School-Wide Enrichment Program (SWEP)
The Mission of the School Wide Enrichment Program (SWEP) is to challenge students on an academic level in math and reading, while also encouraging creativity, higher-order thinking skills, problem-solving, and technological awareness.
The elementary program mainly serves grades three through five. Starting in late October, students are pulled for math and literacy one day per week, which continues for the remainder of the school year.
Middle School Program:
The sixth-grade middle school enrichment program offers various classes based on the current need. Most groups meet once a week for 50 minutes with a focus on literacy or STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). Each activity incorporates creative problem solving, higher-level thinking, and leadership/communication skills.
Students who qualify for enrichment services will regularly score at or above the 95th percentile on several criteria:
- STAR: The achievement test students take in their regular education classrooms.
- SRBCSS: Scales for Rating the Behavioral Characteristics of Superior Students. Developed by J. Renzulli.
- CogAT: The Cognitive Ability Test, given in the spring of grades 2 and 5 to high-achieving students.
