The AHF Grundschule is a state-recognized private school in Leipzig,
Germany. It offers a stimulating learning environment, based on Christian
values and focuses on the individuality of each child.
It enrolls 160 students in Primary School, offering 2 distinct educational
curriculums: the “Schule” and the “Hort”. “Schule” curriculum consists of the
state-approved courses for pupils in the state of Saxony, while “Hort” is the
extracurricular activities program that makes the AHF educational offering
In AHF Grundschule, education goes far beyond the mere transfer of
knowledge. The school aims to shape the students in a lively and practical
way with parents being also part of this process
As a multi-level school with “Shule” and “Hort” curriculums, AHF faced
serious challenges managing academic data and processes without having
a cloud-besed SIS in place.
The main objective of the research for a brand-new Student Information
System was to find a solution that would be end-to-end, without having to
rely on different systems for managing the various academic and back-office processes.
The school’s CEO, Steffen Schörner, was evaluating SIS vendors for more
than 5 years without being able to find an all-in-one solution that could
offer a “single source of truth” for managing his organization.
The various local-based SIS vendors were offering just parts of the required
functionality, thus creating the need for implementing a number of IT
solutions that would be difficult to work in sync.
