To do this, the learner: -Interacts with diverse characters that model positive social behaviors -Is encouraged by narrators using process-oriented speech -Develops skills in short-term memory through various games -Is exposed to transferable language that can be applied to everyday life experiences to help with conflict resolution, perseverance and acceptance of differences *Coming soon.

  • Great!!! but suddenly started crashing all the time

    By sendyy_doll
    My 3 year old loves this app! He especially loves the human body lessons and the dinosaurs. We had the subscription for about more than a year and all of sudden it started crashing every time he wants to play. I already tried reinstalling it but it didn’t work. I’m thinking about just canceling the subscription which is really unfortunate since my son loves this game.
  • Loaded slowly pain to uninstall on iPad

    It took several minutes to load on my pre schoolers iPad mini. When I went to cancel it kept redirecting to iTunes page and not allowing free trial subscription cancellation...30 min and I’m still trying to cancel
  • My 4yo LOVES it

    By E.hogan14
    We are homeschooling and my daughter loves this app. We purchased the year long subscription because the games really help her with sight words, phonics, and handwriting. We have had it since October I believe and she has gone from not recognizing half of the alphabet to reading and spelling the starter sight words! She loves the craft videos and the ocean chapters especially! Totally worth every penny.
  • Best education app

    By erinlee183
    My son loves this app and I love that they send me a one min video clip of what he’s watched so we can discuss it at dinner. I can’t tell you how many times he has recited a fact or used a word like theropod or otoscope correctly in a sentence and when I ask him how he knew that, the answer is always “Marco’s World”. He stays on top of the days of the week because of the app and is always excited for the beginning of the month because that’s when their new activities come through. Did I mention he’s for and thanks to Marcos works was doing all this at just 3?

    nebulae are not “beyond our galaxy”. At least not the ones they are trying to describe. The Crab Nebula is not beyond our galaxy. It’s only 6000ly away. Our galaxy is 150,000ly across at least. It’s a supernova remnant. It’s very small and fuzzy in a telescope and not the type of star factory you would see from massive nebulae like Horsehead, North American or Lagoon...also, in our galaxy. App is nice, but I can’t see why I’d be asked to pay the price of Netflix for an education product lacking in education.

  • Outstanding!

    By Mark.A.P.
    We are 4 weeks into owning the World School App, and it is now the GOTO App for my 3 and 5 year old! Solid and extensive STEAM base content, and education tools which keeps my kids completely engaged and away from the pure video apps that is a brain drain on little minds. Also brings my wife and I into their interactive educational experience!
  • The best screen time for kids!

    By clesstrang
    A month ago my daughter would sneak my old phone into her room and watch YouTube videos. Now she sneaks it into her room to play Marco Polo World School.. Now this is what I call healthy screen time!
  • Stood the test of time!

    This app has stood the test of time with our 4/5 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it.. it’s her first pick. We have enjoyed it for a long time now!

    Would love to love this but we’ve tried several times over our 7 day free trial and can’t even get it to load. 😔
  • Not worth the money

    1
    By Jinjjjjjjo
    It is educational and all but your options are very limited in the app it’s not worth spending they much for the same 10 videos a month and you need inter net access at all time it’s not like it could be something for him to watch in the car and all
  • Very educational

    By Krisvv
    My 4-5 year old loves this app and so do i. It gives her a of general knowledge in a fun way and she remembers everything she watches. New videos come in weekly and it’s so fun. She uses it about 5-10” a day. It’s perfect
  • Can not unsubscribe!

    By Dre577
    When I go to setting to unsubscribe from this app that is not supported by our iPads the address is invalid. This is a scam you can’t get out of. Sorry I tried it out because I can’t use it and have to keep paying. I’ll be contacting Apple.
  • Best educational app that feels like fun!!

    By Ash/G
    My son just turned 2 and can not get enough of this amazing app! It’s the best one we’ve found! He has learned so much and is already learning site words and body systems and so much information about different animals from all over the world! I also have and 11 year old daughter and nieces and nephews from age 4-10 who also love to sit with my little guy and learn with this app! I would highly recommend it to anybody considering it. It’s worth every cent!! Plus they are constantly adding new lessons and field trips to the app. As an educator myself, trust me. You want this app.
  • Great way to get your kid curious about the world

    My daughter loves this app. The videos are really engaging and she likes telling me all about the new things she’s learning and how things work. I’m even learning from her! I like that there’s new activities every week because she has the feeling that it’s a school.
  • 7 year old wants to keep playing!

