  • Better educate all families on your school, so they form their views through your existing parents rather than hearsay
  • Ensure that prospective families who visit the school and have face-to-face conversations with you and your parents ask more thoughtful questions

What is ParenTheses?

How does ParenTheses help families?

ParenTheses provides families who are starting the school search process with up-front access to nuanced, thoughtful and detailed perspectives from parents with children enrolled at our partner schools.

Our partner schools connect us with a cross-section of families at the school, and in direct conversations with these families, we gather their perspectives on key areas that you are interested in learning about as a prospective family, so that you can gain a better understanding of whether your family is a good fit for the school.

By gathering thoughtful and detailed parent perspectives, we help you focus your school search and be more informed in preparation for the admission process.

How does ParenTheses help schools?

ParenTheses partners with schools to aid prospective families in their school search by providing them with up-front access to curated, detailed perspectives from the school’s existing parent community.

“Word of mouth” is the number one way that prospective families make decisions on schools, so by putting your parents’ perspectives into an immediately accessible, online form, we help you bring more families -- and well-suited families -- into your pipeline via inquiries and applications.

By partnering with us to share your parents’ perspectives, we help you better educate all families on your school, and prospective families who are able to ask you and your parents more thoughtful questions save you time in the busy admission season.
