BSI Chess Team


The BSI Chess Team grows bigger and stronger each year thanks to dedicated parent volunteers, especially coach Vlad!

There are several ways to get your kids involved in chess at BSI:
  • participate in the chess enrichments during school hours

  • Chess helps foster creativity, logical and critical thinking
  • Chess encourages and rewards those who persevere and work hard
  • Chess improves concentration and memory
  • Chess enhances reading and math skills
  • Chess forces to think strategically and foresee the consequences
  • On average, students who play chess score 10 percentage points higher on reading tests than their peers who don’t
