A key component of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, enrichment clusters bring students together in interest groups across grade levels. After the Enrichment Cluster Fair, students in first and second grades and third, fourth, and fifth grades rate their favorite topics of study and are sorted into small groups. Topics range from set design and eating well to jewelry-making and coding. Each Wednesday for seven weeks in the fall, the first and second grade groups meet to explore their areas of study, learn from experts in the field and chart their own in-depth learning. In the spring, these students select a different cluster topic and enjoy another seven weeks of exploration. Third through fifth grade groups explore one topic for sixteen weeks, and present their discoveries in an Enrichment Cluster Expo in the spring. Parents, teachers, and experts from the community who contributed to the clusters' efforts are invited to attend.
