I'd like to start by saying thank you for considering Abacus as your next student information system.
To give you a better understanding of what Abacus is, I need to tell you its origin. Both my mother and wife are educators. One of the things they would often mention to me was how much they wished parents would play a more active role in their child's education. They would comment that the school would only see parents at report card time, which sadly, was too late for some students.
I figured if I could give administrators, faculty and parents a fast, simple way to check on a students progress throughout the year, that would be key to getting them to play the role they so desperately needed to.
Abacus doesn't aim to be all things to all people, but instead, it was designed to give all stakeholders accurate, timely information on the progress of a student so we can give that pupil the support that they need. Parents/guardians, students, teachers and administrators all have a role to play in the success of a child's education.
The best part about this approach is that the end results speak for themselves. In one case, the school saw a 150% increase in the number of CXC passes.
Imagine, ten minutes after morning bell has rung, an administrator can know exactly how many students were late or absent. Parents and administrators can get an accurate view of whats happening with a student using our integrated dashboard at any time they wish.
Give the demo a try and see what we have to offer. If you like what you see or would like to know more, feel free to send us a message using the contact form below.
Let us work together to give our children the best chance to succeed.
