Teachers believe this allows advanced learners to continue to progress educationally at a rate that fits their learning profile and prevents feelings of boredom and frustration. The ENCORE enrichment program is offered to qualifying students in grades three through five to provide them opportunities for additional challenge and project-based learning to facilitate deeper problem-solving skills.
In middle school, many students qualify for advanced math and language arts courses. In addition, eighth grade students may qualify for advanced content in science. More than 50 percent of our middle school students qualify for the Duke TIP program.
