Blue Magic: NHA Chess

At New Hope Academy, chess has been successfully integrated into the curriculum, students learn that chess is much more than a game; it is an interdisciplinary blend of competition, fun, art, and science. By approaching chess academically, students gain essential skills for chess and life.
