PS/MS 165

About PS/MS 165 Program

Welcome PS165 families to our new 2019-2020 school year with NYChessKids. We are looking forward to seeing our previous students and new faces that will be joining us for a great experience.



  • Beginners Class: Kids on this level will learn the basic moves of the game, like how to move the pieces, check & checkmate, stalemate, castling, promotion and they will work in different puzzles like checkmate in one.

  • Intermediate Class: Kids on this level will continue building up the basic level, learning combinations like double attack, fork, pin, x-ray and different kind of strategies to finish the games. Kids will work in many puzzles like checkmate in two.

  • Chess Team: This level is for kids that want to prepare and be ready for tournaments. We are planning to create a Chess Team in the school that would participate and represent the school in local tournaments. All kids would be able to be part of the team, there would be no restrictions. For more information, please CONTACT US.
