About Math Enrichment

Our Vision

The vision of Math Enrichment is to provide a superior summer educational experience in a diverse, family-oriented environment that meets all the academic, social, creative, emotional, and physical needs of the individual student.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Math Enrichment believes that all children have the right to be educated in a safe, positive environment in which they are respected as unique individuals and are challenged to achieve their full potential.

We also believe that children must become literate and articulate, mathematically competent, technologically adept, and have the opportunity to develop their creative and physical talents and abilities.

We recognize our responsibility to generate enthusiasm and excitement for the summer by providing a curriculum that is relevant, integrated and age-appropriate. We believe that children will quite naturally expand their understanding and knowledge of mathematics in a setting that cultivates an active, participatory approach to learning.

The ability to analyze, evaluate and employ critical thinking skills in mathematics can only be developed when relevant life experiences require the consistent application of these skills.

We believe that the responsibility to support, encourage and nurture each child is one we share as partners with parents and guardians. We recognize the need to create a school culture that is committed to academic excellence and responsive to individual patterns of growth and development.

Math Enrichment’s vision is based on preparing children to function effectively in future classes; to think independently, critically and creatively; to become collaborating members of daily classroom activities; and most importantly, to become lifelong learners. We strive to create and maintain an atmosphere that fosters the healthy emotional, intellectual, social, and physical growth of each student. We recognize mastery of basic skills as a primary goal. We acknowledge that we learn best in an environment of sharing, caring, laughing, questioning, risking, and growing. We want all students to live, grow and have fun!

Our History

Math Enrichment is an independent summer program for students entering Kindergarten through Grade 11. Math Enrichment was created in the summer of 2002 as a summer school with the goal of setting a model for teaching practices in mathematics that would allow students to excel at their own level while addressing individual learning styles. This could only be accomplished through a commitment to attract and enroll students from a diverse set of backgrounds.

This could only be accomplished through a commitment to attract and enroll students from a diverse set of backgrounds. In its first year, Math Enrichment opened its doors to 25 students in one Algebra Class. Today, we have grown to ten site locations throughout the Bay Area and San Diego.

We have also extended our curriculum to include English/Math Combo Class for elementary and middle school students to complement our high school level WASC Accredited math courses. Math Enrichment has assisted thousands of middle and high school students to obtain higher math level placement. Students we have previously recommended for a higher math placement have over a 90% success rate of earning an “A or B” in his or her mathematics course during the upcoming school year. Our staff is proud of these accomplishments and plan for the same success this year.  We hope to see you this summer!

ACCREDITATION

Math Enrichment Summer Program is fully accredited by the Schools Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the premier accreditation organization in the western United States. Math Enrichment is the only WASC accredited Kindergarten through the 11th-grade summer program in the entire Santa Clara County.

The accreditation process instates a third-party review of the Math Enrichment Summer Program to ensure we meet rigorous, California standards. The process is an engaged systemic, continuous improvement cycle that incorporates feedback from parents, students and staff alike.

Accreditation certifies that the educational programs, services, staff, and facilities meet or exceed essential standards of educational quality. Accreditation provides a process for Math Enrichment to manage ongoing change in a way designed to consistently improve educational quality in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
