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.
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.
