What do you like best?

The upside of Quick Schools is the personal attention given to our small school (120 students), and their willingness to help us customize the management system to fit our needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the attendance could be reported as actual absences and tardies on the report card. Because we are using the period-based attendance, the absences and tardies on the report card show numbers based on periods. Thankfully, we have been able to have Quick Schools correct this issue for the transcript which is what is the most important. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend that you check all of the features to determine whether Quick Schools is a good fit for your school. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We wanted semester exams and final exams to be figured into the overall grade rather than attached to a semester. That took some time, but we are happy to have that solved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Quick Schools has the benefit of individual attention and their ability to help us tailor the management system to suit our needs. I like the fact that the SIS interface is customisable and we were even able to build and incorporate our own applications into the framework. The cost of the models being customised is appropriate. Overall, the output / cost ratio is outstanding. Customer service responds with questions immediately or quite soon after we email, and they are very good at solving problems or fixing slight errors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish that attendance on the report card could be reported as real absences and tardives. Since we're using period-based attendance, the report card's absences and tardies display period-based statistics. Fortunately we were able to get Swift Schools to fix this transcript issue, which is the most important one. Some of the functionalities we might use are absent, or there are the functionalities that are somewhat restricted for our specific usage. However, I find that most SIS providers have this problem, and even though they provide all of the features (at huge prices), they still don't completely satisfy our needs, so Quickschools isn't a big issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This product is very easy to use, it greatly improves communication with teachers. that's why I recommend its use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We decided to include semester exams and final exams in the overall grade rather than being attached to a semi-annual. That has taken some time, but we're glad we've solved that. QuickSchools has helped us to customize our report card templates numerous times, creating multiple cross referencing reports in several different fields for our students and staff alike. We now control staff attendance via Quickschools as well as student attendance, by creating and incorporating our own staff attendance app into the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Online, so no tech staff or onsite hardware required.

2. Within the chosen plan, all updates are free.

3. Highly intuitive for teachers - very little training required.

4. Word-class support via chat. In 12 years I've waited only once longer than a minute for a reply; techs are very knowledgeable; great follow-up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Every improvement I've had with QS that I have submitted to tech support has been implemented eventually. They are very responsive to customer requests. The biggest problem I have is that report cards have to be massaged every quarter to render properly. Like all systems QS has occasional glitches, but this problem almost always turns out to be data entry errors on our end. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great product, great support. After 12 years, I'm extremely satisfied. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The biggest win is how much less time is being spent on recording grades, preparing report cards and gathering data - the Summary Reports and Report Creator systems are invaluable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The chat feature! I use it often. :) Getting immediate answers to my questions and not having to submit tickets that may take hours or days to get answers to is a great time-saver. They are extremely friendly, very responsive and resourceful. If something is not available, they always follow up with an email on their findings. They are willing to consider functions not currently available that I would sometimes find helpful by forwarding to their developers. They are always looking to improve. I also like the intuitive aspect of how the admin is set up. It's very functional and has a great lay out. It's a plus that each feature comes with a video tutorial easily accessible on each page to help walk you through how to use it. In comparison with other SMS- QS is aesthetically appealing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not able to administer virtual assignments or exams. Some integration with Google Classroom would be helpful. Some pages do not speak to each other, for instance, for some reason sometimes grades don't carry over to the transcripts and you have to manually update items. I'd like to be able to customize the attendance feature more by including an automated RFID entry option, however, this type of customization comes with a large cost. The discussion board does not timestamp. Class Discussion board can use some updating. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We are an institution of higher education. I think QS is good for k-12, and higher ed institutions. It's great for daily use by teachers, admin and students. All it's features do what you need them to do, and do it well. My only drawback would be the cost, however, we are looking into whether or not QS is on par with other SMS vendors or if there's a more cost effective provider out there for our needs. Overall, I highly recommend QS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use QS for it's Gradebook, Attendance, Global Course Set Up, Transcripts, Report Cards, and Finance features. Though there are some pluses, it would be nice to have payment plans and reminders customized for finance, and a more cost-effective automated attendance tracking feature. The students are easily able to access their grades and report cards. The teachers are able to update attendance from their mobile devices which is a huge plus!

