Urban Seekers: Interest-based clusters taught by our faculty

 

We provide our students the best of what our own faculty has to offer as well as the expertise of some of NYC’s finest cultural partners. Every week, students join together in an interest-based Urban Seekers cluster of their choosing. They explore a topic and develop a multi-disciplinary project which may include social action projects that have an impact on the community.

Urban Seekers is based on the School-wide Enrichment Model (SEM) developed by Joseph Renzulli (Renzulli,1977; Renzulli & Reis, 1985, 1997). It is an enrichment program for academically gifted and talented students.  PS 15 has extended this program across the school to develop the strengths and talents of all students. SEM provides enriched learning experiences by: developing talents in all children; providing advanced-level enrichment experiences; and providing advanced follow-up opportunities based on students’ strengths and interests.

Check out our fall Urban Seekers cluster video share highlighting the social action projects our students took on!
