  • Admissions tracking is possible from initial inquiry all the way to enrollment
  • ParentsWeb enables parents to access school information easily from a desktop or phone app
  • FACTS customer service is outstanding. It is easy to either call or chat, and questions are researched and answered fully.
  • It would be helpful to have all student demographic information on one screen as it was in a previous version. The new version is quite a learning curve, but there is support available which is consistently helpful.
FACTS is well suited to a school that has multiple departments needing to access the same information. A change I make in Admissions is then seen by our Business Director, our Registrar, and the teachers. It seems to be most effective when it is used across departments. I can't think of a school scenario where FACTS would be deemed inappropriate. Even a small school would benefit from the ability to have everything in one place for those who interact with students and parents.

We used FACTS for parent communication regarding grades, performance, behavior, and other student issues. It also allowed us to post fun things such as interactive assignments and projects, photos of class projects, and other materials that parents, students, and stakeholders used regularly. FACTS was helpful to our independent school in keeping international parents and others informed.
  • Student Grade Communication
  • Parent alerts and updates
  • Clear, user-friendly interface
  • It could use more space for uploading classroom media.
  • It could lessen the number of new open windows or frames for various functions that can be done on the same screen.
  • It could incorporate more social-media like tools to make it more native for students and parents.
If you are an independent school seeking a tool that will communicate grades and other performance data well, FACTS will do that, and do it well. It is very smooth and has less "clunky-ness" than competitor products. This software is less appropriate for non-classroom business purposes. I cannot imagine that a tutoring service, for example, would necessarily benefit from its functionality, given that students there are usually handled one-on-one.
