We use School Center and they want a huge amount (five figures) to upgrade to SchoolCenter Pro and redesign our website.  An example of our high school site designed with school center is here:


It’s a pretty nice site compared with the central office, also done in SchoolCenter.  The central office site is here:

Could Google Sites be used to port our high school and central office pages?  That would eliminate the fees we are paying to School Center.

There’s also Joomla and I am not very familiar with that.  Any comments?

Subject: Re: SchoolWorld - SchoolWires


We looked at many web companies and decided on SchoolWires.  


We have just started the training process with teachers and teams and we are very happy with the ease of creating and editing pages.  Very professional looking pages, blogs, great calendar system, staff, student and community log ins with viewing rights by assigned roles and an easy content management system.  SchoolWires has great training and support in place, to help us facilitate the transition process.  Can you tell we like it?

Does anyone use SchoolWorld for their school website? If so, what is your
opinion of it? We are looking for the professional look, but something all
teachers could use. Any suggestions?
