Not so good 2/5
By fix it friend
It keeps kicking you out when you trying to log in. It’s really slow when you try to go to the different pages and to your other kids schools and messages. Then, once you get to your desired page it freezes😒👎👎so disappointed I would delete it if I didn’t need it for my kids.
So helpful 5/5
I’m so glad for ParentSquare it’s so helpful keeping me updated with what’s going on in school. Less stress, thank you.
User Friendly 5/5
The app is easy to use, even my daughter can use it. The app also provides a lot of important information and updates.
The way this is set up with our district, this app is useless, it only tells me what classes my children have and gives ability to email staff. I cannot see assignments, grades, attendance, or notes. What is the use of this app taking up storage space on my device? I can access email via other platforms much easier. I can see their same class schedule via “Canvas” and on canvas I can also see assignments, grades, attendance, and citizenship notes. This app is getting uninstalled with a quickness now that it’s been sitting idle and useless for nearly a month.
Great Communicator!! 4/5
This is great!! I can see my daughter’s progress and even communicate privately with her teacher. Before I was using Remind and it had a lot of glitches but with Parent Square it notifies you by email and you read it privately or in a group on the site. Love it!
Keyboard offset 1/5
Does me no good as a teacher or parent if I can’t log in. The keyboard is offset and half the keys are unavailable to use.
One stop multipurpose app! 3/5
Great app for most school, parent and teacher communication. I liked the forms and way to post things.
BIG LET DOWN:
Not an efficient and quick way to text parents because:
1) Other apps like Class D_ _ _ , work just like a text so when you reply, you are sure to be replying to the specific person that sent you the message. You have to choose to send it to the group. In Parent Square, depending on the device you’re using, you could be “answering a parent’s text” but inadvertently be sending it to the whole group (from your entire class to the whole school!).
2) Teachers need QUICK and efficient ways to communicate with parents especially in these times when zoom links failed and a new link might have to be sent immediately while trying to answer frantic messages from parents that can’t get into your zoom.
Wrong school 1/5
You have me in the wrong school. No one can figure out how to change it!!!
Multiple children 3/5
As a parent of 3 I find it frustrating that I get a notification then need to click on each child’s name to find the notification. I get that you don’t want info to get lost or missed but it would be nice to scroll through daily feed as well.
Love parent square 5/5
Very user friendly and so nice getting to keep in contact with your child’s teacher and message any time of the day when you have questions! Great app!
The UX is bizarre 3/5
There is a mountain of superfluous information and links on here, I can barely find what I need. The format of the emails I get when I get a message from a teacher is confusing and hard to follow, as well. I find it merely adequate.
I love it 5/5
I love it, it is awesome this app
Completely Surprised 1/5
I am so surprised by the positive reviews. My District changed to Parent Square this year and absolutely hate it. I had great parent communication in the past using Class Dojo - easy to use and functional on a variety of devices. Parent Square is so convoluted and does not lend it self to easy use on an iPhone 11 at all. My attempts to reach out to their supposed amazing support team has been a joke. Chat was never available only to find out they had turned off the chat feature. When I emailed with an issue their literal response was that they hadn’t seen that issue before so it wasn’t a priority for them to help me resolve it. I really wish I could wrap my head around how people find Parent Square worthy of these positive reviews...for me it has been nothing but an absolute nightmare.
Parents of kids in elementary and high school 5/5
By Bill abd Danielle
This app has been so helpful particularly during this difficult time. Things seems to change so quickly and this app keeps us up to date with everything in on place!
It’s great 5/5
I love it, it’s a super easy way to receive communication from my student’s school!
This app is so stressful to use 1/5
First , I get notifications through text and emails, I’m able to click and sends me straight to the app but when I want to go to the app and read again what the school sent i can’t find it, and it’s been going on every time, I happen to think this app has no use if I’m able to see school updates through text and emails and can never find them on the app. And now I was trying to check the app since I just got a new msg from school and the app just went black! I cant see anything I’ll probably have to un install and install again
Connectivity to multiple accounts 1/5
I can only get connected to one of 4 accounts. I have 3 children in 2 different schools and I work for the district and have an account for that side of things.
By Proud dad...
Appreciate the new app. Gives us more visibility to notices, updates, etc. It’s more crucial than ever under the circumstances.
Multiple schools for children 4/5
I have children in different schools and this has been a 1 stop shop of info for both schools! It’s really easy to use and I can select which school and posts I want to view at any given time. I do however, find there is a delay of when something is posted in the actual app and when I get the email alert about the update, this is why I rate it only a 4star rating. Other than that it’s a great tool for parent/teacher communication.
