Very disappointing 1/5
I agree with the other reviews here, this new version is terrible, dashboard is really unusable. Used to be a great app.
Looks very unappealing. I just want to see all my grades with my teachers listed on them. Looks very unorganized on the important information. Please get back the old powerschool.
WHERE ARE MY GRADES?? 1/5
By Absurd snakeheadjjjjjjjj
School has been over for about a week now. This app doesn't have any grades right now. No 1,2,3,4 quater grades or exam grades. FIX THE APP
By Lyssa 😍
LOVE THE UPDATE!!!! but once i reopened the app for a second time my GPA disappeared and all of the boards are blank!
New update problems 1/5
When I updated the app and used it I thought it was interesting with the new changes and most times when I log in and then exit I have to log in again please fix!!
Update is horrible 1/5
I can't see my final grades or my gpa I hate that it makes you flip the screen to see the whole year but won't even show my total year grade which is on the website the app is totally useless now. I loved the old version it was so easy now I can't even use the simple things on the app. I'm switching back to the website for now until the app is actually usable.
Terrible Update 1/5
Please go back to the original grid.
I LOVE the Update...Don't Switch 5/5
I actually found the previous design of the app to be too cluttered and unappealing and now this new design is much more cleaner and simpler. It seems like most of these negative reviews aren't really about the app itself and some things that are being complained about can be fixed. If there are things you don't want to see you can easily edit your dashboard to remove them or reorder them to whatever you prioritize. And it's the app's fault if you're not able to get the grade you would've liked which for some reason people seem to think is relevant to the function of the app...
As the old saying goes, if it ain't broke don't fix it!
Awesome Update!! 5/5
There are way too many negative reviews on here which don't accurately reflect how cool this new update is. I can easily customize my dashboard, and while the UI is different, it's cleaner and much easier to interact with than the old app.
Please bring back the grade spreadsheet. It is much easier to see grades. I use PowerSchool a lot and the update is very hard to use.
Messy update 1/5
Hello, I am a blind and visually impaired high school student, and I updated to the new version of the app, and I hate it. I don't think you were thinking about making it reliable for blind people before you just changed it on us. Did you ever think about blind people can only check their grades on their phones? I don't think you did, did you? I'm not trying to be mean, but I can't do a THING on this app anymore. Very unreliable, I can't see the assignments very well, or anything like that. I'm very disappointed. Please bring back the old version. Us blind people need to see our grades. Thank you.

I was wondering how you could improve on that easy to read dashboard screen that showed everything I needed to see right up front and now I see that you couldn't. The new dashboard is not helpful. I have younger students for whom GPA does not apply, so to have a third of the screen taken up with blank space is frustrating. Also loved how I could swipe between my children. Now I need to pull up a drop-down menu to switch children. Please stop fixing what's not broken.
What happened to the old version? 1/5
This new version is extremely confusing, and poorly thought out. I would appreciate it if the normal dashboard and assignments tab came back.
Please go back! 1/5
It's an empty shell with no info about my schedule or anything it only shows my school name and info not my actual stuff like GPA or classes.
This is just plain terrible
Update Ruined It 1/5
By 5'9" Meets SS
please fix the update it's unusable now and crashes anytime I try to open the app
Go back to old version 1/5
This new layout is not good. Old one was better. Why change it. You made something great. Not great.
Bring back old update 1/5
By Go Joshua l.
This update is terrible. I used to be able to see grades on a grid and on a dashboard but now there's so many different things you have to click 20 things to get what you want whereas before it just showed up to what you needed... YOUR GRADES. We don't want all this other stuff we want the old update back!
Terrible New Update 1/5
By Brezel Fan
As I opened the powerschool app today to check my grades (even in the summer) like the diligent student I am, I realized something. The interface had changed and the display was different! 'Okay,' I thought, as I checked out the new display. Then, I noticed the way it displayed my GPA. Instead of the discreet numbers at the top that the old interface had, this one was huge with blazing numbers and stars that went away when it wasn't a 4.0. I am a very hard worker, and this past year was rough for me, but seeing my not perfect GPA displayed like that deeply saddened me. I was unmotivated, upset, and I feel like even though I'm not a 4.0 student, that doesn't mean I'm not great in other ways. Perhaps I'm just a bad test taker. However, since the stars show me I'm not perfect since I don't have full stars, then I think I'm not perfect and I'm very sad. School is a breeding ground for depression and anxiety, and this new GPA display definitely makes it worse. It reminds me that I'm a failure each and every time I open the app to check my grades. Please change this, or I will be quitting school.
