Partnership Brings Math Program to San Antonio Schools

The Northside Independent School District is joining forces with the MIND Research Institute to help students understand mathematical concepts. MIND's ST Math program provides teachers with visual tools to break down math lessons with content challenges, puzzles and games.

ST Math will be available to 80 elementary schools in the Northside ISD. The program takes a personalized learning approach where students are exposed mathematical puzzles and must demonstrate "mastery" of the concepts at each level the program.

This partnership brings a new approach to math instruction to San Antonio’s largest school district. Over 100,000 students across more than 350 schools in Texas are already using the program.

"This program was selected by a diverse group of educators who know and value the needs of all K-5 students in Northside ISD. Building a solid foundation in the primary grades is critical and the scaffolding offered in ST Math will help set up students for success," said Patti Sanchez, executive director of elementary instruction at Northside.
