Improved Student Performance

No D’s or F’s for the first time in 12 years! Positive results directly related to Jupiter. Wow!
Allison Castner
Faith Baptist Schools, CA

We love your program and what it has done for our district. In fact, Jupiter was the very first item of this years’ “successes”!
Dee Sillanpaa
Queen Creek Unified, AZ

This has streamlined grading significantly, and I even find my students write more extensively using Juno than they do by hand.
Daniel Clark
Grand Blanc High School, MI

I’m loving the discussion forums. I’m amazed how many students commented at length about an interesting article. (They weren’t required to read or comment.) This is great!
Steven Rubenstein
Beverly Hills Unified, CA

In this very tight economy, we are cutting everywhere, but my principal said that Jupiter was at the top of the list of priorities to keep.
Linda Jones
Chestnut Grove Middle School, NC

This program is a revolution! It is inspiring my students to be more responsible and take a more active roll in their academic success!
Heather Cox
Warner Middle School, CA

The feedback that Jupiter is giving my students is having a tremendous effect on their study habits and their grades. Without Jupiter, our students’ achievement would suffer.
Gina Lacava
Roosevelt High School, IL

With Jupiter I’ve gotten raging praise—both the parents and the students like it, and they feel that they can take positive action to improve their grades and performance.
Laura Dominguez-Yon
Cupertino High School, CA

This is awesome! I love it and so do the students. It’s a great way to put the responsibility of grades back into the hands of the students and parents. There really is no excuse for them now of not knowing how they are doing. Thanks!
Jack Dandridge
Stacey Middle School, CA

I love Jupiter. It’s worked wonders for improving student progress and increasing communication.
Marianthi Karavitis
Bronx High School of Science, NY

The students are so encouraged after seeing how each assignment is affecting their grade, because they see that their grades are in their control.
Joy Schmoll
Howard Area Leadership Academy, IL

Through the use of Jupiter, we have saved countless students from dropping out.
Jay Ober
Management Resources College, FL


Easy to Use

The program is VERY user-friendly so even those teachers who don’t catch on to new technologies very quickly could also use it. Thanks for thinking about what teachers REALLY need.
Joe Kleine
Wright City Middle School, MO

Half of our teachers are afraid to use technology, but it was not difficult for me to convince them to use Jupiter because everything is so simple.
Catherine Fuerte
Holy Angels School, CA

This is the first product that has been immediately embraced by other teachers. It is possibly the best and easiest web-based test creator I’ve seen. Congratulations.
Daniel Greenhalgh
Benton County School of the Arts HS, AR

This is the first experience with a grade book where every teacher thinks it’s a good thing.
Barb Schaeflein
Independence Jr. High, IL

Jupiter is so easy for teachers to grasp and they quickly recognize the benefits.
Esther Enriquez
Gilbert Public Schools, AZ

Jupiter has simplified our teachers’ lives, and it has revolutionized grading. Data entry goes quickly, with minimal training. The exports are powerful and game-changing; it has redefined the way we approach data to see the bigger picture.
Mark Cheng
Democracy Prep Public Schools, NY, DC, LA

Teachers like the ease of use and the intuitive nature of the program. This must have been designed by a teacher. Thanks—you have made my life easier.
Ace Marcellus
O’Leary JHS, ID

Your system is nothing short of amazing! I can’t think of any other tool that made grading so easy and intuitive. Most importantly, the teachers love it. Thank you so much for Jupiter.
Adam Seldow
Harvard University, MA

Your app is such a breeze to use. I was up and running in less than half an hour.
Shannon Greaves
Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth

I love it. It is so user-friendly. Yours is the only teacher website I have not had any difficulty with.
Treva Tiberghien
Crescent High School, SC

We were amazed at how well thought out and easy this program is for teachers to use. Whoever was the mastermind behind this program definitely gets an A+ for creativity. I absolutely love it. I received a lot of positive feedback from parents and students.
Jason C. Jones
Nativity BVM Catholic High School, PA

WOW!! The maker of this had to have been a teacher!
Teresa Burgess

Save Time

I spend about half as much time putting grades in as with the program I used last year. I have more time for the important stuff. Thank you.
Nikki Jones
Lafayette High School, MO

Jupiter is a million times easier, faster, and smoother than the system my university uses. I am able to do more long-answer questions to increase the rigor of my courses, while still reducing the time I spend grading!
Dr. Stephanie Daugherty
University of Texas at Tyler

WOW! This will revolutionize my writing curriculum and (I hope) at long last speed up the time to correct papers.
Kathleen Hollenbeck
St. Joseph School, RI

This is my favorite technological advance since the LCD projector. Dare I say it makes grading a bit more of a pleasure?
Julie Goler
Beverly Hills Unified, CA

Jupiter cuts down the time on some jobs that used to take hours to a fraction of that time. It is by far the best tool I use for my classroom.
Lee Van Cauwenberghe
Stanley Knowles School, MB

Awesome. Before, it took me days to grade paper exams. Now it only takes a couple hours. My family thanks you.
Valerie Lovely
Berklee College of Music, MA

I absolutely LOVE the mobile app. I enter attendance on my iPhone and sometimes give extra credit while walking around the classroom. It’s such a time saver.
Michał Nowicki
Waipahu High School, HI

I love Jupiter. It allows me to focus more on student learning.
Brian Theisen
Rock Springs Middle School, TN


School-To-Home Communications

The communication between students, parents and teachers is one of the reasons why our test scores are the highest in the state.
Clark Trowell
Rancho Pico Jr. High, CA

Our parents love it and they are more involved in their children’s progress. They communicate with the teacher right away when they see problems. Also there are less complaints because they see everything.
Catherine Fuerte
Holy Angels School, CA

