    As both a parentteacher and licensed real estate agent I understand how to read school data and the importance of it The Great Schools application is both a game changer and life saver for people like me or anyone who cares about quality education                 The Best Application for Concerned Parents and Teachers
    Great app but needs to update the schools info where I live              App Review
    Before moving this app worked perfectly and as expected It was simple and easy to use After moving a couple of states away when I search for schools the result is always could not find any schools in the area I know there are though I see them as I drive down the street I think all my issues are just a matter of location but before I moved this app was great Now not so much        It used to work
    Doesnt remember filter choices or locations Complains every time i open it because I dont let it know my current location Doesnt have nearly as much info about schools as the website        Annoying to use
    Horrible app I type in my location it says there are no schools found I let the app use my location and it still says no schools found I use my zip code and guess what no schools found So I uninstalled it     Frustrated
    Great app                 Great app
    Use this app to find a city that had excellent school ratings for my children App works great                 A
    Great app Im looking for a school for my daughter now so its helpfulWhen I check a school in the list and go back to the main list of schools it takes me back to the begining of the list not to where I stopped so its hard                 Great app
    Saved a lot of time when looking for schools                 Excellent app
    Just downloaded the App hoping to get to work finding a good school district for our next move but the app says no schools found Ive looked in dozens of cities and states and get zero results disappointing appnot sure whats wrong     Doesnt Find Any Schools
    Terrible front end only tool Provides only a fraction of info as site but also gives wrong info ie there are no stats for a school whereas there are full stats available on the mobile website Search filter resets every time you move location at all Also no log in function to synch my website and app activity Lousy     You just end up on the website anyway
    Love it                 Great App
    After creating a filter then clicking redo search in this area it will completely reset filter to default           Bug with redo search
    Great info but the search and filter features need help When you apply the filters it loses what you selected if you redo your search in another or larger area So frustrating to have to keep setting           Helpful but flaky
    This is really good app mainly for the new to Dallasplano                 Very helpful app
    I would give this app a negative if I could I have 4 schools less than 2 miles from my house and the app said there are no schools near me     DONT INSTALL Doesnt work at all
    No schools found I click on show All Nearby Schools and nothing     Simply does not work
    I just got the app and it keeps on crashing     Expected better
    This is an awesome app I love reading the reviews from parents students and even teachers              Great app
    The app used to work perfectly fine now when you try to search schools in a certain area it says no schools found I also had about 10 schools save in my schools but now nothings there This used to be a great app before all this        Useless
    Once you save a school it saves it then it erase it Please fix ASAP           SAVE SCHOOLS
    Every time you reset the map area you lose your filters How could they think this app was ready for release     Useless
    Getting ready to move And I use this app all the time to find GreatSchools for my children This app will help me determine where I will be moving              Great resource
    When I first downloaded it it worked OK It wouldnt always find a school even though there were plenty in the area I chose Every time you move the area you have to redo your settings because it deletes them I deleted the app and reinstalled and now its not finding any schools at all Fix the app people        Doesnt work
    I was hoping to be great schools app allow me access to some of the better features of the website Being map based I expected it to incorporate things like school district and zone boundaries bit it does not Negative complaints about the app from two years ago are still present such as needing to tap a button to research and losing filters More importantly map view info of schools changes with map refreshing and if overlooked provides false great schools community ratings Lastly there are no external links for additional info that is absent from the app I could go on but as I already uninstalled the app since it didnt meet my needs it seems like a waste of my time For most people I would recommend skipping the app and using the full website I would only recommend the app to those who want to quickly find schools without more info such as realtors or limited bandwidth        Disappointing
    It just doesnt find any schools in my area or surrounding areasHave to use the website for any information     App doesnt work
    More than excellent                 More than excellent
    The only thing I would suggest would be to update the schools in the area That way the APP would include all the private schools alternative schools and academies                 So far so good
    Great app to help parents              So Helpful
    It should show more empirical data such as student to teacher ratios average classroom size eg 15 students per classroom what schools most students matriculated to     More Data please
    There needs to be an iPad version and more of the features from the web site such as the boundary tool need to be added           Great App but
    I tried many times and it doesnt work in Seattle Area of WA state Sorry can not give 5 stars     Doesnt work in seattle area
    This app looks good and is easy to use but the data is from 2012 This is very misleading and detrimental if youre researching schools for 2014 As an example one school had test scores of english 64 and math 79 When you click more scores and go to the website these scores become english 40 and math 40 Until an update is available youll be better served using the website           Needs Updating
    Id rate higher if you could filter searches by distance           Filter by distance
    Not home purchases arent always based 100 on schools the schools in an area tend to have significant influence in family relocation This app is great for families relocating to unfamiliar areas due to job transfer etc the only recommendation I have is to add the ability to select more than one type of school at a time for those that have children at various ages levels of school                 Great for house hunting
    I see the same problems I have with the app reflected in other reviews that are 3 years old The filters need resetting every time you move to a different area of the screen no info listed for many of the schools where there is info online on the full site frustration over having to hit search each time I want to check out a different area on the map Clunky app     Info useful app poorly designed
    Love the map with the bubbles that show the ratings Very helpful Easy to use                 Better than the website
    Both the app and website dont work on iPhone iPad and PC Please fix     Doesnt work
    Cant filter and select district Can do only eitherDoesnt show boundary Cant search by address Dont know why they built a useless app Use the website     Useless compared to the website
    Cant access this app to find schools in another state where we are trying to find a home It only wants to find schools nearby which doesnt help me at all Even tried turning off location services to force it to look where I typed in Keeps saying cant find schools Works fine online on my computer but the app is crap on my phone Not convenient at all     Mom
    Its a great app if you want to decided were to live n what schools are good on your area                 Great app
    For anyone looking to review schools before your child is going to transition at any agethis app is very helpful I also have had to move several times with my job and found this app a great resource to find the right school for my kids The only thing I wish was that this app showed the extra curricular activities etc for each school as well Thank you all in advance for this app              I love this app
    This is a good app for trying to figure what school to go to                 Good app
    I love this app except that the only thing I didnt like was the rating on Kilmer E school because that is the most awful school ever but over all the app is really good                 School finder review
    Its not showing any school rankings The Chicagoland area is not working Not sure if it is affecting others Please fix it     App doesnt work
    This app has relevant reviews that are actually comparable to my experiences with the schools But who is writing the reviews You cant give reviews yourself from this app so I dont trust it     Missing function
    This is a good app using it for my house hunt Needs some polish to get 5 stars For example the app should remember your filter settings once you change them instead if having to reinput them after every search Aside from minor issuesapp does what you would expect very well              Very Good App
    Greatschools changed their rating system to be more improvement based instead of just rating all the schools fairly How dumb     Least improved app
    Very helpful app                 Great Schools is great
    Awesome app Some schools are listed on the map incorrectly or missing all together Other than that love it                 Great schools
