Chess is fun and can be learned quickly and easily. Studies have found that chess improves test results in reading, science, and math, and encourages growth in critical cognitive skills. Beyond academia, chess influences social behavior, including self esteem, respect for others, patience, and good sportsmanship. Students at all levels of skill are welcome!
