    Sharepoint for school website?

    Hi
    Has anyone used Sharepoint for thier school website? We currently use it for all our intranet and departmental sites but are looking to use it for a CMS website.
    Does anyone know of any companies that will design us a new site in sharepoint if we dont do it in house (as its a pain to get looking nice)?
    Also, any idea of cost for someone to do us a new site using another CMS if we put all the content in ourselves - we are just looking for a design/framework setting up.

    Thanks for any help!

    I don't know of anyone who has. Really sharepoint isn't designed for this, its more of an Intranet/Portal.

    Sharepoint works perfectly well as a public website.

    Here is one of the schools in our federation who uses it. I think it's a work in progress so everything might not work

    We will be going down the same road soon ourselves.
