Environmental Perceptions of Gifted Secondary School Students Engaged in Enrichment

Enrichment programs are designed to help students in self-discovery--to discover and explore areas of individual interest, identify personal learning styles, and recognize individual learning strengths. This is a lifelong process, so why do such programs end in elementary school? One reason may be that there is little research to indicate that secondary enrichment programs are effective. This research fills this gap directly through an exploration of student, parent, and teacher perceptions of the effects of participation in one unique secondary school enrichment program.