    5
    By TGrantNYC
    Dad of two girls here 7 and 9... In a mode of her life where our 7 year old is looking for sight words all around us on a daily basis, this app is making it fun for her to work with them and learn about other things at the same time. For example, there’s a whack a mole type game where a snow animal pops up from the ice holding a banner with a word the player has to recognize. Others are holding up other words so the child has to look at them all and recognize the correct one. Fun! Its snow creatures (from the polar lesson) intersecting with sight words intersecting with speedy recognition intersecting with a good time! Animal characters are supportive when things go well and the app puts no pressure if answers are “wrong.” There is a solid base of content and they seem to be adding more all the time. Fun spending time with my little ones playing and learning! Keep it up!
  • Incredibly engaging and consistent app

  • Free

    By K101709
    I wish there was a free option so that parents can let their kids try the app on a limited basis and if the parents felt the child was benefiting and learning then they could buy the full version. In my experience my child takes more then 7 days to grow interest in an app.

    My son doesn’t like the app, still in the 7day free trial and I want to unsubscribe before it charges my account $70. Can’t figure out how to do it. Attempted to contact... pushed every button available.. there are no account settings to discontinue the use of this app.

    By NRM Mom
    I downloaded your free trial period app for my child and I to discover a new learning app. Unfortunately we are 2 days in a 7day free trail period and the app doesn’t come on at all. The app goes as far as the MarcoPolo sign intro and then we see the plane circling around the world before it shuts down. I just canceled the year subscription, we had high hopes for this app. Im happy this happened during the free trail period and not when I’ve spent my money.

    They forced me to update. Now it won't load. Their support is telling me it's my fault because my iOS version is outdated. My device isn't even old. Cancel subscription please fix.

    My almost three year old son loves this app! He is constantly asking to play it day and night. The app is simple and easy for him to use, he’s a pro by now. The videos are short and informative. The “games” are a good balance of fun and work. I am amazed at how well his writing skills are progressing! He loves the music videos as well. Thank you for continuing to add new lessons, we look forward to them!

    I catch him playing it all the time. He’s so proud when he accomplishes a lesson. It’d be 5 stars if it had offline content so he can play even when we don’t have service.

    Data mining for profit while charging this price is aweful. Shame on these folks.
  • “Free”?

    1
    By crystalv82
    Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.
  • Mediocre

    By MJClowes
    I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
  • My three year old doesn’t care for it

    By 8DollarsIs2TanksOfGasInMyCar
    So I tried to cancel my subscription two days after getting it my child had absolutely no interest in any of the games or activities on this app. I thought that my subscription has been canceled (through iTunes settings) deleted the app from my phone then went to look this morning to see that I’ve been charged. Not cool. So I went through again and deleted my subscription. I don’t know why it didn’t stop when I canceled it the first time. Very frustrating as money is tight. I wouldn’t mind paying eight bucks if it was something that my kid enjoyed, but this was just a waste.
  • So far so good

    By DocCroaker
    So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
  • Nice but trouble logging in

    My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
  • Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service

    By qwertyuiop653478
    Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well

    By Greatest mom ever!
    Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
  • Quite fantastic!

    I started the free trial but it is impossible to cancel the subscription now! I am stuck paying 5.95 a month for something I don’t use. I have tried emailing support but get no response! Don’t start the “free” trial, you’ll never get out of it!!!

    As a mom and educator, I love finding apps that have been carefully developed with sound pedagogy and best practices in mind, while still providing something fun and entertaining for my kids. I love the conversational nature of the videos, my 5 yo is a big fan!
  • Incorrect Information

    By cawalker7777
    Please check what is being taught. The first lesson I clicked on was space. I signed up for the this because I’m a science teacher. You say “rotate around the sun”. That is incorrect. It is “revolve”. Students DO confuse the 2, and correct terminology is critical.
  • Monthly payment is inconvenience
