Enfield is one of two ICSD schools that began providing free and reduced lunch to our entire student body this year due to our high numbers of low-income students, Given this demographic, we are committed to doing all we can to level the playing field for our students. Our goal is for Enfield to get a steady infusion of science and technology programming to expose our students to more rich learning experiences. Outside presenters with STEM expertise will deliver the programming.
