A school ERP system is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that built to manage the school resources that include the teacher-student workflow.

While many ERP systems can be used for education, a school ERP can manage students, the education process, exams, employee, and many more.

School ERP is relatively smaller than the ERP systems intended for companies and enterprises, and many are designed for specific schools but can apply to others with some customizations.

However, it is important to note, that a School or College ERP system is a bit different from a complete school management system, which we covered in this list:  Top 9 Free School Management Systems for 2022. A School management system is more feature-rich and polished software to manage schools.

In this article, we offer you a list of open source school ERP systems that can be downloaded, installed, tested and used by any school, free of charge.
