Built to bring schools and communities closer together.
At SchoolSquare, we understand that engaging parents and community partners is critical to improving your students’ outcomes. We also know just how difficult that can be. From manually filling out paperwork to coordinating partners, the partner management process can be time-consuming and frustrating.
Our Founder & CEO Simon Williams experienced these challenges firsthand while he worked as an ed-tech for the Portland (Maine) Public Schools. In 2015, he created SchoolSquare. Now, our software makes partner management easier and more efficient — allowing your school to focus on developing relationships with the community and developing programs that support your students’ success.
Maine Nonprofit of the Year
Range I, Range II
We will expand parent and community engagement in half of United States K-12 Schools by 2025 because creating meaningful community-based connections is essential to help students succeed in school and in life.
We imagine a world where students wake up excited to go to school, feel safe and engaged when they are there, and leave each day feeling like they contributed to something bigger than themselves.
