​Success Stories

Don’t just take it from us—check out what the teaching community around the country has to say about Sanford Harmony.

“The feedback I had from all of the teachers was very positive! The students loved the Z character and were able to relate with the things Z encountered in the stories. We are very excited to have access to Sanford Harmony and to be implementing it again in this coming school year.”

-Stacey Adler, Ph.D., Mono County Superintendent of Schools, CA

“Sanford Harmony has enhanced our curriculum by giving the children new tools to interact with one another. They are expressing themselves with words, instead of being reactive to situations. The lessons are going to be able to give the children ideas and conflict-solving solutions in their everyday lives as they grow up.”

-Robyn Bowman, Preschool Manager, Lakeside Union School District, CA

I have used the conversation cards when modeling partner talk (how to be a listener, how to be a speaker). The ideas are fun and engaging! They have been a positive addition to my first grade classroom.”

-Ms. Jewell, Delta Elementary Charter School, CA

“Kudos to the creators of the Harmony curriculum for getting it right! It is working for us. We are grateful for your willingness to respond to our needs. We appreciate your generosity in providing us amazing materials that include: awesome lessons plans, cards, meet-up ideas, music, coaching, t-shirts and Z dolls. The Ambassadors represent many years of educational wisdom. They have provided our school with great training, coaching, brainstorming, and above all, encouragement!”

-Jo Ann Simmons, Counselor, Holy Family Catholic School, FL

We are so grateful for Denny Sanford for his selfless dedication to improving the lives of students and the world around them.”

-Rob Darling, Principal, Selah School District, WA

“We especially love the Buddy-Up experiences. It is wonderful! The more time children have to spend their day with their buddies, the more comfortable they become with their daily routine and with one another. We are still learning how to use the program and we like it very much!”

-Donado Giovanna, Head Start, Orlando, FL

Harmony strategies and materials help our youth develop positive peer relationships and a sense of community. It is exciting to see youth from different backgrounds and cultures laughing and interacting with one another.”
