Real Testimonials

Hear what teachers, superintendents and administrators say about our products.

With our high achieving students, I have seen the impact of Classworks in Math. When we are problem-solving, some of those students are able to use higher-level strategies because of the exposure from Classworks. In Reading, some of our stragglers are getting a refresher on reading foundation skills that are no longer taught in the 4th-grade curriculum. I look forward to seeing their growth this year!

Nicole Wilson
Douglas County School System

Classworks is the one intervention that was a non-negotiable and was truly implemented with fidelity from 1st grade to 5th grade. The teachers at Northside Elementary really like the program and the fact that is directly correlated to STAR which ultimately helps to improve their results for each of their student learning objectives regardless of where they are based on grade level!

Wilsey Hamilton
Colleton Country School District

There are many resources for RTI, but often they only address one or two components. Having to purchase and train teachers on multiple programs is expensive and time consuming. Classworks is the all-in-one RTI resource we needed...

Dr. Manika Kemp
Clarksdale Municipal School District

Thank you, thank you! You guys at Classworks are seriously the best! The help I have received every time I have a problem has been far greater than anything I have experienced in the education field. I am seriously so appreciative for how helpful everyone has been. The success team ensures that teachers have no excuse not to use Classworks in their rooms. You guys rock!

Vickie Clark
Marion County Schools

I thought I was looking for the unicorn, digital lessons aligned to my standards that get my kids excited to learn. Classbloom met my high expectations and didn’t require me to sit at a training for hours before I could use it. My students and I were able to dive right in.

Amanda Tulgetske
Mountain Home School District

The reading and math lessons prepare my students for what they will see on their high stakes test. Not only are the problems similar, but they have a variety of tools to solve them. Students have to explain their thinking and do error analysis. That’s so valuable!

Jennifer Geyer
Gwinnett County Schools

"Classworks challenges students in a fun way based on the grade-level in which they can work. Since the work is independent, students are unaware of some of the learning challenges others may face. This is important to the self-esteem of my students."

The problems are already differentiated so I don’t have to struggle to find lessons that will help all my students grasp the concept I’m teaching. In just a couple of months I have seen the confidence level of my students increase tremendously!”
