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 2nd, 3rd, 4th and now 5th graders!

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.
