Can anybody suggest software that runs on Ubuntu to manage a high school. Software would need to hold a database of students as well as generating reports based on marks entered.

Please provide links

I do not understand why is this question marked as too broad. Software with a students database and capable of reporting is a pretty narrow request. – Luís de Sousa Mar 25 '14 at 20:20
This is niche software. As such I asked the question here as a general search turned up few options. The fact that there has only been 1 answer so far I would think demonstrates that it is not too broad – Duncan Mar 26 '14 at 8:03
@LuísdeSousa as long as the question is a pool instead answers where each answer is equally valid, it's too broad. Duncan, I recommend you instead Software Recommendations, but instead provide a very specific set of requirements. There your question will be well received. – Braiam Mar 27 '14 at 23:31
What do you mean by "the question is a pool instead"? – Luís de Sousa Mar 28 '14 at 9:33
To me this sounds like a website and not software.... – Alvar Mar 28 '14 at 10:54
