I.S. 318 is such a strong, localized program, but a lot of the members go off to different high schools. Is there one area high school with a particularly good program that a lot of them tend to feed into?
Yes, there is definitely one high school in particular that many of the I.S. 318 chess players choose to attend and that’s Edward R. Murrow High School, which has one of the best high school chess teams in the country. For those I.S. 318 chess team members that choose to go to high schools that don’t have strong chess programs but want to continue playing competitive chess, they have the opportunity to compete in open tournaments all around the city practically every weekend.
