“It has been a positive step forward in communicating student learning. Teachers appreciate the dialogue it has created in looking at the new curriculum, and their assessment practices.” — Principal, Hazelgrove Elementary
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
Provide parents with a window into their child’s learning journey. FreshGrade enables stronger communication outside of the classroom, providing parents with greater awareness of their child’s development. Engaged parents become partners in their child’s education, supporting learning at home with specific feedback from teachers.
“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

Ratings and Reviews
I absolutely love this app! It is an incredible communication tool with families, and since it’s free, it is so accessible to many! My co-teachers and I use it daily for pictures, notices, to keep parents up to date on what we are learning, and so much more!!! Many teachers in my school use this and I always recommend it.
It has finally been fixed since the months of none of the important useful parts working (yay!). It is however slower than it used to be and crashes more frequently which is disappointing.
Great product- keep improving app
I like FreshGrade a lot. The app needs the functionality of being able to rotate to landscape view from portrait on an ipad so those of us who use a keyboard do not have to dis-attach our screen...
Love this product
Great product. Love that it is free. With screen would rotate to landscape view.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
