It really has made my job much more efficient and organized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would encourage anyone to use Gradelink for their school's administrative needs. We just scratch the surface of what Gradelink can do but it has helped our school tremendously! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It reduced clutter and the need for a wall of filing cabinets in our office. It has made tracking our enrollment process very easy and efficient. It has streamlined our grading scales and policies for our teachers. It has also given them a way to record and log activities for each student individually instead of having to meet regularly to discuss and decide what should be logged.

What do you like best?

What I like most about Gradelink is it's ease of use. I am able to email my students and parents, complete my grades, and complete lesson plans all in one place! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I have disliked is that the CCSS aren't already placed into Gradelink. As most states use the CCSS, it would seem that it would be necessary for these to be in the Gradelink system already. It would also make it even more marketable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem I have solved using Gradelink is that I can easily and quickly get information out to my students and parents at the same time without having to remember email addresses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Gradelink is a simple to use product that will satisfy the needs of schools in all departments. Teachers will benefit from a sophisticated, yet simple to use grade book. Students and parents will easily be able to track assignments and see grades as well as teacher's web pages. Office staff will benefit from family and student records that are well-organized and useful for billing and communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some parts of Gradelink work independently from one another which can be a bit confusing to understand. For example, if you enter prospects into the database and those students decide to enroll, that information does not carry over to the students side. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Come up with a good migration plan during the summer and pay close attention to all the details so it is setup correctly. Train teachers and staff well and don't assume everyone understands what they are doing just because it seems simple. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gradelink has become are school-wide database for all student and parent information. Teachers keep grade books and automatically create report cards. Office staff keeps track of all student demographic information as well as billing families and collecting payments. All admissions is handled in Gradelink including the enrollment and re-enrollment process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is extremely easy to use and has many features which other companies charge extra to use. The help feature is great and there are video tutorials which make it easy when learning a new facet of Gradelink. I also like that parents can link multiple children accounts together for ease of use when viewing their children's information such as grades, attendance, and discipline reports. The feature to change the site into Spanish is also well utilized by one third of our parent population. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I don't like about Gradelink. If I need something done with the data and can't find a place for it, I just call Gradelink and let them know. Once enough people have that suggestion, it becomes a reality. Most of the time, Gradelink makes improvements that I didn't even realize I needed. I highly recommend Gradelink to all of my principal friends. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will not be disappointed. The best part is that if you have trouble, their customer service folks are the best! They are patient, informative and timely in their responses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is great that I can use it to communicate with families via Smartsend Pro. We use to use a separate company as our robo call tool, but now Smartsend Pro does that and more. We have well utilized the mass email and texting features. We also use the voice option for robo calls. The best part is that it pulls directly from our Gradelink data base, so I know it is using the most up to date information. Prior to Smartsend Pro, I had to maintain a separate data base of parent information. It never failed that when I needed to send out an important message, we had not gotten around to updating changed or new phone numbers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

User friendly, helpful staff, teachers can access from anywhere via app, phone or computer. Parent interface, many types of reports are available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike a think :)

However, I wish it would allow parents to log in and set up appointments with the teachers, that way, keeping everything electronic.

Would be nice if the day of the appointment, the parent, teacher and back end email gets generated to remind each person about the meeting taking place. Then would be nice if thee was a teacher to log down what the meeting was about and what the outcome/resolution was. That way, we administrators could be more informed about issues before they end up in the office.

It would also be nice to be able to input old information from previous students (Historical).

The catholic school where I work has been open since 1927 and there are tons of records that should be in some type of database. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I Wish transcripts could be printed in groups (such as grade level) instead of having to print each individual student. At the end of the year when trying to get final transcripts to colleges OR getting information out for college applications, scholarships, etc., it would be a lot quicker.
