I've been using PowerSchool Mobile for about 2 years now, and ever since I first opened the app, it's had serious issues. For starters, I have to sign in not once, but twice to check my grades. This alone wouldn't be such a large issue if it didn't take nearly a minute for the page to refresh to even allow you to sign in for a second time. I remember at the start of the 3rd quarter of last school year, the app had a massive malfunction, affecting all those attending my school at the time. We were left unable to check our grades for nearly a week. As I am typing this, the app again is experiencing difficulties, as notifications appear to be turned off all across campus. I checked my settings, and nothing seems to be preventing notifications from coming through. I've even talked to my peers about this concern, and it appears to again, be a school-wide issue. The app itself is a great concept, allowing students to check grades on the go. However, with so many issues and new ones popping up every other week, it just seems like little care and effort is put into PowerSchool Mobile.
I love this app my grades are even better than they are before or is it just because I’m amazing is my I don’t know but this app is amazing I just take me a new one to two seconds to update your grades but otherwise it’s a very good app and you can see your GPA and like if you have missing assignments late assignments or anything like that or how to get your grade up I think this app is a very good another reason is because because it has like this like keto friendly type of style so kids don’t get confused or frustrated I actually have fun checking their grades and what else I like about it is they have like have announcements so I know if schools canceled or if there’s new activities or any clubs that are canceled so I think this ad is very good and you should very definitely get it it helps me more than any add anything because are used to fail in school before I found this app to help me keep my grade that I was doing amazingNot only was I overage achieving I’m not over age I don’t know why I love that I am sober how many pages each
To be honest, I don't know where all of these negative reviews are coming from. I've used a lot of different grade systems at different schools and Powerschool is by far the most effective. The new schedule feature is something that is SO convenient with my schedule at school, and it has replaced the annoying calendar on the back of my lanyard. Powerschool should continue to innovate and expand the apps functionality to accommodate new grading systems, and reduce its contracting price and market more heavily so that more schools adopt this system, because it will increase students overall effort and attendance. Seeing the grades on this app is so convenient and the app itself doesn't look like it came out 5 years ago, the user interface is very good and although it can use a few aesthetic changes, it's super effective.
PowerSchool has been a very helpful app to keep up with all my grades. You can log on from more than one device, such as your phone, if you have the app, or your computer. As long as I have my phone it shows me my grades and it updates them automatically soon as one is put in. More than one person can have the app too. My parents look at it to make sure I’m keeping up. It shows you how many absences you have had, it also shows you the reviews your teacher gives you after the quarter of school. You can also see grades from previous classes you had and the ones you will have coming up. It shows you the grade of each individual assignment and any comments your teacher had about it.
My son likes to say that he forgot what homework assignments he has and always forgets. But this app keeps him on track and tells us exactly what needs to be done. Also the teachers are so awesome with updating the grades as they go so everything is clear and if you ever have a question, you can reach out to a student or email the teacher and there right there to help with an assignment. This is probably the best App that doesn’t only help our son but helps us as parents to also be able to watch his GPA grow since the GPA is always posted. Love that we can see his grades daily, help him when he needs help and not get surprises when reports cards come out months later. I’m definitely loving the digital age.
