Our students are identified as gifted and talented. They attend our school by the selection process which includes grades, testing and evaluations by teachers and parents. Our students come from a varied background and includes all socio-economic groups. Their interests are diverse but they all seem to agree that chess is fun and we believe it improves their strategic thinking. They are learning to defer judgment and implement wait time (thinking) before acting. They are also learning to observe carefully and consider possible outcomes before making moves. These skills help make better students and ultimately better leaders for tomorrow.
