chess training

A popular CCA among intellectually motivated students, chess will stretch your brain in ways regular schoolwork can’t!

“Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment.”

- Garry Kasparov, 13th World Chess Champion

Every lesson is divided into three parts.
