Abre was born in a school district from a single mission

To change how education software is perceived, created, purchased and deployed to support the entire learning community to better do what they do and what they want to do.

Created by educators who want to give back

As part of the mission, Abre gives back to the learning community in a variety of ways including Abre Everywhere, Abre Appathons, and facilitating the collaboration and sharing of resources.

Abre Everywhere
