About Us:

Seesaw is an ed-tech company that opens the window to learning, allowing the brilliance and uniqueness of every elementary student to shine through to teachers and families. More than 10 million people across 150+ countries use our all-in-one education platform monthly. 

Historically, families had little insight into what their children were learning in school, and students had to demonstrate their skills in a one-size-fits-all way that failed to capture the depth of their knowledge. Since 2013, Seesaw has paved a new way for learning by enabling families to participate in their children’s education. Our platform generates a powerful learning loop that connects teachers, families, and students, thus creating an environment where every student can thrive.
