“Authenticating”The first few times I’ve used the app there weren’t any issues with it. I loved being able to see my grades quickly instead of going into a browser and going through all of the school webpages to get to them. Now I can’t even check my grades with the app. It’ll log me out and I’ll have to log back in, so when it says “authenticating” while loading my page, I’m sitting there waiting forever and it just doesn’t load. I left the app open for half an hour and it didn’t even give me an error message. It would only show “authenticating”. I haven’t been able to log back in ever since. I’m not sure if it’s just my internet, but it also did this back when I was in person at school and when online school started. Thank you for the app, though. It was great while it lasted..Version: 2.9.2

Benhouselog sent meDelete this app.Version: 2.8.1

Won’t let me log inOk so I really like the app set up and it used to give me very easy access to my grades but since school has started back and I have began going to this app to look at my grades it makes me re log in which isn’t as big of a problem as it could be the main issue I am having is after I log in it says authenticating and shows a loading thing and it never loads I have left my phone sitting for over 10 minutes before and it still won’t allow me to login so the app was a great thing to have but it’s to the point know it’s just as easy to go into the web and search for it because hadethe time I can’t log in. I really hope you guys can fix this issue because it is the only reason I’m not giving it all 5 stars..Version: 2.9.1

Bad do not getBad.Version: 2.8.1

Helpful but...The app is great allowing parents and students to keep track of grades. However I am giving it 3 stars due to the complexity of the username/password issues we have had. I always save my usernames and passwords to a locked file. The app on my phone is sending me alerts daily but when I click on them I have to login again. Each time it tells me my password is wrong even when it stores it. The recover password is a complex process often saying some sort of error not letting you login so you go through the process again only to find out it did save your password and you must choose another new one. So stay logged in or lose 15min of your day. Keep in mind you will have to change your password often as well. Just a heads up to users out there..Version: 2.5.0

Powerschool is not idealBruh powerschool made me fail math. Tf u mean i gotta do 20-2 again?! Wack.Version: 2.9.0

Log-In IssueOverall, I like the format of the app and how easy it is to access information like attendance, late assignments, etc. However, every time I go to access PowerSchool, it makes me login at least twice. Every time I open the app to check my grade, I have to login again and this has happened to me when I check my grades, and then go back to check an assignment 15 minutes later. Furthermore, not only do I have to login more than once every time I open the app, but also the time it takes to “authenticate” the information after I login is ridiculous. The contents of the app are great, I just want to be able to access them easily. There’s no point having the app when loving in through browser takes less time and effort.Version: 2.6.0

App Update is PREMATUREIt seems that Powerschool’s App was recently updated leaving out the capability to do some pretty important things....such as add a new student to an existing account. This may not be such an issue if the instructions were readily available of how to accomplish this on the new updated app. However, when trying to add a new student to an existing account this year I was met with the aforementioned issue. When I googled this issue I found instructions on how to accomplish this task on the OLD version of the app! When updating the app I feel it is necessary to also update the help info!....Also, a good update makes tasks easier...not more difficult! It is also almost impossible to leave this review! I can’t even type it on the same screen...I had to type this review through notes on my ipad then copy and paste!.Version: 2.9.1

PowerSchool is stealing our dataPowerSchool is a foreign company (here in Canada at least) that is stealing our data and selling it to American third-party companies. This, combined with the fact that the interface is absolute garbage, makes for an untrustworthy, confusing, and downright unnecessary way to manage students’ grades and/or marks. The online payment system doesn’t work at all, and timetables organized by PowerSchool are very messed up. PowerSchool makes life more complicated. Boycott PowerSchool..Version: 2.6.0

STINKSWho here uses this during the school closure for COVID-19? Well I do, and I’m beyond disgusted. Every single person, at least six times a day and I’m not exaggerating gets an image of a cat saying “we’re a bit tangled up”. Here’s what it is translated, PowerSchool and it’s developers are too lazy to fix a simple running issue. Their app is supposed to be able to work smoothly for schools! But when my teacher has to make up new plans on your rival website, “google classroom” because they aren’t doing enough to fix it, you have officially lost one client. Now look at the big picture - How many teachers use this app and website? You can’t even keep count. Now imagine them leaving this website and finding a better, faster, and more beneficial one. You’re company is going to die. To the developers, I swear, you are digging your websites own grave. Fix it and step up..Version: 2.8.1

GradesFor some reason I can’t see my current grade but other people can.Version: 2.9.2

Fix Your AppI'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..Version: 2.6.0

Accessibility for families with multiple school systems missingI have used PowerSchool for several years. I have three children and until last year I was able to view all of their info on the app in a snap. Now that my oldest is in high school, and not in the same district I cannot access his info through the app at all. I have to go online to his school website to access his power school info. PowerSchool, surely you can fix this and allow the app to support multiple district codes. Put the district codes in the student profiles so parents don’t have to choose which child they can view through the app and which child they have to log in through other means..Version: 2.7.0

Helpful but very annoying.Although it may seem this rating is harsh, the process to log in every single time you want to open this app is very annoying. I like to check PowerSchool often to see how my progress is and in each class. When I heard about the PowerSchool app I was thrilled. In order to escape from the dreadful error messages for not using PowerSchool for a certain extent of time, I downloaded this app. I was very disappointed because of the numerous times I would quickly check my grades and research more in depth half an hour later only to find I needed to log in again. To the devs, please fix these problems. It is absolutely unnecessary to log in every time you want to use the app. Such “security precautions” are unacceptable. In the meantime I will use the more convenient PowerSchool which can be found by searching it up in safari(google chrome etc.)..Version: 2.6.0