When I had progress reports last week, not ONE parent had any complaints or surprises, because they had been logging on to see their child’s grades.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Kathleen Long
Lehigh Valley Lutheran School, PA

An incoming parent requested, "Please place my student in a class where the teacher uses Jupiter."
Sinaloa Middle School, CA

Parents are always aware of their kids’ standing in the class at all times and work gets turned in without ever having to make a call or send an email home. It is INVALUABLE!!!
Lee Van Cauwenberghe
Stanley Knowles School, MB

Parents of my students love the system—they have been bugging other teachers to get it.
Frank Carbajal
Fairfield High School, CA

Thank you for making communication with parents a breeze! What a great way to keep parents informed, challenge students to stay caught up, and help teachers focus on teaching instead of bookkeeping. Super!
Glenn Kory
Creekside Middle School, CA

My parents and students love it just as much as I do!
Julie Donick
Saline Middle School, MI

As a parent who likes to stay on top of how my child is doing, I have to say Jupiter is awesome! Why wouldn’t every school board REQUIRE Jupiter?
Parent
Wolfson High School, FL

Editor’s note: Johnson Middle School in CA stopped giving progress reports because Jupiter was effectively keeping parents informed throughout the year.


Even Students Love It

I love this program because I can easily show my parents my grades without them having to speak with my teachers.
Tanistli, 8th grade student
Johnson Middle School, CA

This is the best place to get your grades, even though I do have a D in reading/literature.
Janette, 8th grade student
Golden Valley Middle School, CA

I love it. I get to see how I am doing in all of my classes. I am so excited!!!
Nicole, 8th grade student
Saline Middle School, MI

I love Jupiter. It makes doing homework so much easier!
Chas, 8th grade student
Saline Middle School, MI

Jupiter is the best thing because if I have work that is late I can just look on Jupiter.
Paige, 7th grade student
Saline Middle School, MI

We love Jupiter. My students want me to tell the whole school about it.
Melizza Lozano
Sweetwater Union HSD, CA

I now have to chase kids off of Jupiter instead of YouTube when I’m trying to get them to work on a particular math website! A nice problem to have.

Technical Support

Jupiter consistently has the most responsive and receptive tech support of any tech company I deal with.
David Hollander
Williamsburg Preparatory HS, NY

"Wow!" You guys are not only great, but fast! One of the biggest benefits of Jupiter is the EXCELLENT customer service!!
Melissa Mano
Kalaheo High School, HI

You actually fix minor issues quickly, give customers feedback, and listen to the customer to make your product/services better. I applaud your company’s commitment to Ed Tech.
Justin Hall
Rancho Cucamonga Middle School, CA

When our staff who are not especially tech-literate remark on how wonderfully responsive Jupiter has been, and even sometimes how it has resulted in feature enhancements, well, that says it all.
Russ Lipton
The Oaks Classical Christian Academy, WA

This incredible level of customer service (combined with an amazing, easy to use product) is why I love Jupiter.
Mike Harms
Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School, CA

Thank you so much for your prompt attention! This only makes me love Jupiter more.

Security

What an interesting week!! Our network went down on Sunday night. Teachers who used Gradebook Plus have lost their entire grade book. Those of us on Jupiter are not only intact, but can also access it from home or any other computer.
Teresa Burgess
O’Leary JHS, ID

I particularly like the security features! A student tried to login as me. You immediately sent me so much info about this person that I wrote this on the board the next day. No one has tried it since!
Donna M. Petty
Wright Middle School, SC


Compared to Other Systems

The teachers ALL appreciate how intuitive Jupiter is. PowerSchool literally takes twice as many steps to enter grades, and you are constantly switching from keyboard to mouse. With Jupiter, the teachers rarely came to me [for support] since it is so user-friendly.
Randy Clark
Academy of Waterfor, MI

Far and away the best grading tool I have EVER used. Setup is more intuitive than any other website; entering grades is very quick. It is clear, intuitive, and extremely useful for parents and students. Your program has been absolutely great for me.
Paul Jolly
Windsor High School, CA

I’ve tried countless other systems and nothing compares. Juno is a slam dunk. It balances rigorous, open-ended assessment with efficiency and ease for the teacher.
Michael Harms
Katherine Delmar Burke School, CA

I did some research and explored the features of some half-dozen or more programs. Your program was easily the most attractive, combining practical features with ease of use.
Glenn Kory
Creekside Middle School, CA

I exhaustively tested several programs over the summer and picked the best. Thanks for a wonderful program that continues to improve.
Larry Jones
Daniel High School, SC

I have tried numerous grading software over the last 15 years, but by far this is the best. I absolutely love it.
Tom Saunders
Green Valley Elementary School, VA

I’ve used MANY other gradebooks before, but yours is the BEST! I love being able to email EVERYONE a complete grade report with just a few clicks.
Frank Noschese
John Jay High School, NY

We previously used a different system, but all teachers agree that Jupiter is far more user-friendly and valuable.
Elijah Mackey
Frank D. Parent K-8 School, CA

This is the best grading program I have ever used! You guys are doing such a great job of implementing our suggestions.
Mark Sylvestre
Gallagher Middle School, RI

The upgrades are awesome. Jupiter is blowing our previous grading software out of the water. Long live Jupiter!
Rachel Brown
Lehigh Valley Academy, PA

Thanks for continuing to improve your product. I wish all software developers were as responsive!
Zane Quible
Oklahoma State University, OK

We are blown away. This addresses everything we needed and then some.
Steven Rubenstein

If you’re looking for a streamlined, intuitive and accessible SIS, that provides you with EXTREMELY flexible access to your data, I encourage you to strongly consider Jupiter.
