About RSM-San Mateo:
RSM-San Mateo first opened in Foster City in 2011. The school relocated to San Mateo in 2013.
Today the school's math programs in San Mateo provide after-school math enrichment for K-12 students from San Mateo and the neighboring communities of Foster City, Hillsborough, Burlingame, Millbrae, Redwood City, Redwood Shores, San Carlos, Belmont, Menlo Park, Atherton, South San Francisco, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Pacifica, Half Moon Bay, San Bruno, and Portola Valley.
The Russian School of Mathematics is fully accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) ensuring that each aspect of our math programs is carefully evaluated against state standards and that local schools accept and acknowledge our course transcripts.
At RSM-San Mateo we believe that a quality mathematics education is one of the most powerful tools you can provide a child. We view the widespread aversion to math in our culture and schools as a major problem. Our mission (especially at the elementary level) is to create a counter culture that embraces math as both exciting and useful. RSM's San Mateo math programs are not only designed for students who intend to study math in college. They are made to help widen opportunities in all fields by enhancing logic and critical thinking skills, developing math-specific abilities, and fostering a deep appreciation for the subject.
At RSM-San Mateo, you’ll learn that “Math is cool!”
