Classrunner & You: Bridging the Gap

At Schoolrunner, we believe that every kid deserves access to teachers who understand them. We also believe that every teacher deserves access to tools that provide a holistic view of student achievement. A clear picture leads to increased understanding of the student, which in turn means enhanced teaching strategies, better student outcomes, and loads of precious time saved. Our mission is to help you embrace data and create a more informed classroom. We recognize the shared responsibility of a child’s success, where teachers, administrators, parents, and students all play an important role. We can provide you with visibility, leading to greater accountability.

Our kids are well aware of the power of Schoolrunner … The conversation is no longer ‘I didn’t know’. This allows us to get to the root of a problem or know what is working with input from our students.” Gillian Quinn-Pineda, Founding School Leader, KIPP Northeast College Prep


Schoolrunner is a functional and straightforward student achievement engine. We help teachers gain valuable insight into their students before they even walk into the classroom. Within just one page, teachers can make changes to attendance and behavior, review grades, and communicate home. No computer nearby? No problem! All these activities can also be easily completed via our mobile app. Schoolrunner eliminates the need to access multiple tools to assess and record information. Let us become your one-stop shop for academic, attendance, behavior, and communication details.

I love Schoolrunner and I really like the mobile app. It makes parent phone calls and behavior tracking so much easier on the fly!” Naina Gonsalves, Reading Teacher, Austin Achieve

“Having the credentials to log in themselves has transformed the way that kids are engaged in their own education. Prior to having Schoolrunner, grades were kind of a nebulous thing … kids weren’t exactly sure what they were graded on, how to make up their grades, or what their grades even were. Once we started routinely using progress reports, Scholar Slips with grades on them, and scholar credentials, kids became aware of their performance and now take action to get the highest grades that they can.” Evan Stoudt, New Orleans Teacher of the Year (2015), Sci Academy

We know the pressures involved in being evidence-based, and we also know the software fatigue teachers can experience to get there.

Our goal is to empower teachers, schools, students, and parents through easy access and a common understanding of what impacts students achievement. Let us make your data work for you.
