The Potomac School
When you're a top independent school like Potomac, with the good fortune of having a spacious campus that is still in such close proximity to the frenetic pace of the Capitol, you need a top-notch website that delivers every day.
- Online Newsletters
- Online Annual Report
- PCR Educator
- School Portal
Silverpoint has been working with Potomac for nearly a decade and continues to push the edge (and be pushed!) with the school for how it uses the site to fulfill the evolving needs of the varied constituents. A simple design evokes the natural landscape around it, and a clean interior makes the school accessible for prospective families.
Special treatments and implementations define this site and allow for Potomac's character to shine through. The Potomac Blogs allow prospective families to engage and connect with current faculty, students and parents in an interactive forum. The FAQ page is not your standard Q & A page. Questions fly in at different speeds and open up an answer when clicked on. Users are also able to filter by student, teacher and parent questions or ask their own question which will then be added to the list of FAQs.
The alumni portal is it's own microsite complete with new navigation and layout. Alumni may volunteer, register for events, network with other alums and more. CampusNet, the school's portal, allows users to get password-protected information within the context of an internal site that is entirely branded and architected around what current parents, faculty and students need every day. Data is synchronized every night with PCR Educator, the school's database.
The energy and activity of the school can be felt in the school's faculty and staff directory, in a unique layout with terrific photography, area of expertise and a short biography. Notable alumni are displayed in the Exemplary Lives section to highlight how Potomac has prepared students for successful and exceptional careers.
