This program is much more than accelerated mathematics courses. Students have opportunities to work with professional scientists and mathematicians from government agencies. The program offers access to many academic competitions and the opportunity to conduct fieldwork. Throughout all of their specialized coursework, students work with an academic cohort to conduct independent inquiries using mathematics, computer science, and the scientific process to solve real-world problems.
Students may be considered for admissions to the Mathematics, Science, Computer Science Program at Roberto Clemente Middle School or at Takoma Park Middle School—depending on their where the student lives. The consideration process begins with a central review. Grade 5 parents receive a letter in the mail regarding this process.
