BROOKLINE, Mass., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) – an award-winning afterschool math program renowned for developing excellence in mathematics and life-long critical thinking skills - opens a new math school at 1615 Beacon Street in response to the Brookline community's increasing demand for quality supplemental K-12 math education. Conveniently located across from the Green Line's Washington Square stop, the school is now easily accessible to students from all over Greater Boston.
The Brookline branch, a campus of RSM-Newton, will be led by the team of Principal Ralitsa Dimitrova and Dean of Students Nargiz Mamedova. Both women are Brookline residents and mothers of RSM students who have posted top scores in national math competitions. As parents, talented math teachers and administrators, both bring to their roles a passion for mathematics and an understanding of the critical role mathematics plays in business today.
Inessa Rifkin and Irina Khavinson, the two Russian immigrant women who started the Newton, Mass.-based Russian School of Mathematics in 1997, believe that anyone can do well in math given the right learning environment. RSM students consistently post top scores in national and international math competitions and on standardized tests. But as the founders point out, achieving top test scores is just one of the benefits of RSM. Students also see higher grade point averages in their day schools, more confidence, and a strengthening of problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Once based in the Rifkin family living room, the school's aim has always been to help students get into the best colleges by giving them a set of skills they would find valuable in any profession. RSM has seen demand for its math program increase dramatically over the years and the math school today enrolls more than 10,000 students.