Sincerely, a very very concerned student
It doesn't work. Every time i put my username and password in it doesn't work. But when i go on the website it does. Make up your mind
The new UI is horrible and is designed like a social media, I don't want to have to go to a the website just so I can check my grades properly. There are some features which I just don't get why they removed. It was really handy to just see every assignment by period just listed there. Please go back to the old PowerSchool.
Serious Downgrade 1/5
This new change is awful I hate how it is displayed, there was nothing wrong with the old version and it is really annoying how I can't see the grid up front.
I can't open the app 1/5
The app won't open and just crashes every time I try to open it.
Please go back to the other version!! I do not have a life at all & my grades are the only thing I really care about. Why are you making my life so difficult. For the love of god PLEASE go back to old version of the app!!!!!!
Horrible update!!!!! 1/5
Please go back to old version!!! This update is confusing and hard to find what I'm looking for. Old version much easier to read and more pleasing to the eye. How do I revert?!!!!!!
What were you thinking? 1/5
This version is terrible! Seriously I have nothing positive to say. I am a parent with 3 children in the school district. They check this app 4x a day and I keep track as well. The dashboard allowed us to see every class on one screen. Now it's a mess! Why would you change what I thought was almost perfect. I gave the original 5stars. If I could have given no stars, I would have
Go back to the old layout! 1/5
The new update has a less functional layout, making it harder to view all grades at once. The old version was perfect. Also add daily planner so I don't have to go to safari.
I hate it so much because me as a student don't like how my mom gets notified when my grade drops and every score I get on a test. I wish I didn't have to put a star
The app was just fine the way it was. See the year in one screen was easy. This updated version is HORRIBLE!!!
If it is not broke.. just leave it.
The update is absolutely awful. It is impossible to see the grades I need. Please revert the app back to the old format. Thanks
This update is awful. Dashboard where everything is on one page was perfect. Hard to navigate. Put other version back please
App Crash 1/5
App crashes immediately
new update 5/5
i really like the new update! i think it will be easier to see my grades + assignment due dates when school starts again. the old view was slightly annoying for me in my phone- i always had to scroll around and now everything is in one place.
Previous menu 3/5
Pls go back
Like it 5/5
Just installed the update. More stable tabs before. Nice new update. Like the custom dashboard. Nice to be able to not see stuff I don't need. Like the colors.
So bad 1/5
I wish I can change back to the other power school this one is so hard to control and I want to see my schedule and my teachers but in this one I can't find any of things I want
By Lloyd Savage
Wha-happen? Your widgets are no longer available or listed.
Great app, but written by dog coders. 🐶
Empty shell 1/5
The new version is an empty shell that doesn't even display any info! No student info, no profile info. It's all still on my account on the website. But the app all fields are blank. Same problem with the second update today.
Awful update 1/5
This new update is truly awful. All I want to see are grades. I don't want to scroll down and I don't need this huge table view! Please go back to your old version because this is not usable.
Newest version not as good 1/5
By Brian Marofsky
Please bring back the old dashboard.
Update is good on paper but lacking features 3/5
Guys, the update has an amazing UI but it is lacking features such as Big Amazing GPA and Passcode Lock. Also it crashes on some older phones. Please fix your errors before this coming School year.
New version terrible. Please switch back. 1/5
The new version is barely usable. Please switch back to old!!
You have to click on multiple screens just to find the information you're looking for, whereas in the old version, the grades are right on an easy to read grid on one screen. This new social media feed/layout is confusing and unnecessary.
You took away the totals on the attendance grid - for number of days absent. And now the teacher's name is not showing with the absent date, which is helpful.
You also made it very difficult to find exam grades and whether or not they are posted. The new GPA listing is ridiculous.
Go back 2/5
Please go back to old grid style. This new update makes me have to dig to find the information I need. I prefer to see it all at a one glance like the previous version. With 4 kids to check on this is completely irritating and a waste of my time!
It works 3/5
It's alright, but I haven't been able to find my gpa even though I have it set to be seen on the home page. It's a bit more confusing to navigate than the previous version. But it works
It's trash now 1/5
By Dawn Balliro
The new format is HORRIBLE! Why can't you people leave well enough alone?!
By The pie guy of America
As a student I normally check my PowerSchool on my phone 2-3 times a day during the school year. The thing I loved about this app was that it was simple all my information was there and could see easily how my grade had changed and in what class. Now I can't, now it's harder, more complicated and less intuitive. My grades aren't a gimmick don't make them into one. Sincerely a confused and concerned student
