About

The Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) is an award-winning, after-school math program for K-12 students. Recently named “among the top schools in the world” by the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, RSM helps children of all levels excel in mathematics. The Russian School of Mathematics believes all children are capable of developing a solid foundation in math if taught correctly. By guiding students to derive new concepts based on those they learned before, RSM promotes understanding over memorization. Algebra is introduced in elementary school when kids are best at grasping abstract concepts. RSM teachers ask the youngest students to become thinkers and analysts, encouraging them to discover solutions and reflect on how they reached that solution. Because of this approach, when RSM students are confronted with any problem they don’t recognize, they don’t back down. Instead, they consider different ways they might tackle it. All of the Russian School of Mathematics’ teachers have a degree in mathematics or a related field. Most importantly, they have a deep love for mathematics. RSM’s team of curriculum experts use their wealth of classroom experience and strong academic background to continuously advance RSM’s curriculum and teaching methods. Math empowers the mind for independent thought. Whether it’s excelling on a test, getting into a top university, or succeeding in any career, math is what gets you there.
