Besides the outstanding level of service that over the years have been recognized by thousands of satisfied customers, there are many unique qualities that set RSM apart from the other math programs (and there are at least 5 of them in Newton Center alone).
One of RSM's key features is the early introduction of Algebra (as early as the 1st grade) and Geometry (the first full-year course is offered in the 6th grade). These ideas are just beginning to gain recognition in the U.S., but our students have the advantage of being exposed to the successful application of this methodology.
Another key to RSM's success is the school's solid K-12 curriculum, which is focused on depth - not breadth - of math learning, on critical thinking and problem solving (rather than on rote memorization of facts). The building-
With over 100 classes, ranging from beginners' to advanced levels in every grade, RSM combines experience and flexibility to help students of all abilities. Every student can progress at his own rate and change levels as many times as necessary.

Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) is an after-school math enrichment program located in Newton (MA), with branches in Marblehead MA, Acton MA and Santa Clara CA. Since 1997 RSM has been providing world-class math education with an emphasis on problem solving skills and critical thinking. RSM methodology is focused on achieving thorough understanding of every math concept, and mastering the independent problem solving. RSM Curriculum includes all requirements for ISEE, SAT-I, SAT-II, ACT and AP, as well as opportunities to prepare for and participate in National Math Competitions and Olympiads.
Over 1800 students are enrolled annually in RSM classes ranging from Kindergarten to Calculus. Every year RSM students win recognition from Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) and receive Awards for their high scores in American Math Competitions ( AMC-8, 10, 12) and other math competitions. RSM average math SAT score is 774 out of 800.
