A total of 164 respondents participated in the study to include five experts, two employees of the school and the 157 parents of the pupils enrolled at the said school for SY 2019-2020. The data were gathered through a survey questionnaire that primarily solicited feedbacks from respondents using the ISO/IEC 9126 Model. Descriptive research design was employed to describe the observations of the respondents based on the set objectives. Findings of the study revealed that the functionality of the system product, the level of usability as well as its performance were all described as “Very Good”. These findings suggested that respondents were impressed by the response time and throughput processes of the developed system.
