Chess @ Anderson

Welcome to Chess at the P.S. 334 Anderson School. We are excited to announce our new partnership with NY Scholastic Chess Club. For in-depth information, please visit the Chess Program’s website.

NYSCC is a company founded by Ivan Dirkx who has been teaching chess in New York City for 15 years and has been at Anderson for the past 7 years. In that time we have seen the program nearly triple in size with our students being some of the best chess players not only in the city but nationally as well.  Ivan has the unique experience of having grown up in New York City playing scholastic chess at a top level with some of the nation’s most respected instructors.  With that comes the understanding of what is needed to be successful as a student and teacher and establish a prosperous program.

We look forward to continued success on a city, state and national level!

The Anderson School will be hosting these upcoming chess tournaments this school year:
