Enrichment Resources
The enrichment team in Lake Bluff School District 65 is passionate about achieving the vision of excellence in education. Recently, the District partnered with the Northwestern University Center for Talent Development to complete a review of District 65 Gifted and Enrichment programs. After the report was released to the members of the Board of Education, the District embarked on a process of renewing and enhancing our programs for students identified as gifted and talented. 

This site has been created as a mechanism for communicating important updates about the programming offered in District 65. The enrichment team looks forward to working with parents and families to ensure that all children are challenged at an appropriate level.
