At Jupiter Ed, we strive to make teaching and learning easier for everyone: teachers, administrators, students, and parents. Our goal is to advance technology to:
Help students learn more and learn faster with interactive, engaging content, and stay on top of their homework
Help parents stay informed and involved in their children’s education
Help teachers monitor their students’ progress, collaborate on curriculum, flip the classroom, and spend less time on grading and data entry
Help schools make more informed decisions, and operate more efficiently on limited budgets
Help publishers convert to interactive online curriculum of higher quality
Jupiter Ed was founded in 2004 by David Hundsness, a former middle/high school teacher in Silicon Valley. As a teacher, he was an early adopter of electronic gradebooks since 1992, but over the years he found all the software applications were still clunky and tedious. So in the summer of 2004 he decided to program his own. “At first I was just developing the gradebook for myself,” says Hundsness, “but within a few days I realized all teachers could use something like this.” He launched the gradebook as SnapGrades, and teachers immediately recognized the value of having grades online for students, and they loved how much easier it was. By 2009, SnapGrades had become the #1 web-based gradebook.
Jupiter Ed has proven to be the innovation leader in education technology. Within a four-year span, we expanded the Gradebook to include the SIS, LMS, and Analytics, far outpacing all the competitors. All our applications were developed in-house, not acquired from third-parties, so Jupiter iO is truly the only fully integrated solution on the market.
Jupiter Ed has grown every year, and we have been profitable since 2006. We are completely self-funded, with no debt or investors. We have recruited the brightest talent, with employees now in 6 states. We currently serve schools in all 50 states, totaling 3.7 million students.
