RSM Opens in Nashua, New Hampshire

Russian School of Mathematics Brings Award Winning Math School to New Hampshire

Nashua, New Hampshire, August 19, 2014 -- The Russian School of Mathematics (RSM) – the award-winning afterschool math program renowned for developing excellence in mathematics and lifelong critical thinking skills – will open in Nashua, New Hampshire this September in response to high demand for quality after-school math education from area families. Located at 84 Lake Street, RSM-Nashua will be the math school's first branch in the state of New Hampshire. 

The new math school will be led by Igor Chernin, principal of RSM's venerable Acton, Mass. branch, and his experienced team. Having witnessed the remarkable results of the RSM program as parents, Igor and his wife Bela decided to bring the benefits of the RSM program to the Acton, Mass. community in 2008; and with the opening of the Nashua branch they will now extend those same benefits to K-12 students throughout Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts.

"Our Nashua branch will be situated in the heart of New Hampshire's high tech industry where families are highly educated and particularly attuned to the enduring value of a quality math education," says Chernin, a former principal engineer. "We are opening RSM-Nashua after having been besieged with inquiries from area families almost daily for the past several years. Some of our students have been commuting to our Acton location for several years from places as far away as Bedford, New Hampshire."

RSM-Nashua will host a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 20, from 12 Noon to 5:00 PM. The event is free and open to the public. Families are invited to meet RSM faculty, enjoy math games, and schedule free math evaluations for their children. The math school is also now enrolling students for its full-academic year program which begins on Thursday, September 4, 2014. To learn more, visit

Inessa Rifkin and Irina Khavinson, the two Russian immigrant women who started the Massachusetts-based Russian School of Mathematics in 1997, believe that anyone can do well in math given the right learning environment. For more than a decade, RSM students have consistently posted 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’s math enrichment program. RSM students also see higher grade point averages in school, more confidence, and a strengthening of problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

The key, they say, is creating an enjoyable learning environment that emphasizes understanding over rote memorization and having a systematic curriculum and well-trained, enthusiastic teachers who can pass their love of math on to their students.
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 11,000 students at its 21 locations in seven states.
