About SchoolPinnd

SchoolPinnd started with a very simple premise and an organic approach – how can we as parents be more informed and make our child’s school experience the best possible?  Let’s ask and learn from each other!

SchoolPinnd is a SMART and SIMPLE solution.  It is a safe and effective online community network meant to increase connectivity amongst parents, guardians and residents of YOUR school where you can freely exchange information and ideas in a coordinated and trusted environment, at your own pace, at your own time, with everybody.

SchoolPinnd is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive online platform for all your two-way conversations.  The platform supports centralized, searchable, threaded conversations under different categories which makes it very user friendly.

Vision and Core Beliefs

We created this company because we believe that school and education is the most important part of a child’s and parent’s life.  We performed extensive research and spoke to numerous parents.  Their overwhelming response forced us to dig deeper and finally create SchoolPinnd.  SchoolPinnd is the only complete and comprehensive platform of its kind.  Our goal is that each and every parent become a part of the conversation that matters the most.  We hope this platform becomes one of the most valuable resource for you as a parent, guardian, resident or anybody connected to a school community.  We believe in:

  • Engage and Educate.
  • Ask and learn from each other.
  • Communicate openly without judging.
  • Tap into the wealth of knowledge of our community.
  • Benefit folks who are new to the school by becoming a part of the school community.
  • Encourage parents to become real partners and informed leaders in their communities.

We have great schools, let’s make the experience even better, let’s make the most of this website!
