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!


Boards and sets are provided for our classes. Reduced fees are available to low-income families upon request. The first child in a family is full price; additional siblings are half price. The class minimum is 10 and the maximum is 20. Enrollments are accepted in the order received.


Note: The first parent to volunteer to assist the chess class will receive free chess for your child this session and hours counted towards your SPN volunteer hours. The volunteer will escort the children from the yard to the Science Lab, wait for chess class to begin, and, when class concludes, escort the children who have not been picked up to Share & Care.  Contact the Berkeley Chess School at 510-843-0150or email