PowerSchool is data-mining youPowerSchool is data-mining you for your data to sell to 3rd party foreign companies Anyone who decompiles the application will come to the same conclusion. They are taking away our rights we have as Canadian citizens, Do not use this application..Version: 2.9.2

It is what it isIt isss what it issss @benhouselog.Version: 2.8.1

Fix the watch appThere’s one big problem I have with this app, but it’s not on the iPhone. Instead, it’s on the watch app, which has one major flaw, that being that your grades only update when they are updated on the phone. This is a major annoyance as I’m not allowed to use my phone in school, making my watch the most convenient way of checking my grades if not for the updating problem. I guess they might do this to not drain battery, but if the watch is connected to the phone or WiFi, it shouldn’t even be a problem (even on cellular, it won’t drain it more than any other app). If the devs for the watch app see this review, I hope they’ll take it into consideration..Version: 2.7.1

FlawsThis is a good way to see your grades because it is accessible on your computer and on your phone. However, the grades do not update quickly and this causes my parents to get upset often. This has affected me because I have become frustrated. This is not the only app with flaws. Google Classroom has its flaws too. When I submit my work, it does not go through and teachers mark my work as missing. They should update PowerSchool so every time you check your grades, they are up to date. Google classroom should also update so teachers can get instant notifications on mobile or computer when a student submits his/her work. This way, a difference would be made in everybody’s life..Version: 2.9.2

Limited usefulness.It’d of been nice to be able to pay fees on here..Version: 2.9.2

I’ve just stopped using this.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..Version: 2.8.1

Stop snitchin powerschoolHey queen i just wanted to let you know that you’re snitchin on me and letting my parents know how much of a disappointment i am!! not cool babe. would be zero but i couldn’t give a review #cancelpowerschool 🙈💅🏻✨😌😘.Version: 2.9.2

It does its job...but the new update...🥴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!!.Version: 2.9.0

Emails and current assignmentsSome of the issues that I don’t like about it is that it does not allow a copy of the emails you send to a teacher and with having short term messages loss I like to keep a copy of the emails. They taught me in the Air Force to always keep a paper trail. The application does not keep up to date all the assignments. For example it may be good with keeping up with the grades from Canvas but not in AR assignments. Also some of the answers on the quizzes are wrong and need to be fix for instance an example if congruent triangles has only one correct answer and the question asks for two answers when there is only one correct one. When you answer the question with the correct answer it is counted wrong. Who are writing these questions with the wrong answers or there is more than one correct answer? It is teaching our students that it is okay to choose a wrong answer and it will be right. WRONG!.Version: 2.9.1

Lots of Problems!So I am a student gibbing this a one star because it always notifies me when I get a new grade but then I have to login again. Also every time I go it I have to sync it about 5 times before I get my GPA and my grades updated. Lastly I’m not sure if it is a problem with my district or with the app but it says I have 4 classes at the same time even though they are C1 and C6 at the same time. Please fix this put district takes so long to change things so I will be out of the school by the time oh district gets something done. You need to update your app a lot and get it to work better than the website (which is the reason for having the app) because so many kids need this app to work so they can be successful in school!.Version: 2.6.0

A stick has a better grading system than this.I don’t know how anyone, including students, teachers, etc. can even have the smallest cell in their brain to agree why this app is good. The algorithm first of all. Lets say If all goes well I’ll get a 100% on my next math test. I then get a 99% on my next math test. My Gpa originally was 100%, now my gpa re-created 1940s Japan. If there was a way to fix the algorithm by choosing to up the students grade at a certain level. (Meaning that if a student got a 100% on their last test and the student then gets a 99% on the current test then their grade depending on the number the teacher chose will decide if the grade for the subject will go up or down) Second, homework and classwork should each be the same amount of point loss. This can be controlled but usually the algorithm counts it as either higher or lower, meaning there is a bug. Fix the app because I don’t want to be a looser to my successful family..Version: 2.8.1

Very addictiveSo additive that everyone I know checks it constantly usually makes us sweat a lot sometimes we cry.Version: 2.9.1

Good Idea, Poor DeliveryThis app is useful except for the times it isn’t. Some teachers will post assignments before they’re even graded so they’ll show up as an F or 0. Not a big deal when they finally plug in the scores, but in the meantime, my son has to deal with me harassing him over poor grades only to find out that wasn’t his grade. Another issue is the s1/s2, q1/q2/q3/q4 setup. I still don’t understand which grade is the final grade. I assume it should be the 18-19 grades but the numbers don’t add up. What ever happened to a simple “grade per quarter” system? Why not use a system that just says “here is your total grade today”? Why is it so complicated? Another issue is some classes show up multiple times under “Class Overview” and have different grades posted. Uh... what? Completely confusing. This app is useful for giving you a basic idea of where grades are, but you can’t rely on it to be accurate and definitely not a standalone resource. It could be said it’s useless given that you have to follow up with teachers to verify grades anyway....Version: 2.7.0

Mysterious NotificationsThe school will update my child’s grades in this app and I will get notifications of the changes.... for some reason this app presumes that the kids are morons and the grade changes begin at an F and then climb as the teachers make adjustments. The actual frustrating part of this app, tho, is that the notifications will come across the Notification Center and then when you go to the app to view things...... nothing. No notifications to follow in-app plus the Notification Center clears and you can’t look back. So the changes are made and you come to look things over.... but have no clue where to look. And my vestment in this app is far from enough for me to spend the time to learn my way around it... I downloaded a required app for my kid’s school.... it’s the school’s app and responsibility to make sure they communicate correctly, but the app is hampering everything by simply being confusing and in the way. It needs a lot of work to become more “parent friendly”..Version: 2.9.2

Helpful, but can be annoying at timesAs 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..Version: 2.8.1
