Great communication tool for the whole school community


Communication in the school environment can be challenging. Parents might be limited to relying on notes from teachers that easily get lost or trying to get updated from other busy parents during the very distracting drop off and pick up times. Not every parent is able to make it to school wide and PTA meetings. Parents are busier than ever and need all the help they can get to help their child through school, stay up to date on school happenings and beter communicateand collaborate with school administration, teachers and other parents. HEARD has been an amazing tool to use with our school community. I feel so well informed about what is happening in the classroom and the school as a whole. There is a general newsfeed (with prioritized messages from administration and teachers so it is harder to get lost), but one can also select individual categories for posts about just that child's class, grade, extra-curricular club or sport, etc. From my phone, I can easily share pictures with other parents and teachers that I might take when I join in on a school activity or field trip. I can also create events and playdates and specify if I want to invite the whole school, vs. just my child's grade or class. HEARD has been amazing to use and I feel our whole school community is closer and more in synch because of it.

It's great having an APP that's a clearinghouse for all my kid's school communication. Notes from teachers, sports team schedules and organization, community event notices and newsletters, picture-sharing that gives us a glimpse into what's happening in class and at our aftercare program, ways to comment and keep the conversation going. It does a lot, really... everything we need to make sure parents, teachers, and our whole community's in the loop.

I really love having it all in one place, with intuitive tools making it easy to manage and customize alerts.

This app is a must for all schools and community groups!!


My family uses Heard for both my daughters schools, Girl Scouts, basketball team, soccer team and so much more. We honestly cannot live without Heard. It allows me to have immediate insight into my child’s day so that we can continue the learning at home. I honestly don’t know what we would do without this incredible tool as it has provided a powerful way for us to connect with other parents and educators and really stay close to what is happening in our daughters lives.
