From The Founder

SmartClass was born out of necessity for the problems I encountered over the years as an education fellow.

The idea for SmartClass came to me when I was a principal. After, working with different technologies and school management systems, I realized that none of them were comprehensive enough for teacher, parent and principal side.

I started using my coding background as a computer engineer and teacher to combine all of these things into one product. Working alongside with parents, teachers and students day to day enabled me to create a school operating system with new technologies to improve quality of education, create an all-in-one ERP and become SmartClass.

We're on a mission to use the latest cutting edge technologies to help schools run more efficiently and give parents, students and educators a step to higher quality of education.

My goal is to make sure that we're meeting your needs and expectations in school management, and work continuously to improve your experience with SmartClass.

If you need any help at all, or have any questions, we here at SmartClass would love to hear from you! Please feel free to reach out anytime.
