Chess Club is open to all grades and all skill levels. This club meets weekly after school and is managed by a professional chess organization (Silver Knights Chess) that partners with school to teach chess. The weekly chess club meetings are broken up into two portions. First, the coach teaches a lesson. The lessons begin with rules and basic strategy, and as the weeks go on they become more advanced. For the second half of each meeting, the students are broken up into pairs to play a ladder game. Each player is paired against an opponent of similar skill.
