The MySchoolAnywhere app allows you to search and connect with other families and faculty at your school, signup for volunteering activities, view the calendar and current announcements and sponsors.
Your PTO or PTA must be a subscriber to the MySchoolAnywhere service and access to the system must be granted to you by your school’s account administrator.
MySchoolAnywhere is a service provided to PTO and PTA organizations nationwide to help manage family and student contact information for the directory, volunteering and membership.
Minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Direct email, text & call from app stopped working
As a school directory & marketplace, myschoolanywhere is great. Recently however, the ability to send communications by email, text or phone directly from the app has stopped working. Typical remedial action (reset device, uninstall/reinstall app) has not restored operation.

Great School App
As the administrator of our school MSA account, I think this app is great. I’m also a parent at 2 different schools, and this app allows me to use the same login credentials for both schools, and remembers me so I don’t have to enter my password every time. MSA is user friendly for those of us who are not very tech savvy. I have been able to customize our home page, and add useful links like the attendance phone number, school calendar, and campus map. I like that you can search the directory, or use the filter to look at a particular grade for example. I also like that you can call or email straight from the app. MSA customer support have been great. They always respond promptly, and are always open to suggestions for improvements.
Missing basic usability elements
I'm so glad our school is moving to an online directory. But this app has a long way to improve before it will get strong scores.
When you use this app, you just want to search for people. But there is no search entry box on the home screen. When you do find your way to the search feature, you will notice that it does not start to pull up likely results as you type. It doesn't even execute the search when you hit return. You have to figure out that you tap the magnifying glass icon to execute the search - an action that would normally mean "start a new search."
I'm rooting for this app developer to deliver a great product. I would encourage them to start by taking a usability class.
