Per parent at All Saints Catholic School in Plano, TX:
“Online Enrollment was very user friendly!! The pre-populated info was correct, very easy to navigate. One feature that I like is the ‘Save’ or ‘Save and Next,’ an easy one but missed in a lot of sites. It provided me reassurance that the info was saved along the process of filling out all the forms. In fact, I had to came back to one of the pages (to enter his Dentist info), very easy (just a click on the menu located @ the left) and all the info was saved there.”
Per Lisa Espinoza, Director of Admissions at Mission Hills Christian in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA:
“I am AMAZED at how simply and clearly RenWeb lays out all these potentially overwhelming tasks for setting up your system, OA/OE in particular. You have done FAR more to get us set up for success than I even imagined.”
