PS 199

We are excited to announce that NYSCC will be running chess curriculum classes at PS 199 on the Upper West Side for all students from K-5!

Students will learn the basics of chess including:

  • rules
  • strategies
  • tactics
  • as well as build off knowledge they already have about chess.

Chess is an incredible tool to help increase a child's focus, concentration and ability to problem solve: numerous studies have shown an increase in standardized test scores among students who take a weekly curriculum chess class. We hope that our chess program will help the students of PS 199 reach their full potential.
