Class Creator empowers educators to create balanced classes

Class Creator

For many educators, building class lists is the foundation that every school year is built on. Making great classes is one of the most complex processes in a school, with so many data points, requirements, requests, and restrictions – it can quickly turn into a nightmare if not managed well.

In 2014, an innovative Melbourne-based teaching couple who understood firsthand how complex using placement cards, sticky notes and colour-coded spreadsheets was for building classes, decided enough was enough – there had to be a better way! This led to the development of the Class Creator software.

Fast forward nearly a decade, and today Class Creator has coordinated over 4 million student placements, saving schools thousands of hours of planning time. Class Creator empowers educators with all the tools they need to make the best classes for their students, teachers and school community. Designed, developed and supported by educators, Class Creator understands that each school is unique. That’s why the Class Creator software is flexible to cater to the specific needs of every school.
