Berkeley Chess School

Chess is fun, and can be learned quickly and easily!
Studies have found that chess improves 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 sportsmanship. 
Boards and sets are provided for our classes, which include a combination of instruction and supervised play. 

The Berkeley Chess School is a nonprofit organization offering chess instruction from kindergarten through high school since 1982. We are an affiliate of the US Chess Federation. Over the years our students have won many state championships and several have gone on to become National Masters, FIDE Masters, and International Masters.
