Become a Skoolbo SuperSchool!

SuperSchool

Has your school got what it takes to be a Skoolbo SuperSchool?  Could your students achieve one million answers on Skoolbo?

248 schools have done just that and made it into the Million Club Hall of Fame. With over 50,000 schools playing Skoolbo worldwide, there’s no doubt that this is an elite club, but also one that comes with exclusive member benefits. Our SuperSchools show an average improvement of 34% in literacy and math skills, proving that the more children play, the more they learn!

Every question answered on Skoolbo represents a challenge, the chance to make mistakes, and the opportunity to learn and improve, with a healthy dose of fun thrown in! Just think what rewards a million answers could bring your students…

  • One million learning opportunities!
  • One million challenges overcome!
  • One million smiles!

 

You’ll need everyone on board, but this is easy! With Skoolbo, learning can happen at home as well as in school. Every answer counts – wherever and however your students access Skoolbo.

P.S. 161: Leading the Way in Technology

PS161_CONTEMPORARY_01

P.S. 161’s On the Cutting Edge

Not shying away from the fast-paced technological era that our children are growing up in, P.S. 161 is jumping right in with their very own 3D printer and even a dedicated school app, available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play!

These developments, along with P.S. 161’s resolute passion to nurture healthy, academically gifted students in preparation for their roles as responsible citizens of our world, are a perfect complement to Skoolbo’s dream of literacy and numeracy for all through technology. Just recently, P.S. 161 has entered the illustrious ranks of less than 20 Super Schools who have answered over 1 million questions on Skoolbo. Way to go!

You can find The Crown School right in the heart of Brooklyn, New York.
P.S. 161

A special shout out goes to Carlos Varas, P.S. 161’s talented Technology Manager, for implementing Skoolbo for over 400 students at The Crown School!

Congrats to P.S. 5- 1 Million Answers

Located in the Bronx, P.S. 5 Port Morris firmly believes that its students are tomorrow’s leaders. The mission statement of the school shows the determination of the community to come together and help students succeed as individuals, celebrating and cultivating their unique skills and talents. Skoolbo comes right alongside this mission, ensuring that each child will have a firm foundation of core skills necessary for success in their future schooling and career.ps 5 port morris

Committed to Educational Technology

For years, P.S. 5 has been committed to becoming proficient with the ever-changing technology of today’s world. In 2009, P.S.5X was selected to be a part of the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) initiative, giving each child access to a laptop everyday. This same, steadfast commitment is apparent in P.S. 5’s recent accomplishment of reaching and surpassing the 1 millionth answer mark on Skoolbo! We know that there is much more to come as they achieved this goal well within several months of getting started on the program.

We especially want to recognize Sonia Edwards, P.S. 5’s very own Technology Teacher, whose hard work and dedication has resulted in such amazing achievements from the students at Port Morris!

Keep up the great work, kids!

PS 96 Richard Rodgers | Bronx, NY

PS 96

Legacy Wildcats

Recently, we shared about Legacy Academy’s consistent appearance on our leaderboards, with almost 150,000 questions answered at the time. Less than 2 months later, the 267 students at Legacy Academy have rallied together to answer over 1 Million questions!

It’s no wonder that this school has been able to achieve such an enormous accomplishment as it’s Colorado’s first iSchool. iPads are used on a daily basis in every class to enhance the level of enthusiasm in their learning environment. In addition to individual iPads, students also have access to MacBook Pros, an iMac Computer lab, extremely fast internet, and Legacy’s very own locally hosted “cloud” for teachers and students to collaborate. We are so proud of all the students at Legacy Academy!

Two More Schools Join the Ranks of Super School

Skoolbo-super

It takes a lot to become a Skoolbo Super School–1 million collective answers, that is–but that’s just what both Overbrook Attendance Center (OAC) and South Polk Elementary endeavored to do. Currently, only 4 other schools in America lay claim to the title of Skoolbo Super School.

Overbrook Attendance Center | Overbrook, KS

Overbrook Attendance Center

Overbrook Attendance Center is the pre-K to 2nd grade school for USD #434 Santa Fe Trail, located in the city of Overbrook, approximately 25 miles southeast of Topeka. The OAC faculty’s commitment to nurturing their students’ thirst for knowledge, paired with the support of a vibrant community of parents and others, clearly reflects the students’ outstanding performance on Skoolbo!

We want to give a special shout-out to Overbrook’s Computer Paraprofessional, Cheryl Arwine for bringing technology and education together at OAC. We also want to especially recognize teachers Susan Bernhardt, Roxy Heffner, Chris Giebler, whose classes have answered over 90K questions and Amanda Lattimer and Angie Portlock, whose classes are each well over 150K answers!

South Polk Elementary | Old Fort, TN

South Polk Elementary

Located in the southeast corner of Tennessee, South Polk Elementary is home to the most active students of their state! We applaud the Polk County Schools’ beliefs that

All children can learn.
Learning is a life-long process.
Both mental and physical health are important.
Students need to think both critically and creatively.

These beliefs have propelled 17 classes of South Polk Elementary, each ranging from 30 to 120 K answers, to Super School status!  High praises are due to Amy Hood and Marcia McClary and their Kindergarteners for answering well over 100,000 questions in each of their classes, as well as Tina Davenport, South Polk Elementary’s very own Computer Lab teacher, for setting up and organizing all the classes.

Congratulations to both Overbrook Attendance Center and South Polk Elementary School for their fantastic accomplishment! We here at Skoolbo are committed to our dream of every child learning to read and gaining confidence with numbers and we are so glad to have the support of these two outstanding schools!

Awesome Feedback from Irving Elementary School

Shauna Toolan’s 2nd grade students at Irving Elementary School love playing Skoolbo both at school and home! Ms. Toolan uses Skoolbo for reading and math instruction during centers. At night, her students take home their devices and are able to play Skoolbo at home. She reports that the kids really enjoy the competition aspect of the game.

“It’s fun because you get to play against different people from other states and schools.”

Irving Elementary School Map

Irving Elementary School

Irving Elementary School is one of eight elementary schools in the Berwyn South School District 100, located outside of Chicago, Illinois. The district utilizes 1:1 technology, which led them to become part of the Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE) Program. The goal of Irving Elementary is to provide individualized instruction that challenges students to reach their greatest academic potential. It’s wonderful to see teachers like Ms. Toolan utilizing Skoolbo to accomplish this endeavor.

Mrs. Toolan’s Students Playing Skoolbo During Math Centers

Here’s some of the awesome feedback we received from the students in her class:

“I like it because you can play with friends at school, in other classes, and even other schools!”

“It’s cool because I get to do hard stuff that I’ve never done before!”

“It’s fun because you get to learn!”

“I love it because you can do any challenge – pluses, reading, subtracting, and counting!”

“It’s cool because you can go to different categories, and you can change your character, and you can race with other people!”

Thank you, Ms. Toolan, for sharing these enthusiastic testimonials! We love learning how Skoolbo is helping kids around the country.