QuickSchools makes organizing grade books and assessments easy for our school. It is great that it computes averages and allows you to managing marking periods with relative ease. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

With the COVID 19 turn to virtual schooling, there was not a successful way for students to hand in assignments using QuickSchools. Having many platforms to have to use: one for grades/homework another systems for students' emails and video chats and then another system for handing in work made it very confusing for parents and teachers alike. It would be great if QuickSchools could develop a way for homework to be turned in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend QuickSchools for its relative ease of use and for the excellent customer service when you are having trouble. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It is much easier to keep track of student progress and it is easier to see when intervention is necessary because student grades are entered into a system all together by all the teachers. QuickSchools makes record keeping much for efficient than paper filing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

QuickSchools makes it convenient for our school to coordinate gradebooks and tests. It is nice to have averages measured and grading times are fairly simple to handle. It's a big time saver to get instant responses and to not have tickets to get responses that require hours or days. They are really polite, sensitive and insightful. They should also send an email with their results if anything is not there. They are prepared to accept things that are not accessible at present and that can also help me give them to their developers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The move from COVID-19 to virtual education rendered it difficult for students to use QuickSchools to effectively complete their work. It became quite difficult for teachers to have many tools to use: one for grades / house assignments, a new student email program and video chat and also a separate job submission method. It would be awesome if QuickSchools built a way to adjust assignments. Exams and simulated tasks can not be performed. Any Google Classroom incorporation will be beneficial. For starters, for whatever reason, some pages do not interact with each other, often grades are not transcribed and items must be changed manually. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For its relative ease of use and outstanding customer support, I suggest QuickSchools when you have difficulties. It's fine, I guess, for any school. Ideal for instructors, administrators and students daily use. All your tasks do and see what you need them to see. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Tracking success of students is also simpler because it becomes better to see whether action is required since all instructors are completing a student 's degree under one method. QuickSchools maintains documents much more accurately than paper storage. We use it for gradebooks, registration, regional class settings and financial functions. Transcripts, report cards. While some advantages remain, a customizable payment schedule and financial alerts and a cheaper automated attendance monitoring option will be good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

QuickSchools' tech support is prompt, professional, and personalized. Questions my staff have had are addressed immediately and fully. The grade book interface is intuitive, so there have been very few tech questions, but I know they will be addressed promptly. As a school administrator, I find it easy to navigate and to access school data. Generating tailored reports for the school districts we serve (we are a Supplemental Education Organization) is largely effortless using QuickSchools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In all honesty, I have contemplated this question at length, but I have not found anything to dislike about QuickSchools grade book platform; as an administrator, I have used others, so I am able to compare among several experiences in the past. I am very pleased with QuickSchools and plan to use the program going forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Staff adapt to it quite easily. Parents and students access it readily. It is easy to set up at the start of the school year for admins. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The most challenging problem for us has been detailed grade reports for our client school districts. I find it very easy to put these reports together at a moment's notice. This is of enormous benefit as we service homebound students and summer school students who are mainstreamed back into their district schools and we provide the academic report or context for re-integration. Parents and students are able to monitor progress in real time, which is an important tool. Finally, it was very easy for my staff to transition from our last grade book system to this one. The interface is, as I have said, largely intuitive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the QuickSchools is an easy-to-use and very intuitive site. The online grading books for teachers include many modules (students, students' admissions, attendance, grading books, report cards, transcripts, etc.) which feature the same features as large companies' gradebook systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't find it as easy as we need to customize the system. We have several grades in one class, for instance. Each level has its own template for the report card. Classes are mapped on the report cards. We need to split the Gradbook into many grade books, the only way to accurately map the class to various templates. It seems that we always have some technical problems when I print the report cards, and something does not flow straight from the gradebook. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For anything that is easy to set up SIS, teachers find it very convenient to use. If you want to see something else. I can recommend the use of this product for many different modules that you can integrate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Help us to customize our unique school report cards. During operation of report cards, we have specific needs always, and fast schools are always there to help our personalization needs. We also asked for integration with the Apple School Manager and are developing the customization based on the requirements for ASM upload. The weighting system enables the teachers, based on per centages for conduct, testing, homework and final exams, to calculate a final rating using our formula.

What do you like best?

So many things . . . but if I had to choose the BEST feature, for me it has been the support I have received as I learn QuickSchools. There has NEVER been a time that I have not been the first person in queue when I visit the chat room, and I usually have my answer to my challenge within 2-3 minutes. This have been critical at times, since more often than not, I need my answer quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything yet - and that is saying something, as our organization is not a typical educational setting. We have had to customize a lot of our set-up, and at every turn, the platform is flexible enough to do everything we have required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The cost, the attention by the staff, ability to mark within transcripts, chat feature.

