Advanced Academic Programs of Roslyn Redesigns STEM Offerings

Advanced Academic Programs of Roslyn Redesigns STEM Offerings

Each grade divides students in three different levels of classes based on ability, but prepares all students to tackle problems in the real world.


As of this fall, Academic Programs of Roslyn's math curriculum now incorporates three levels for each grade to best suit the diverse student community: fundamental, advanced, and competition math. The robotics program will now including coding, physical computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, with opportunities to learn from industry professionals.

Physics classes will now be offered in five main levels, beginning with pre-physics (grades 5-7) and then physics 0-4, taught by a former physics professor aiming to help students understand physics from an engineer’s eyes. 

Headmaster Tatiana Portnaya says these new programs were incorporated to help students solve real life problems and see that math and science are applicable to life outside the classroom.

Advanced Academic Programs uses this programming to help set its students apart in the real world–to show kids that everything they study in the classroom is at their disposal in life, which Portnaya says many students do not recognize. Her time working at a university helped her understand many students have significant gaps in their math knowledge. Working with kids from a young age can both help reduce knowledge gaps and give them a solid foundation for problem solving and analysis. Beyond math, Advanced Academic Programs offers programming in visual arts, English, foreign languages, music, and more.

For those who are interested in languages, we bring in the linguistics department. For those interested in arts, we do lots of verbal technology products. They get very excited that they understand how something like self-driving cars work,” Portnaya says.
