WordPress for Education

WordPress has quickly become the go-to web platform for education, already being utilized by many schools and school districts across the globe. At Materiell, we understand the needs of school websites and have extended the WordPress platform to meet these needs.

Whether your site is being managed by an experienced webmaster or a 3rd grade math teacher, users will feel right at home with the easy-to-use, built-for-schools platform.

Arlington Public Schools

An Emphasis on Improved User Experience

Materiell worked very closely with the Arlington Public Schools to create a WordPress multisite that is fully customized to their unique needs. The process started with fact finding, in-person meetings, and moved forward with wireframes and design mocks for APS’ consideration.

Materiell’s experienced designers and developers created a solution based on APS’ needs rather than a one size fits all solution.
