Testimonials

Judy Des Roches
Office Manager
King's-Edgehill School

“Reach syncing with our attendance system has made my job much easier! I love this feature. When groups (teams, classes etc.) leave during the day it simplifies attendance, no more emails and texting back and forth checking who is on the trip, it’s right there. I love it!”

Andrew Peeler
Dean of Residential Life and Student Activities
Asia Pacific International School

“Reach can be an intimidating pool of information to dive into. The Teach Reach modules really helped break down the platform into component parts which enabled me and my team to more easily learn and efficiently utilize the different functions with confidence. Two big thumbs up.”

Mike Mottola
Head of Boarding

“Reach has delivered for my boarding program as advertised. I’m spending fewer hours each week making lists and sending emails to keep track of leave requests and update attendance lists, which is now time that I am devoting to working with our student leadership team and my advisees. Hours in front of the computer each week has transformed into meaningful contact time with students. That is the power behind this highly efficient boarding management system!”
