“Chess helps you to concentrate, improve your logic. It teaches you to play by the rules and take responsibility for your actions, how to problem solve in an uncertain environment.” - Garry Kasparov

The Polk Scholastic Chess program is a nonprofit organization that encourages academic growth through the game of chess. Rochelle supports these efforts by offering an after-school chess club that meets one day a week for our k-8 students. Students pay a membership fee to compete in the tournaments throughout the year, culminating at the Championship Tournament in the spring.
