About Us

Right now, schools around the country are implementing hundreds (and sometimes thousands!) of technology tools to help support all their stakeholders focused on increasing student success. Yet nearly 50% of purchased licenses go unused. Most educators don’t know how to get the actionable data they need to help students. Resulting in families being more frustrated than ever at how fragmented the educational experience has become. The pandemic has also increased the opportunity gap for our nation’s most vulnerable students, especially those who don’t have immediate access to critical services needed to help support the whole child inside and outside the classroom. We proactively help students by removing silos, connecting all stakeholders around what matters most, and focusing on humanizing education again. 

Abre is passionate about our mission of opening up learning communities by connecting what matters most. With our simple and flexible platform developed in a school district by actual educators, we help schools and school systems consolidate AND integrate their tech stack so all stakeholders know where to go each and every day to access K-12’s only comprehensive Student 360 and related information/resources. From there, all stakeholders know exactly what needs to be done academically and non-academically to better support the whole child to ensure they’re set up for success in life long after they leave school.

In 2020 alone Abre was awarded 4 industry awards from CODiE for Best Overall Education, Ed-Tech Breakthrough for Education Administration Solution of the Year, Tech & Learning for Best of Show, and Business Courier for Best Software Product and Tech Team.
