Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) School

At Acacia, we believe in the strengths, passions, talents, and interests of our students, and we strive for joyful learning. In the 2015-16 school year we started to implement an approach called Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) that is grounded in 39 years of research and practice. It stems from best practices in Gifted and Talented Education and brings a student-driven focus to high level learning for all students. We believe that gifted education is not who you are, but rather what you do. Through the 3 E's of ENJOYMENT, ENTHUSIASM, and ENGAGEMENT we aim to cultivate self-directed learners  who pursue their passions and create a successful future!
