Here's what users are saying:

“We initially purchased Schoolzilla as a sustainable solution for visualizing our data and quickly realized it is so much more… In a world overwhelmed with data, Schoolzilla provides a solution that drives our ability to make informed decisions. We are able to efficiently integrate information from many sources in ways that are understandable and usable for nearly every person in our organization. From secretaries, teachers, and administrators, Schoolzilla has become the one-stop shop where we access data in order to improve our district in measurable terms.”

—Dr. Jessica Beller, Director of Instructional Services at Montrose County School District

 “Schoolzilla has enhanced our data work immeasurably. Our partnership with Schoolzilla has allowed us to provide real-time dashboards and analyses to our school leaders and staff. We used to build these reports by hand, using many different data sources. Now we have a centralized, live dashboarding platform.”

—Edmund Han, Director of Data and Analytics at KIPP DC

“We did a really thorough search and Schoolzilla just blew everyone away—their knowledge and even, really, wisdom, on how education works—no one else really had an equity lens or knew which data sources matter and which ones don’t.”

—Dr. Luke Neff, Director of Instructional Technology at Newberg Public Schools
