Contests & Scholarships

Jenifer students have won many regional, national and international awards.  A complete web site is set up for access to the major programs available.  In any given year, more than $100,000 is awarded through these projects.
 

Gifted Program

The school's gifted program offers many special activities throughout the year, including preparation for the PSAT, all of the national and state mathematics contests, and special scholarships.  The gifted program advocates a "revolving door" philosophy that allows students to work with the school's facilitator on special topics throughout the year or for a selected period of time.
