Scalable and Flexible Platform

Focus School Software licenses systems to provide school districts with a scalable and flexible solution that meets not only the information demands of today, but also the future. Our clients range in size from a few hundred students to over one hundred thousand (100,000) students all running on a SQL relational database on either customer owned servers or remote Focus servers.

With an open architecture platform, Focus School Software provides our customers with a system that can meet the ever-changing demands of student information reporting and analysis. In addition, the district can share in the developments of other Focus users.

Focus is 100% web-based HTML5.

Focus runs in the Cloud.
