When & Where
Mass Math + Science Initiative
The Mass Math + Science Initiative (MMSI), an Advanced Placement* (AP) driven, performance based public-private partnership operating at scale, is the state’s largest high school math and science program aimed at underserved students. MMSI is expanding access to rigorous AP coursework and closing achievements gaps in more than 60 high schools statewide. This comprehensive Program combines rigor with multiple supports including teacher training, content coaching and additional learning time for students to produce results.
Now in its 5th year, MMSI has consistently delivered a disproportionate percentage of the state's AP gains, nearly doubling college credit eligible AP scores in math, science and English.
From 2008-2013, the program has resulted in: more than 5,000 new enrollments in AP classes, and nearly a 150% increase in the number of students earning qualifying scores on math, science and English AP exams.
By 2014, MMSI will engage more than 8,500 high school students annually, greatly increasing their likelihood of college enrollment and completion.
Massachusetts is one of six states selected to participate in an innovative program led by the National Math and Science Initiative to address the drastic decline in math and science education in the United States. A five-year, $30 million initiative, MMSI was organized by Mass Insight Education in partnership with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and private funders.
