Enrichment every Friday is a time for students to nurture their gifts and talents and engage in self-directed learning with teachers facilitating the process. Inspired by Renzulli's work with Gifted and Talented programs, students choose a new Enrichment block every quarter and work with their group to identify their learning goals, plan the process, and create a product for an authentic audience.
