GreatSchools, a national education nonprofit, empowers parents to improve educational opportunity for their children. It offers information about the quality of schools gathered from federal, state, and local governments, and from parents, students, and teachers. The organization wanted to help parents search for schools by location, get vital information about them and compare them to one another.
- Nearly half of all American parents read report cards and parent reviews of schools on GreatSchools.org to help match their children with the best schools.
- National and local advocacy groups use the site to highlight educational inequalities in different areas and push for better schools for all children.
- Families use GreatSchools.org to assess schools when moving to a new area.
