PenPal Schools is a safe learning community where children from 150 countries read, write, create projects, and make new friends from around the world!
Children ages 7-18 connect to share perspectives on family and community, work on environmental challenges, design robots, make art, write poems and stories, discover new foods, create postcards, solve math problems, and much more! Built-in lessons guide students to learn about the world while practicing literacy and online communication skills. PenPal Schools has won numerous international awards (including Best Edtech of the Year from Common Sense Education) and has grown to over 400,000 children in 150 countries.
PenPal Schools adheres to strict child safety and privacy laws and is trusted by over 50,000 parents and teachers in 150 countries. Children can only join when invited by a verified parent or teacher. Children do not provide any personally identifiable information (last name, email, etc). All messages are posted in community forums (no 1-1 direct messages). Parents can monitor the posts that their children share and the comments that they receive. PenPal Schools community moderators (former teachers!) review all PenPal exchanges to ensure that children are safe and respectful.
PenPal Schools is based in Austin, TX USA. Our mission is to help children everywhere develop the academic and interpersonal skills necessary to succeed in school, career, and life.
