What is Engrade?

Engrade is a digital ecosystem made up of many teaching, learning, and reporting resources for students, parents, teachers and administrators. Engrade allows parents the opportunity to be engaged in their student’s education by providing direct access to student information and progress.

How do I get started?

To view your student’s grades and homework, you will need the student or parent username and password. Your student’s teacher will provide you with a slip of paper similar to the one below: 


How do I login to Engrade?

How do I view Grade Details?

What if I have more than one student?
