9th/10th Enrichment

What do you need or want to learn? What interests you? And what are your goals for the future?

On Mondays and Tuesdays during the last period, ninth and tenth grade students participate in an enrichment program that allows them to choose activities that will be fun. These enrichment courses also give students the chance to explore a personal interest more deeply.
Enrichment classes are taught by shop staff, counselors, learning center staff, milieu staff as well our teaching staff. Our goal is to encourage students to reflect on their interests and develop the confidence to pursue them. By offering many choices (which change every quarter) we give students the chance to take risks by being willing to jump into something completely new.
Enrichment classes can be athletic, creative, technical or academic. Students can use them to improve skills, work on social issue, get some exercise, or learn something new. Enrichment classes play an important role in shaping a positive Dearborn experience.
