Empowering teachers to implement the best informed actions to improve student learning in math and science.

AMSTI Facts.....
  • AMSTI is the largest, most comprehensive, and successful math and science initiative in the nation.1
  • Multiple years of AMSTI external evaluations conclude that on every test given by the State Department of Education, AMSTI Schools outperform matched non-AMSTI Schools, often dramatically. 2
  • Over 400,000 students in Grades Pre-K through 12 receive instruction by AMSTI certified teachers every school day, twice a day: once in math, once in science.
  • Math and science often move from least-liked subjects to the most-liked among students in AMSTI Schools.
  • AMSTI ranks as the number one priority of parents and school district board members and is the number one instructional priority for teachers.3
  • Many schools are on a waiting list, requesting to join AMSTI. Funding is the ONLY reason these schools cannot be served.
