How it all started
Schrool® was founded in 2008. We are a group of teachers who has long been debating
the reasons for low performance of students in mathematics, especially at the lower
to middle high school level. Despite the wide range of learning aids available,
all of which designed to help students achieve high grades in maths, the problem
seemed to rather escalate.
Our concern was the persistent reluctance shown by most struggling math students
when it came to following math video lessons that were specifically created to help
them understand math. They showed a lack of concentration and understanding of the
lessons was low.
Those students were too proud to admit that they didn’t have enough basic math knowledge
to understand what was being taught at their level. It was easier for them to show
It was disheartening to see these kids eventually drop out of math, or out of the
school system altogether, with the prospect of a rather bleak future.
The quest for a solution
Our group of teachers decided to dedicate part of their time conducting surveys
and experiments to help find a solution that would help alleviate this problem.
Research conducted by our team showed that it was lack of confidence and the fear
of failure and embarrassment which deterred most kids from showing interest in learning
math. We found that most kids used disinterest as a defence mechanism for the lack
of confidence in tackling their homework after a lesson which, in many cases, could
also be attributed to short term retention of what is learnt at school.
Something had to be done. Our aim was to find a solution that could solve both these
problems. We set up different programs and experimented with different methods of
learning. We worked over a few years with various groups of students.
After gathering a stack of information as well as referring to years of research
conducted by our team, we finally adopted a method which has proven to satisfy both
the needs of students lagging behind in math, as well as students with short term
memory, to be able to now complete their homework without much problem.
We realised that there are many more students out there who have similar problems
and who need help. We therefore decided to create the Schrool system which is now
helping both parents and teachers with struggling students learn math quicker and
WHAT’S SCHROOL® Objective?
To help as many students understand maths the easier way.
