PS15 is a School-wide Enrichment School. The School-wide Enrichment Model (SEM) (Ren
zulli,1977; Renzulli & Reis, 1985, 1997) is an enrichment program used with academically gifte
d and talented students and an approach for all schools interested in developing the strengths and talents of all students. The SEM provides enriched learning experiences through three goals; developing talents in all children, providing advanced-level enrichment experiences, and providing advanced follow-up opportunities based on student’s strengths and interests. The SEM focuses on enrichment for all students through high levels of engagement and the use of enjoyable and challenging learning experiences that are constructed around students’ interests, learning styles, and preferred modes of expression.