The gradebook is fairly easy to use and intuitive.

The chat feature is a great help for all of our staff.

For the most part, most of the tech support is helpful. I would like to name Yanni and Justin as being the most helpful on chat. Also, Ezekiel is amazing getting back to us and finding solutions to our issues.

The ability of being able to email whole classes at once is amazing!

Although we have not used it, I like that there is an option of a self paced gradebook.

On report cards and in the discipline module, it is nice that we can write freely in the comment sections.

Easy for an admin to switch amongst teacher's gradebooks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Attendance, report cards do not speak to transcripts, scheduling module is tedious.

We have found that attendance is simply horrible and does not work well with our school. We can't wrap our minds around it.

Gradebooks seem not to autosave so it is important that you remember to save otherwise you could lose an entire column such as a test.

The report module is a bit difficult to navigate and doesn't always seem to work the way I believe it should.

There is no search feature in the messaging module and the entire staff can see what I have emailed out.

The inability to work on two different report card terms at the same time.

Semester Grades should be part of Term 2 report card instead of a separate section.

Would like an option to lock gradebooks when certain admins are looking at them.

It seems like QuickSchools is still in the beginning of being all it can be. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For now, I would recommend QuickSchools to a small school and understand that they are still working through some issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The staff is typically very helpful in coming up with solutions to our issues. The attention that we receive is stellar! Currently, we are working on NCAA transcripts and trying to hide custom semesters. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really like how QuickSchools is always working to make positive changes and create a better platform for schools. I appreciate how all information (contact info for students, registration, etc.) is in "one" place; i.e. I don't have to go to different tabs to find what I need. It is always good to see a platform constantly change for the better.

Positive aspects:

-The updated Messaging features

-Detailed student info

-Report Cards

-History of students and their academics (I am able to go to previous years and see grade books)

-One is able to interchange between teachers and grade books

-Editing the weight-ages of grades

-Notes and comments section Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Areas of improvement:

-There is not a draft/save option (like Google Docs, sheets, etc.)

-The app needs help; I really wanted to take attendance this past year on the App but the features need to be upgraded Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What makes me choose Quickschools again and again is their amazing customer service and true value for price. The outstanding, round the clock customer service is major benefit for us educators who often find ourselves working during the wee hours of the morning. Given that our organization is small, we also like that we are charged monthly. Furthermore, those charges are wholly dependent on the number of students enrolled, therefore the smaller, the less cost incurred. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Overall, I really like Quickschools. If I absolutely had to choose something it would be a detail when adding grade levels, which is a bit counterintuitive, because it is in the student section as opposed to the classes and homeroom section. However, for most others this is less relevant on an annual basis since grade distribution is traditionally the same in conventional schools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This product is especially useful for small schools looking for a management system. Especially one that is efficient with ease of use for all users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Quickschools allows for improved communication as well as more family and student involvement. The implementation of this program truly strengthens community. There is the ease of managing classes and grades, billing, after school clubs and activities, even homework with teacher, student and parent portals all in one system. There is also ease of communication within each of the aforementioned portals and an interface which encourages messaging. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It can be hard to remember to reset my grading system for the different grades when I print report cards. But once you learn that, it's just remembering to do it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Having a customer service feature makes this a step above everything else. Because running a school has so many features to learn, there is just no way to learn it all in one go and things come up continually that you have to figure out. And instead of searching through trial and error or reading through tons of material, it is so much more efficient to speak to an expert through their chat feature and learn right away.

What do you like best?

My favorite part about quickschools is the excellent customer service. Quickschools always has chat open, they respond immediately, and every one of them is very knowledgeable. This saves me time as a teacher. With most chats I frequently use, I usually test the waters with a few questions to see if the person I got is knowledgable, and leave the chat in order to get someone else if they know less than me. I never have to do that with quick schools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't really dislike anything that quick schools offers. I guess in a perfect world it would offer the option of becoming the teacher planbook, homework submission/grading platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't see something you need, just ask. When we started with quickschools, there were a couple things we needed to do that quickschools didn't offer. They quickly added it for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Quickschools allows us to integrate with our LMS to import grades. This saves time for the teacher. It creates reports, easily accessible to all teachers for adding comments. One huge benefit is that it has simplified a crazy school/teacher schedule. Because we are an online and on-campus school, the class schedules can be difficult to manage. But quickschools generates individual student/teacher schedules to make this run smoothly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that I can do robocall, text and email all in one location. I also enjoy being able to have my gradebook available at my fingertips. One feature that really helped is the visual of the attendance chart. Many parents don’t pay attention to lateness but when they have a pie chart they see how often their child is late. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I HATE that every time I have to call I need to do the captcha. It is very annoying. Some of my staff are visually impaired and they need to get assistance while using it. If I am already logged into the system I should be allowed to make the calls. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I think Quickschools has a great service and the ability to chat with someone really makes it amazing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Thank you for the wonderful review, Tania.

