Thrive is an educational nonprofit focused on improving teaching, learning, and leading in K-12 schools. In the past decade, Thrive has received a California Senate commendation for innovative education, was recognized as a model for inclusion in special education by the Center for Reinventing Public Education, was nationally recognized as one of 50 model programs for social-emotional education, has repeatedly made the list of the nation’s top 100 most innovative educational programs, and earned the trust of thousands of families.
Our team has supported teachers in all contexts, from large districts like Los Angeles Unified to single-site charter organizations. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff collaborated with statewide educational organizations to co-develop the state’s distance and hybrid learning playbooks. We were also invited by the University of California to create a statewide educational program aimed at supporting families and an accompanying parent playbook for distance learning and homeschooling.

"We are so grateful for your support of DPS! We all left inspired to take the next steps towards personalizing the learning for our students!"
