Tendenci® CMS Platform Powers Website for Montessori School of Downtown

Each campus uses easily updated calendars, school lunch menus and photo galleries to reflect their unique personality

Tendenci Powers Education WebsiteHOUSTON, August 14, 2013 – Montessori School of Downtown, the fastest growing school program in Texas, is preparing for the new school year with a vibrant new website, https://www.montessoridowntown.com, which is powered by Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System (CMS) for nonprofit organizations (NPOs). The new website is helping the campuses of Montessori School Downtown to strengthen bonds with the families of their existing students and to provide all the information necessary to help other families decide if Montessori School of Downtown is right for them.

The upgraded website for Montessori School of Downtown, which has campuses in downtown Houston, Medical Center, Clear Lake, Pearland and Silverlake, was designed by Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and software development company based in Houston.

"With Tendenci, our new website is more user friendly and, because it is easy to update and add new content regularly, our parent community is encouraged to visit regularly to stay informed, which is good for everyone involved," said Barbara Bergeron, Director with Montessori School Downtown. "Each of the campuses has a unique personality, so it is very powerful for staff at each campus to be able to keep their online calendars, newsletters and lunch menus updated and to post photos of events themselves without having to go through a webmaster."

Despite having a great deal of information available for parents and families considering sending their children to Montessori School of Downtown, the simple design of the website features big, bright photos of children and makes it easy to navigate to find upcoming events, news and announcements, downloadable enrollment and medical forms, and testimonials from parents.

Montessori School of Downtown, which has a child-centered philosophy that emphasizes individualized learning, is the latest education-related organization to select Tendenci CMS. Others include Beaumont Independent School District, Castle Hills First Baptist School, Children's Assessment Center, Houston Public Library Foundation, Inclusive Schools Network and World Class Learning Academy.

Last year, Tendenci was released as an open source CMS to give NPOs greater freedom and control over their online presence. Tendenci has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Komen Houston (www.komen-houston.org).

World Class Learning Schools Develops New Websites on Tendenci® CMS Platform

Innovative and Easy-to-Use CMS provides more interactivity and information sharing

tendenci_red_medium_200x102.jpgHOUSTON, January 26, 2012 – World Class Learning Schools, an international network of schools that prepares students to meet the growing challenges of a rapidly changing world, has selected Tendenci (www.tendenci.com) as the Web content management software (CMS) that will create, manage and deploy content across its websites.  Zulu Creative (www.zulucreative.com) is providing the Web design and assisting with content development for the project. The user-friendly design is based on the results of a series of usability tests conducted with the sites’ stakeholders. A total of 10 World Class Learning Schools' websites will launch in early spring.

World Class Learning Schools operates schools in Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Houston, New York, Washington, DC, Madrid and in Qatar. The upgraded Tendenci websites will make it possible for each World Class Learning School to add and edit dynamic content on their website. An important feature in Tendenci that led to its implementation is its selective permissions controls that allow multiple tiers of registered-user types, each with individually pre-set, controlled access to information on the website. 

“We have a number of various stakeholder groups, including students, parents, teachers and organizations and people considering our schools; we appreciate that Tendenci’s selective permissions controls make it possible for us to speak to those targeted audiences and to develop content that is of specific interest to them,” said Monica Harter, marketing and communications director with World Class Learning Schools. “We have so much information about learning and our vibrant school communities and look forward to being able to sharing that information to its greatest extent.”

Tendenci provides World Class Learning Schools a full set of automated Web marketing tools bundled inside the website CMS software, including Search Engine Optimization capabilities to raise website visibility on Google and other major search engines. Tendenci supports digital media with online photo and video galleries, which are perfect for showcasing school activities and events. Website users can also subscribe to update alerts through the integrated Really Simple Syndication (RSS). 

Tendenci, which is developed and marketed by Schipul – The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), integrates with Campaign Monitor’s e-mail marketing software to create and send school newsletters and stay engaged with their community online after class.
