About RSM-Acton:

One of the first branches of the Russian School of Mathematics in Greater Boston, RSM-Acton provides a top-quality world-class math education for students grades K-12 with an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking skills.  In addition, we offer other enreachment programs such as Chess Challenge Program, SAT-I English & Math Prep, and AP Calculus AB/BC college-level courses!

Since our school first opened its doors in the Fall of 2008 (in the basement of our house), we have experienced phenomenal growth. Over 800 students attend RSM-Acton every week, and almost 100% heard of us through “word of mouth” from our satisfied customers. 

We are conveniently located at the heart of Acton on Main Street (Route 27N), between the Acton Memorial Library and the Central Post Office, and easily accessible from Routes 2, 27, 111, and 495. Our luxurious building has a lot of classroom and hall space, plenty of parking, a safe playground area, and complimentary wireless Internet access. Our branch serves over 20 Greater Boston communities, including Acton, Westford, Littleton, Concord, Carlisle, Boxborough, Harvard, Ayer, Maynard, Stow, Sudbury, Lincoln, Bedford, Burlington, Groton, Bolton, Shirley, Chelmsford, Pepperell, Billerica, and Tewksbury.
