Enrichment

Enrichment takes our students beyond the classroom and builds their foundation of understanding in particular skills such as reading comprehension, writing and math. Enrichment allows younger students, not only to be presented with new content and ideas, but to also practice and re-visit topics learned in school or fill in potential gaps.

For Math: working on and understanding math homework is the emphasis.
