When most people hear the phrase "school spirit", they think of cheering on a school's sports teams. When people on the reality series School Spirits hear the phrase, they think of ghosts and other types of paranormal activity. The series travels to schools across the country to reveal first-hand accounts of paranormal activity as experienced by students, teachers, parents and staff members on the campuses. Bone-chilling re-enactments of the narratives help to bring the hauntings to life for viewers. Prolific reality-TV producer Mark Burnett ("Survivor") serves as an executive producer on the hour-long series.
