Playing chess can enhance skills that students can take with them throughout life such as strategy, critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, perseverance and calculated risk-taking.

OCPS is excited to announce that they have partnered with ChessKid, the world’s number one chess site for kids, to provide every student and teacher access to ChessKid thru Launchpad. Students can learn and play chess online with tactics, puzzles, videos, lessons, and real-time chess matches.
