Welcome to Summer School 2017! Summer classes start on Monday July 10 and continue for 6 weeks through August 17.

Summer is an excellent time to advance your child's academic skills. We offer a wide range of options to do so in a pleasant and intellectually challenging setting. Check us out to see why hundreds of children come to us every summer and stay for years!

New students who will enter kindergarten or grade 1 in September 2017 are invited to simply enroll for our Kids & Numbers Prep or our Level 1 Prep classes, respectively. Students in higher grades who are new to our school should first come in for a placement evaluation before enrolling in any class. Summer recommendations for current students should be discussed with the child's teacher or one of our directors

Summer FAQ

Q:  My child is new to RSM-MetroWest. For which class should I sign him up?

A:   Please schedule a placement test by clicking here.

 

Q:  My child is currently a RSM-MetroWest student, but we joined late and she is struggling a bit. Which class should I sign her up for?

A:  Please contact your teacher to discuss your options. It is likely that either a summer class that will provide an overall review of the past year's topics is the best option, or, if you prefer, private tutoring can be set up over the summer to reinforce specific topics your child is having difficulty with.

 

Q:  My child is doing very well at RSM-MetroWest.  Will she still benefit from  summer school?

A:  If your child does not want to skip a level and does not need to catch up on any material, we recommend signing up for the appropriate Advanced Topics class.

 

Q:  What is the time commitment for summer school?

A:  All regular Math classes meet twice a week for 6 weeks. Of course, there is homework as well.

 

Q:  I am leaving on vacation in the middle of the summer school. Can I pay a pro-rated fee?

A:  No, according to our Payment Policy, you commit to the entire Summer School program fee. However, we will provide you with the homework and class assignment for the time you are away, so that your child can keep up with the program. Many of our families have successfully used this option over the years.

 

Q: My child attends Math Competition Preparation classes at RSM-MetroWest during the school year. Is it still worthwhile to take the Advanced Topics classes?

A:  Yes, absolutely. These classes complement each other. We cover a number of topics we do not have time for during the year, and it is really a lot of fun!
