Joseph Renzulli, a child psychologist and noted educator, suggested that a wider variety of talents should be identified and nurtured in children from all cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. His "Schoolwide Enrichment Model" is premised on developing children's full potential.
At Mineral Springs, teachers use Renzulli's model with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study to spark each learner's curiosity and lead them to detailed investigations, often using the arts and technology as avenues. Groups of students work together as young professionals exploring and investigating their interests and talents. Applying advanced content, students develop projects and services for real-life audiences.
As part of becoming a magnet school, Mineral Springs has new classroom learning labs, including desktop and laptop computers, interactive whiteboards, digital and video cameras, printers and LCD projectors. Classroom computers are being used to enhance students' learning and help them develop and present their research projects.
The school also has purchased collapsible, mobile learning labs for students' research and for community experts to use when they visit the school to work with students. The school system also has spent about $4.7 million to renovate Mineral Springs Elementary School's classroom building.
