In their most recent review of America's Most Challenging High Schools, The Washington Post ranked NEST+m HS #7 in New York State and #142 out of 2300 top schools in the Nation!
This past weekend (5/9-5/10), the NEST+m chess team competed in the K-6 National Championships in Nashville, TN. In an outstanding performance, our 3rd graders won the National Championship in the K-3 division! In doing so, they proved that they are the top primary school team in the entire country. This tournament is considered more competitive than the Grade School Nationals held earlier in the year, since schools can combine their top players across grades. Our perennial rival, Dalton, brought 15 students to the section, while the Speyer Legacy School brought 10. We brought 5. The schools behind us include all of the top elementary programs in the country: Dalton, Speyer, Mission San Jose, Hunter, Collegiate, etc. You can see the team standings here:
This is the peak result for NEST+m chess since I came to the school. I think it is also the best result in school history. I could not be more proud of Charles Hua, Davis Zong, Robert Shibata, Eric Tang, and Jordan Leung. The 5 of them have trained in my classroom 4 days a week, competed in weekend tournaments, and studied chess at home. Their victory is the deserved product of sustained hard work.
Thank you for your support of chess at NEST+m.
