myStaples is the one-of-a-kind application designed to streamline both students' and teachers' day-to-day activities at Staples High School in Westport, CT.
If you're at all familiar with the iSHS webapp (http://m.stapleshigh.net), you'll love this native iPhone application.

Viewing personalized daily or modified schedules as well as current period information all cross-referenced with the lunch schedule is a breeze with the completely redesigned user interface. myStaples seamlessly syncs with the server on startup whenever there is internet in order to always have the latest modified schedule and lunch schedule.
The Lunch Box tab gives you quick information about lunches for the current month and also gives you the option to browse the entire lunch schedule for any other month or class type, a task previously very difficult to accomplish.
