  • Supporting Gifted Students

    Enrichment activities are used to expand and deepen student learning. They are often interactive and are an authentic representation of the learners ability. Enrichment activities enhance a student's educational experience by bringing new concepts to light or by employing old concepts in new ways and are fun for the student. They also support and extend core curriculum standards. Enrichment activities allow participants to engage in real world experiences and applications.