I hear you loud on clear on the captcha. We'll take a look into that ASAP!

What do you like best?

I love that QuickSchools is a very simple and intuitive site that is fairly easy to use. It incorporates many modules (students, admissions, attendance, grade books, report cards, transcripts, etc.). The online chat folks are very quick to respond and for the most part, they can resolve any issues and answer questions fairly quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I find that the system isn't as easy to personalize as we need. For example, in one class we have several grade levels. Each grade level has their own report card template. The report cards are mapped to classes. The only way to correctly map the class to several different templates, we need to separate the grade book into several different grade books. That stinks for the teacher, as they have to flip between 2 or 3 grade books to enter grades for one class. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a easy to set up SIS, something the teachers will actually find easy to use, then look no further. With their choice of customizations and many different modules you can incorporate, this is a great little SIS! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

QuickSchools helps us customize report cards for our very unique school. We always have specific needs during running report cards, and Quickschools is always available to help with our customization needs. We've also requested integration with Apple School Manager, and are working out the customizations based on ASM upload requirements. Once this is seamless, it will benefit us in the cost of man-hours needed to integrate manually. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that no matter what the problem, a Quick Schools tech is always available to assist. On top of that, they are always patient and encouraging. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have a unique situation as a University-Model school. Our K-5 students attend T/Th and our secondary students attend T/Th/F. Because of this, we could only use the scheduler for our secondary students. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Quick Schools is perfect for smaller schools looking for a system with unique requirements. If their support staff doesn't have a solution, they will investigate and follow through with a solution if at all possible. The cost for QS is affordable, which is great for a school on a limited budget. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We had some unique circumstances in our high school courses. We offer a variety of classes: 2 semester, 1 semester, honors, AP, and dual credit. Some classes are weighted as well. The QS team developed a unique transcript that works well for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

QuicksSchools was a program that was at the school when I started and none of the (present) staff really knew how to use the program. When I started 2 years ago, I began in the middle of the school year so it was "catch up" for me. It is very user friendly and the customer service is exceptional. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is not always obvious where information is located in the program. Would like it if when a student graduates, it is easier to find that student. Usually need to send transcripts, etc and they don't automatically pop up. Is there a way to make a screen with all the graduates and year of graduation that would last approx. six months. Also, do not like that graduation date/date left school are not separated. Colleges want the actual graduation date, but it shows as left school. We have had to manually enter in order for it to show graduation date. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I do not think I can answer this question thoroughly because I am so new to using this program.

Right now, every new item I learn in the system is a benefit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy to navigate, great GUI, cloud base, the way new fields can be added, it has modules for students and also for parents and great support!!! We used other SIS in the past and QS stands at the best by far, it covers everything we need and new improvements are constantly added, soon it will have an app for teachers and parents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Does not have an administration/finance module, it should be great to have only one system in the school. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it and you will be fascinated at the way QS works. Since the configuration is easy to set up, covers all needs of international schools and the support is great, it has a great collection of videos for training but also there is a great help desk support, so in any case in a matter of minutes you solve your doubt or inconvenience.

What do you like best?

QS schedules students randomly (as we requested) by grade in required classes with class size limits, allows students to select four elective classes from lists of 16 different options, generates rosters for teachers, and creates personalized daily schedules for students. I used to do all of this work in Excel; QS has saved me hours of work and stress, while producing excellent results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Any time we dislike something about QS we share the feedback, and they make the changes. We have been with QS for 3.5 years, and they have innovated continually to meet our needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The Help Desk Support in QS is outstanding. We get immediate results and support 24/7 at all of our sites across the country. Furthermore, all QS team members genuinely feel like members of our team; they are invested in our success and support our timelines and goals. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use QS for student enrollment, scheduling, family communication (both email and text), discipline tracking, attendance taking, end-of-year reporting, and our online database of student records. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
