The Rochester Accelerated Math Program (RAMP) is designed to meet the needs of high ability math students who have been identified through teacher recommendation, parent input, and standardized testing. Testing begins in 5th grade and students can be accelerated starting in 6th grade. Students are re-evaluated each year to ensure proper placement.
In addition, the University of Minnesota offers math classes for highly gifted math students in Rochester. UMTYMP stands for the University of Minnesota Talented Youth Math Program. This program is provided by the UM for students gifted and highly motivated in mathematics. Students must test into this program in the spring of the year.
