This is by far the best grade book/lesson plan program that I've tried. You can tell they read the feedback and are always striving to improve the product.

I began our homeschooling adventure 12 years ago when my first daughter was kindergarten age. We have 8 children, 2 of which are now in college. For most of these years I have been writing out each students weekly assignments. That took time from homeschooling, and often time from my weekend. This year I began using Homeschool-Planet. I have 5 "students" and also participate in a homeschool co-op one day a week. Homeschool Planet has helped me organize and save hours each week! I am so happy with the product! The customer service is AMAZING! N...(more)

I tried Homeschool Planet on the free trial. I loved it so much I had to purchase it. It is easy to use and tou can know import any worksheet or anything to help your children with their assignments. Try it I bet you will not regret it.

I'm really enjoying this planning system. The product is easy to use and it is simple to navigate about the system. I love having my schedule for the day e-mailed to my inbox so I can see what was planned. I also love being able to move assignments around with ease. Beats my old method of erasing and rewriting assignments on paper. I'd highly recommend Homeschool Planet if your current system is tedious or not working and you'd like to get your school organized!

I am really happy with Homeschool Planet! Being able to shift days of work forward or out at a click of the button has revolutionized my planning.

I am a person that when the schedule says we should be on "Wednesday" of a schedule but we are only on "Monday" I get stressed. By being able to move things around so easily it helps to relieve that stress for me.

I am looking forward to some of the updates I have seen are in the works. The ability to save a set of assignments that are entered for use later with a younger child will be...(more)

I have attempted many different ways of tracking attendance, grades, hours, and class plans. Homeschool Planner does all of these plus, many additional reports needed to track our homeschool plans. Schedules are so easy to change, leaving neat and orderly.

I highly recommend everyone to try Homeschool Planner.
Eli, Co-op Member
I was looking for an LMS that would allow me to schedule my kids days, provide web-links, and allow for them to log-in and check it off as they go. Homeschool planet is the only LMS on the market that I found that was user friendly and could do all those things and more. This system has made my days so much easier and the kids like knowing what is expected for the day. If something comes up it is very easy to reschedule or adjust as needed. I have researched and done the free trial for every LMS available on the market and Homeschool planet is ...(more)

A monthly fee for a calendar and planner??? What I had was free. It wasn't working great, but it worked somewhat. How much better could this planner be? I'm a sucker for free trials, though. I tried it out, and I'm very happy I did.

As advertised, this program allows me to create regular lesson plans and keep track of my calendar. But, I found that it can do more. I can also break down any project (school, house, or other) into tasks that get assigned day by day. The Rescheduler makes sure that tasks don't get forgotten. My kids...(more)

I played around with several homeschool planners for a couple of weeks. I even paid for one 30-day trial with one that looked promising.

I am sticking with Homeschool Planet because it has all of the features I wanted and is flexible. My favorite features are:
- it's flexible enough to work for a wide variety of planning types. Lots of detail is available but you don't have to use it all.
- it's easy to reschedule assigments
- printable checklists for mom or student
- hours tracking
- flexible and time-saving routine scheduling...(more)

I'm still in the middle of the trial period for this software. My kids are really too young to have use of the software themselves for scheduling. However, I've found it very user-friendly, organized, and intuitive--it's the kind of program I would have written for myself if I had the skills and time. :) I am planning to continue to use it and pay for the service--it really does make planning easier. My husband and my father-in-law, both computer programmer/ analysts, were thoroughly impressed with the software also. Highly recommended!!
