Our Powerful Tools

GuideK12’s powerful web-based analytics suite helps a wide range of users within a school district — from the superintendent wanting to analyze trends affecting the budget, to a committee wanting to examine boundary changes, to a parent needing to know if their potential home purchase is in the preferred school zone.

Our analytics suite incorporates information from a variety of sources — enabling analysis, strategic planning, enrollment analysis, growth and consolidation analysis, along with the ability to view information spatially — all wrapped up in a single user-friendly tool that is easy to use.

Our Established History

GuideK12 was born over five years ago, yet has deep roots going back several decades. The original company began as a mapping company primarily focused on supplying hand-drawn boundary and bus route maps to schools. As that business began to wane, it was sold to an investment firm. The newly formed organization pulled together experts in education, demographics, analytics and technology, and saw the potential for a new visualization software that would bring geovisual analytics into the education market for the first time.

This ability to bring the knowledge from the past together with emerging technology was the spark that launched GuideK12, geovisual analytics for education.
