An online portal for Scholarship Schools

Scholarship Schools is a California-based charter school network founded by former California Senator Gloria Romero and Jason Watts.

Strategy Star built a website system that allowed Scholarship Schools to operate multiple school websites with and offer a consistent web experience to their students, parents, and staff. We launched the system on March 13, 2017.

The core components and capabilities of the system were:

  • Mobile-ready websites for the network and its schools
  • Online enrollment
  • Multi-language support
  • Portal for parents, students, and teachers to communicate and share materials
  • Content Management System (CMS) for school staff manage the websites

We built the website system with open source software including PHP, MySQL, Apache HTTP Server, Symfony Framework, Bootstrap, and jQuery. We deployed and managed UAT and Production environments on hosting services from LADedicated with CDN, DNS, and WAF capabilities from CloudFlare.
