I sent my son to RMS framingham 6 years ago. He learnt a lot. Great teachers and teaching materials! Very well organization! He moved from regular class to advanced years ago and last year he was moved to honors class. Usually, he struggled a little bit at the beginning, but he adjusted and fit in to the class quite well later. The on-line homework is the high-light. The questions are well chosen and help students to get the concepts smoothly.

It is luck to have a RMS nearby if you want to have your kids to be good on math but your school could not provide enough.
My twin boys have been attending RSM MetroWest center, Framingham for the past 5yrs and I can attest that it has really helped them to get a solid foundation in advanced Math concepts. The curriculum is challenging and well advanced than what they do in public schools. Luckily we had very good teachers at RSM all these years who were able to motivate kids to do their best at Math.
Study material and home work assignments are a big plus. If you diligently do the RSM assignments you can easily ace the school work. You will definitely reap benefits if you are a dedicated RSM student and do all your assignments.

My son had a wonderful experience at RSM, Framingham, his mathskills improved considerably and was challenged enough to participate in competitions!! Needless to say his school math became very easy for him.

My kids attended RSM for the past 4 years. They found it to be extremely helpful in advancing their math skills and making them, not only well prepared, but also more confident and advanced in their middle and high school math.
They do give homeworks that kids needs to work on at home. However, I found this to be beneficial as extra practice did help my kids to become faster and more used to tackling various forms of math problems.

I strongly recommend RSM Framingham. My daughter attended 6 years of RSM classes and took 2 Summer classes as well. She is now preparing to go to a rigorous high school and she placed into the highest level for her grade and she is not a math kid. Thus RSM gets objective results. But that was not our purpose for sending her to RSM and RSM is not about getting slight advantages in taking exams.
The mission of RSM is that the staff recognizes that leaning mathematics and its concepts well requires extra time that is often not given in standard schools. Poor math preparation often leads to math phobia in later education that can severely curtail opportunities—not just which college your kid goes to but their entire career. RSM can prevent this problem.
Our daughter started in 2nd grade which was key to her success. She liked her teachers and found the classes engaging as there is a lot of classroom interaction. I am not going to lie and say she always wanted to go or liked doing her homework—no normal kid would. But as time went by, she acknowledged that it helped her in regular school. After a few years at RSM she would report she already understood a “new” topic being taught at her public school. I don’t think she’ll ever think she cannot do math—she knows it requires work—but it can be done.
RSM offers training for math contests if you are interested. We did not pursue that training and its distinctly separate from the standard classes which are the main focus of RSM. We found the staff to be enthusiastic, helpful and professional.
In summary, I think RSM offers a very valuable experience for kids that will pay off for the rest of their lives.

My daughter was happy to be a part of RSM, she had a chance to meet nice people and motivated students. RSM helped her improve math skills and social skills. Your program helped her a lot to succeed in her regular school. I am very thankful to our teacher Mr. Sukher for all the help for the last couple of years! We appreciate all you've done for our family. (My older daughter was you student also! ) We are happy to be your alumni and will recommend your program to our friends and neighbors.

It is a proud moment for us to let you know that Shristi has been admitted to College of Engineering, Cornell University for the Class of 2020. I would like to thank RSM and its teachers for providing excellent coaching, encouragement, and challenging Shristi every single week. The problem solving strategies have helped her to look beyond the subject and connect the concepts with usage and at a broader level. This was very helpful in high school, and even her teachers acknowledged her ability. Her five years at RSM Metrowest helped inculcate a positive attitude for learning along with commitment and dedication towards completing all her work, which in turn helped her to grow both inside and outside of school.

We wanted to thank you for the regular updates about Pranav's progress, what the class is working on etc. Appreciate your help and support. Coming to RSM has made Pranav much more confident and in, fact, he finds Math fun! We cannot thank Ms. Karla and Ms. Irina enough for that :-).

I want to take this opportunity to thank you Anna, and the School of Mathematics, for broadening our son's field of vision on mathematics. He has seen many topics and ways to approach them that he would not have had access to otherwise.

Our son has been with RSM-MetroWest for several years. At the end of the 7th grade he took the Math SAT and earned a perfect score of 800. We just wanted to thank Russian Math for preparing him so well.

My second grader complained that school was boring. He was above grade level in math and was not being challenged. He has thrived at RSM, and continues to progress well beyond grade level. My fourth grader needed extra math practice. RSM helped her to meet, then exceed grade-level requirements.
My children look forward to class each week. The teachers establish rapport with the students, making connections through personal interactions. And the math games are fun!
RSM teaches to the student's specific needs and rate of progress. Initial placement testing and year-end recommendations ensure the student is always in the appropriate class. Student needs are met more effectively than a set yearly curriculum based on grade level.

We are delighted to observe Rohit's growing interest in problem solving, ways to analyze and explore possible solutions. We are grateful to all the staff members of RSM-Metrowest for instilling the curiosity and problem solving techniques with ever interesting puzzles and their invaluable guidance to numerous Math Competitions.

I want to take this moment and thank Mr. Gene for teaching our kids. Sarayu loves the way you teach and is always waiting to attend your class at RSM. Your way of teaching logic is working great. With your help, time, efforts and passion, she even exceeded Math League which is for Gifted and Talented Kids. She topped in Brophy and second in Framingham District. I really wish you can teach her again in next year too. But understand that each teacher is assigned for each level. Thank you for all the wonders and magic you are doing for teaching our kids and getting them to love their math.

Dear Dr. Charny & Karla,
We just wanted to say Thank you to you and your Staff for a great 1st year.
We initially were concerned our girls would think Math Classes would be more of a chore and they would dread going to classes.
In the end, they are more engaged with math and having a lot of fun.
We actually didn't tell our daughter that she did well this year and she was very much surprised during the awards ceremony. Just a reminder-hard work does pay off.
Both our chldren are looking forward in returning this Fall.
Thank you for all your hard work and your commitment.

We very thankful for having a chance to be an RMS-MetroWest member for the last 4 years. It has helped our daughter to study a vigorous math program and also be successful in an advanced math class at AMSA. We appreciate all our teachers and specially Mrs.Trishina. We are thankful to Dr. Charny and other founders of RSM-MetroWest for creating such a great school where children can study an advanced level of mathematics and participate in Math Olympiads. Your program also helped our older daughter, who attended RSM-MetroWest during its first years, and it was nice to see how the school grew over time. We have a lot of friends and neighbors who are attending RSM-MetroWest and we will keep recommending your program to others, who are interested in advanced math study for their children.
