Partner Schools

SPIRIT SERIES thrives on collaboration.

The on-going, active engagement of classroom teachers and school leadership is paramount to the success of the SERIES. Just as schools consider our program carefully before deciding to participate, we choose our partner schools carefully as well. Once chosen, we place the highest premium on maintaining these vibrant partnerships. That is why, when budgetary considerations are not a factor, we have an annual renewal rate that approaches 100%. While we take on new partnerships each year, most of our partners are longstanding, and the SERIES maintains an extensive waiting list for its services in Southern California.



“I believe that SPIRIT SERIES is a perfect instructional vehicle in Middle School. I am a fierce proponent of the core concepts behind this extraordinary curriculum!”
