  • Helpful, but can be annoying at times

    By Haritha 🥰
    As a student, my school and grades RUN on PowerSchool, so it’s helpful to always have the app on my phone so I can check my grades anytime. Personally, I think there’s nothing spectacular about this app that gets it 5 stars, but is a problem that I find to be very aggravating at times. Mainly, when my grades are updated, I get the notification, but on the app, they are not actually updated, no matter how many times I refresh. I normally have to wait a long time for this to happen, or I just log on to my computer to check my grades (they are updated immediately on there). I would also recommend that instead of notifying us when our letter grade changes, we get notified when the actual percentage changes (e.g. “Your grade is Pre-Calculus H is now 95”). I also wish this app was less glitchy, updated quickly, AND we had access to see our grade history from previous years, as I can only see this on my computer as of now. Plus, it would be great if our GPA, shown on the home screen also updated with our grades for that quarter/trimester/semester, and not keep showing the GPA from the LAST term. Other than that, I do appreciate the convenience of checking my grades and attendance on my phone, but this app has a LONG way to go.
  • it does its job...but the new update...🥴

    By kobra3
    I really liked using the PowerSchool app for school being able to rearrange the way I saw my GPA, recent assignments graded, and overall class scores etc. I also really liked the blue and white theme—as I’ve gone through school I’ve associated certain classes with certain colors and now this new update has chosen random colors for all of my classes. Also another thing is I like my grades to be private and now the letter grade for each class is HUGE! So prying eyes are most likely going to be able to see my grades. And my GPA is super tiny now. Weird. Also another annoying thing about this app is that it doesn’t show how your teachers weigh their grading (if like a class was 70% tests and quizzes & 30% class work) Oh one last thing: you can’t change your little profile photo. It sticks with you school photo (which 9 times out of 10 looks really awful.) You are the only person who sees this picture so why not let us change it to a picture we like better? Like I said the app works great other than the new color theme/update. There are a few things that bother me but it’s still doing it’s job: showing you your grades etc. Hope this helps!!
  • I’ve just stopped using this.

    By skyebird4
    This app is a EXCELLENT idea, quick access to your grades without dealing with opening your browser, however this app does not work as promised. Honestly i’ve just stopped using it altogether, I hope that this will get an update to fix all its errors but until then it’s just gonna stay in a folder on my phone. Everyone complains about how you must login several times to see your grades but that is the least of my concerns. For me I can’t even access them anymore. I used to login twice and see grades that are very out of date and a GPA that didn’t change with the fluctuations in my grades. Now I cant see anything. Don’t get me wrong, I am able to get notifications when a teacher puts a new grade into the grade book but when I attempt to login to see them I only see the word “Authenticating” and a spinning wheel. Nothing, i’ve waited 30 minutes before and nothing has happened. I’m not sure if that applies to everyone but from peers i’ve talked to they’ve just resorted to signing in through a browser like me. Powerschool please fix your app, we understand that the multiple logins can be for our safety but not being able to access it at all is ridiculous.
  • Fix Your App

    By I hit 103!!!
    I've been using PowerSchool Mobile for about 2 years now, and ever since I first opened the app, it's had serious issues. For starters, I have to sign in not once, but twice to check my grades. This alone wouldn't be such a large issue if it didn't take nearly a minute for the page to refresh to even allow you to sign in for a second time. I remember at the start of the 3rd quarter of last school year, the app had a massive malfunction, affecting all those attending my school at the time. We were left unable to check our grades for nearly a week. As I am typing this, the app again is experiencing difficulties, as notifications appear to be turned off all across campus. I checked my settings, and nothing seems to be preventing notifications from coming through. I've even talked to my peers about this concern, and it appears to again, be a school-wide issue. The app itself is a great concept, allowing students to check grades on the go. However, with so many issues and new ones popping up every other week, it just seems like little care and effort is put into PowerSchool Mobile.
  • Pretty Good App but It needs a few more Features

    By $Dubey123$
    This app is pretty good for the current online environment in which it is hard to see my family's grades. But I think it can be given a few more features to excel in the hybrid and online schooling environment. The first thing they could add is form support for iPad and iPhone. Doing the forms on an iPad is much more convenient then having to open the desktop version whenever you want to fill a form. This app can succeed in today's market but it needs to be a lot more like the website. The Website offers many more features that are of use to parents than the iPad. Previously I just used it to check my family's grade, but now since my school has integrated more with PowerSchool more I have found myself resorting to my desktop more. Devs if you are reading this, please make the app more like the website.
  • A real review

    By Supermeegaawesome
    Okay so how useful this app is depends on district involvement. The only thing my district uses through PowerSchool is grades and attendance. Not the lunch or schedule or calendar or anything. This app is pretty useful but I turned in one assignment late and it was under the late tab alllll year. Like seriously I turned it in it got graded it wouldn’t leave the late tab. Sometimes the faults in this app is the teachers fault like wrong grades or wrong icons so I can’t be mad at that. I have noticed you can do a lot more on the computer than phone with powerschool. You have all the different tabs like a+ signing up for classes and more and on app you have none sooo yeah it’s a helpful useful app with a couple annoying imperfections but overall it’s not like there’s much of an alternative but it’s a good quality app and easy to navigate.
  • Its okay

    By Jxsmine H.
    I love this app because it helped me see my grades quickly and easily. Although sometimes my grades would not be shown when updated which makes me have to sign in and out I still liked the old update better. It was clearer to see my grades. Some may want to have privacy about grades since they don’t want people knowing their business but for me it was quick and easy. I would use this in class to quickly see my grades for the class and then be able to know whether or not a assignment would put me down a lot or bring me up. Also the colors I really did like the old white background with the black text but I don’t know how I feel about this one. I really hope you can add some settings where you can choose a display rather then having a display I’m not comfortable with or doesn’t work with me.
  • The best SIS

    By abt928
    To be honest, I don't know where all of these negative reviews are coming from. I've used a lot of different grade systems at different schools and Powerschool is by far the most effective. The new schedule feature is something that is SO convenient with my schedule at school, and it has replaced the annoying calendar on the back of my lanyard. Powerschool should continue to innovate and expand the apps functionality to accommodate new grading systems, and reduce its contracting price and market more heavily so that more schools adopt this system, because it will increase students overall effort and attendance. Seeing the grades on this app is so convenient and the app itself doesn't look like it came out 5 years ago, the user interface is very good and although it can use a few aesthetic changes, it's super effective.
  • Grrrr

    By αя¢αиє ℓσνєя
    Recently whenever I try to check my grades it will not allow me to log in at all. And I’ve been using the app for about three years. But I believe that the app is a huge help when I need to check my grades but it is very frustrating when my parents check my grades because I’m always hounded on what I have and have not turned in. While at times I can understand why having parents checking grades can be useful, being a high school student I feel as though I don’t get any freedom because it is so simple for a parent to check my grades. Along with the fact that there is what I guess would be considered an email option which emails parents when the students grades drop past a certain point.
  • Life changing for parents who want to be more involved in their kids schooling

    By Elmore937
    Before downloading this app, the usually conversation between my child and I were fairly basic; “hey baby, how was school?” Followed by; “Do you have homework?”. This app allows you to check assignments and grades on the fly. My daughter failed to turn in a piece of homework and I received a notification in the middle of the afternoon through the app the her assignment was missing. When she got home, we were able to figure out what it was and get it taken care of. I’m guessing this all comes down to the school and the teachers following SOP’s and the app working properly. If there are any parents out there considering this app, give it a shot. You will not be disappointed.
