About DeansList

At DeansList, we build exceptional software that empowers schools and educators to be successful. Our SaaS platform streamlines day-to-day school operations to improve productivity and increase transparency - so every educator has the actionable info they need to help every student succeed.

Our clients include many of the most innovative schools in underserved communities, mission-driven to closing the Achievement Gap. We focus beyond academics and make tools that make it easy to build strong relationships with families, reduce absenteeism, and create a positive, joyful school culture. We are as passionate about helping schools and students as the educators we serve are and we pride ourselves on going above and beyond to support their constantly-evolving needs.

DeansList is a portfolio company of Imagine K12 (YC’s education vertical). Our team is a close-knit group of former educators and technologists passionate about helping students and educators succeed.
