East Prairie School Enrichment Program

The East Prairie School Enrichment Program offers a variety of opportunities for students to develop their skills, interests and knowledge base. The program offers broadening (horizontal) enrichment opportunities for students.

The gifted and talented students have the benefit of have their educational needs met with both broadened (horizontal) as well as accelerated (vertical) enrichment opportunities. These services are planned to meet student’s specific needs.

Enrichment begins with the general classroom teachers. East Prairie School Vision and Mission statements as well as the Beliefs about Learning strongly support education for the whole child with diverse learning opportunities.