Great App! 5/5
As a parent it’s easy to use and a one stop shop for all of our teacher communication and scheduling.
Thank you 5/5
Thank you for making ParentSquare it is super helpful.
Great app! 5/5
By Ms Turiano
Very useful and time saving for teachers!
Open communication 5/5
This app offers so much to both parents and teachers my latest use is turning in late homework for my daughter .. simplicity is best and this app is just that .. Love It ...
Reply option 4/5
I don’t love that when I get an email from the teachers I can’t just hit Reply. There is a Reply button! But in small print below that it says please don’t Reply etc.
Love this app! 5/5
As a parent, I love this app! I love being able to re-read older posts without searching through hundreds of emails. I enjoy how informed I feel about my daughters school and district!
Great app 4/5
My only complaint is there is not an easy way to print a post from the app.
I like the app a lot. I like the instant connection with teachers and the school. I do wish it had my Child’s counselor on there. Otherwise, great!!!! 👏🏼👍🏼

I love it because everything you need it’s right there no ParentSquare. Love it Love it
crashes after one sentence in a message 1/5
Trying to write a message in this app is one of the most frustrating parts of my job as a teacher. And I teach beginning strings to 9-yr olds on ZOOM! Also, can you search posts? I can never find anything. It’s a great idea, but I try to avoid it when I can. Thanks!
Very helpful 5/5
By M. Esparza
I love this app, you are kept up to date on everything going on in school. Permission slips and everything that needs to be signed can be done on this website.
Good, but not able to save/download videos. 4/5
By Kimi in Carpinteria
This app is good, but I am not able to save video attachments.
Loving This New App ! 5/5

Love this App 5/5
By umpq bank
As an administrator and a parent, this app. Is great. It is very easy to use and has many great features. The staff are also great at getting back to you in a very timely manner and very willing to help solve your issues.
By scooty scootters
It’s great I just don’t like that you can’t pin an announcement so it stays at the top.
Effective interactive tool 4/5
I like being able to interact with teachers and get updates. I am still learning the multiple uses
By stacey savage 987
Absolute worst 0 out of 0.
Could be better 2/5
Not the easiest to fallow and look up posts on. Only notifies me on some of the post. Nothing came across on notifications about year book sales and prices going up. It was a very short window for purchasing at lower price. As usual Liberty Ranch falls short on notifications to parents, but this better than last year where it was almost non existent.
By naug dad
The app is very confusing, doesn’t always show the option your looking for until you close and re-open it and often times leads me in circles looking for something.
Quite easy to use.
User friendly/ improves communication 5/5
I am a teacher and Parent Square is a great way to communicate with parents, schedule meetings, and provide resources to parents. I am way more organized thanks to parent square. I love that I can see which parents have read my newsletter, and that I can have parents RSVP to evening meetings and gatherings. I upload photographs of my students work to share with the parents weekly and it helps everyone to stay connected. During distance learning I have used the Resource Hub to provide parents with helpful articles, recordings of me singing and telling stories and I have uploaded important documents that parents need to fill out.
So easy to use 5/5
By no ,ore
I simply love this app....
By AA 11
I can’t see any posts if I don’t access it from an email or a message. The app alone won’t open the page to posts. I deleted and re downloaded the app twice and still the same problem
Love it as a teacher and a parent 5/5
By E. Mc...
This app has lots of great options (online permission slips, easy conference sign ups [wish I could offer different times on different days, but I found a work around], posting files and photos etc). It takes playing with it a bit to truly get the most of everything it offers. I would like to be able to sort the messages in my feed or delete them off my feed (without deleting them off someone else’s feed) when they aren’t pertinent to me.
Our school of 600+, preK-8th grade, in-person and homeschool, students uses this app for all its communication and no one ever says we need to communicate better anymore!! It has truly revolutionized our communication, but we also have a communications director who works tirelessly to train new teachers and families when they get stuck. PS has the flexibility, technology and options to address almost any communication need a school could have, but until most of the community buys into it, you need someone who will be available to answer questions and concerns. No matter how intuitive technology is a lot of people still need the extra instruction (I was one of those people 3 years ago when we first started using PS). Now I love exploring what I can do with it.
Parents square 1/5
I am not happy with this app. I have multiple children and it doesn’t seem to think that those more than one teacher is necessarily to communicate with. I have tried to fix the problem by doing what it says but I still have 1 child on this thing and I can’t talk to the other teachers. Also it repeats the emails that the school or district sends I don’t need to see things twice on two platforms
Easy communication 5/5
So easy to get info from my three children’s schools!
By chair pillow table
It helps me get notified when there is events and reports from teachers! I can also see post by the district and how my students can access assignments!
