This fall, a former music school in Winchester will be home to the newest satellite branch of the Russian School of Mathematics. Already, more than 50 students from Winchester, Melrose, North Reading, Stoneham, and Somerville have enrolled.

From its humble beginnings in Newton, where the school started in founder Inessa Rifkin’s home in 1997, the Russian School of Mathematics has grown from a handful of students to more than 8,200 in five states. Classes still are offered in Newton, but today the school also has branches in California, Kentucky, Illinois, Washington, and nine other Massachusetts communities, including Andover, Lexington, and Marblehead. The school offers math enrichment classes to students in kindergarten through Grade 12.
