Statistics is usually considered to be its own branch of science. However, statistics also refers to a branch of mathematics. It depends on the context you hear it in. If you hear it in your math class, they're probably referring to the mathematical methods of statistics.
Probability is another branch of mathematics which is often used as a tool in statistics. However, probability can be calculated without the use of the mathematical methods of statistics, and thus is not simply a subset of statistics.
