International Math Competitions, like Mathematic without Border, give our students an opportunity to measure their skills against a global competition. Since our Silk Road International Students have performed well in recent years, it gives them confidence in their abilities and shows them that they have everything they need to pursue excellence in all their undertakings.
Our SRIS students experience the joy of training hard and see that they are able to to become better Math students, who can perform on the same level as their international peers.

Final Math round in Bulgaria
The first three rounds are held remotely, in the contestant’s school. The best students qualify for the end round in Bulgaria, where they face contestant’s from all over that world, and meet peers from 20 countries for a shared experience.
This stay is not just Mathematics competition of course. Social events, sight seeing trips and cultural events make the trip worth while.
Putting Kyrgyzstan on the map
Who doesn’t hate it, when people in other countries are completely unaware of where Kyrgyzstan is and what students in the Kyrgyz Republic can achieve. Participation in international Mathematics competitions, like Mathematics without Border, puts our students in contact with students from all over the world.
This does not only improve their cultural awareness, but establishes global connections and makes more people around the world aware of the beauty of Kyrgyzstan and the kindness of its people.
Ambassador to the Kyrgyz Republic
Our students represent our school at the Mathematics without Borders competition, but they also become ambassadors for the Kyrgyz culture, representing the Kyrgyz Republic at social events and the cultural evening.

Many of the contestants from Silk Road International School have achieved medals in previous years and qualified for the final round in Bulgaria.
Attending the finals is one of the highlights of the school year. The group travels attended by a teacher and meets students from all over the world.
COVID didn’t stop us
