"During COVID, when we were not allowing any parents into the building, brightwheel provided a meaningful connection between parents, the school, the teachers and the students!"

"This app has made my life so much easier as a teacher. The instant messaging between my parents is the best thing ever. I don't have to call every single parent anymore. Posting notes, pictures and messages couldn't be easier"
