FreshGrade for Parents gives you a virtual window into the classroom, providing visibility into your child’s academic progress. View your child’s full portfolio, make comments on posted learning moments, and collaborate with his or her teacher on how you can support your child’s learning.

This app is supplementary to the FreshGrade Teacher app, which allows the teacher to capture rich media artifacts of student learning as it happens — through pictures, videos, audio recordings, links, documents and anecdotal notes. Teachers can share student portfolios, and easily send reminders home.

"FreshGrade forms a continuous glimpse into each child's progress that parents and students can share." — Sir Ken Robinson, Author, Creative Schools.

FreshGrade creates meaningful communication and increases engagement between teachers, students and parents. Using the FreshGrade Parent App and FreshGrade Student App, students and parents have secure access to view, comment and upload additional artifacts to the student’s portfolio. The FreshGrade suite of applications features student portfolios, custom assessment tools, custom activities/assignments with curriculum alignment and classroom announcements.

• Get a window into the classroom through your child’s secure portfolio
• See what your child is learning through photos, videos, audio recordings, and notes
• Stay up-to-date with student-specific information and class-wide announcements
• No in-app purchases, third-party advertising or data sharing

Enabling Teachers
Teachers can communicate using digital portfolios on the go, recording artifacts of learning, and uploading them directly to student portfolios.

“It has been a positive step forward in communicating student learning. Teachers appreciate the dialog it has created in looking at the new curriculum, and their assessment practices.” — Principal, Hazelgrove Elementary

Empowering Students
Capturing activities inside and out of the classroom has never been easier, putting control of continuous learning in the hands of students and their stakeholders. Teachers have noticed that as a result of using FreshGrade, their students take a greater ownership of their learning.

“Kids thrive on ownership. They love to access their portfolios, read teacher and parent comments, and know that they can have a say in their learning.” — Principal, Cambridge Elementary

Engaging Parents
FreshGrade enables stronger communication outside of the classroom, providing parents with greater awareness of their child’s development.

“Parents have been very excited about knowing and being more aware of the learning that occurs. They are better able to support learning at home with the specific feedback from teachers.” — Principal, Dogwood Elementary

Good app. Log in not so easy


Love seeing my kids stuff so quickly and easily biggest complaint would be that it logs me out each time, and have to re-log in. :( a little frustrating but that is my only complaint.

Great App


Love that I can see what going on with my kids in school. This is a fantastic idea. Only down side is that I do get notifications of new content, but I have to scroll thru all the posts to find it. Should have some way to identify new posts, comments, etc.

Great app, needs a bug fix since new software update


Love this app but since I updated my software to IOS 11.1.1 it crashes/closes each time I go to save my children’s photos in their portfolio. Please fix this, it wasn’t an issue before.
