What Are Enrichment Clusters?

The School wide Enrichment Model (SEM) applies the use of gifted education pedagogy to the education of every student in the school. Instead of focusing solely on students with academic gifts, the SEM encourages schools to identify the gifts in every child and to allow students to develop the gifts, whether academic, artistic, musical, social, or physical, and to focus on how using their God-given abilities to improve the lives of others in the community and even the world.

SJS will start the first phase of this program with our 5th and 6th grade students on January 17th.  We will implement other grade levels as our school progresses into phase 2.
