PS 452

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 452 reach their full potential.
