"Chess is fun and can be learned quickly and easily. Studies have found that chess helps improve test results in reading, science, and math, and produces growth in critical cognitive skills. Beyond academia, chess influences social behavior including self esteem, respect for others, patience, and good manners. And did we mention, it's FUN?!? Boards and sets are provided for our classes. Classes are one hour in length, with 20 minutes of instruction and 40 minutes of play. The Berkeley Chess School is a non-profit organization offering chess instruction from kindergarten through high school for over 25 years. It is an affiliate of the US Chess Federation.
