PHP App for School Website


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm an outdated Classic ASP web developer finally making the switch to PHP and I'm still fairly new to it.  Anyway, I need to develop a new website for small private school with about 100 students.  The site will be mainly used for marketing purposes, posting news, events, etc.  We will need to have a login for teachers so they can post homework, photos, and some downloadable files.  We do not need to tie it into our school's database for things like updating and posting student grades.  It will be a fairly light application


I know I want to use PHP and mySQL and I was thinking about using something like Drupal, Joomla, etc, but I haven't used a CMS before.  I've also looked online at quite a few sites and I haven't seen any school related website templates that might work with a CMS.


Can someone recommend which CMS might be best for creating a small school website?  Also, if anyone knows of any school website templates, please let me know.
