School Finder Transforming the Way Schools Share Information
to Help Parents Make Smarter Choices

School Finder, Parent Helper

The Smart Choice School Finder Helps Parents Find the Right Schools for their Children.

The Smart Choice School Finder solution is a guided school search tool that assists parents as they explore school options based on their child’s interests, needs and school proximity to their home address. It allows parents to browse, find and compare schools they are interested in. As they explore, they can create a “favorites” list to add schools they like. Parents can also select schools individually or use their “favorites” list to apply to or enroll in their list of schools once their search is complete.

Innovating School Choice through School Search

The School Finder gives schools and districts the ability to effectively promote their schools and programs while giving parents powerful tools to explore and find the best schools for their children.

The tool is integral with the Smart Choice advanced admissions and school choice platform and it further simplifies the application and enrollment processes for parents and district administrators.

The School Finder is a great new tool that helps schools and districts create more equity and fairness in their school choice programs by proving more information on schools, offering innovative new search features, comparative tools and integration with school choice application and enrollment processes.
