Company Description

Intellispark is a mission-driven education technology company focused on helping PreK-12 schools, families, and communities implement a new approach to promoting student success. Parents and educators agree that education is about much more than academic proficiency, yet today education data mostly means grades and test scores. It’s time to give schools, families, and communities the instrumentation they need to measure development of the whole child, at scale. But, measurement isn't enough. We need to combine measurement with action. We are working to ensure that every child gets the support she needs to succeed in school and in life.
