Most of our students are selected from all over the country, with the possibility to be lodged in the school dormitory.
The dormitory is situated in the same complex as Teaching and Learning building in the beauty spot within Moscow.
The school was created in 1963 in collaboration with Moscow State University with the initiative of the world-famous mathematician, member of Soviet Academy of Sciences, Andrei Kolmogorov.
Together with Kolmogorov, the initial idea belonged to academician Isaak Kikoin, rector of Moscow University Ivan Petrovskiy, president of SAS Mstislav Keldysh. It was named FMSH-18(in Russian short for Physical and Mathematical school number 18).
The founders wanted to give students from rural and remote areas an opportunity to receive good both physical and mathematical education in a level playing field.
Kolmogorov and Petrovsky personally participated in interviewing students as a part of admissions process.
