Building a successful website is essential for schools, universities and other educational institutions to provide information for students and to ensure the recruitment process is effective. Internet is truly an important part of successful education and “recent studies show increased engagement between students and teachers via email and social media has a positive effect on learning”. It is also a fact that “top-rated schools are champs of the web” (bestedsites.com). The question is, how to build the perfect education website for your school on a reasonable budget – without buying an expensive custom designed website.

One of the great things about WordPress is the number of high quality pre-designed themes. There are specially designed themes created to meet the specific needs and functionality you want. Aside from that, there are also many useful WordPress plugins. You can use them to extend the power of your original theme, increase website security or speed-up your website. As an example, showing pictures of life around school is always a good way to have students like your website. Image display mechanisms can therefore be very useful and there is many good portfolio plugins available if your theme does not support this feature.

If you plan is to start a new education website, or if you want to improve your existing website it is wise to be looking among the pre-designed education WordPress themes or non-profit-website templates. This can be time consuming and that is why we are sharing this collection of beautiful themes. Most of these are premium, but there are also good free items below. Explore them and share with us your thoughts!
