ParentSquare is a Santa Barbara based growing company that's changing the way schools and parents communicate every day. Sounds simple? We strive to keep it that way! Over 5000 schools and 4 million parents across the U.S. utilize our platform to stay informed and involved from the way they prefer to be notified - email, text, voice, web, app, social - to the ways they can interact with schools - forms, sign ups, payments, RSVPs, language translations, chat and more. We are constantly innovating to provide simpler, more intuitive tools that can be easily used by all educators and parents transcending the barriers of technology and language.
