PS 290Q - A.C.E. Academy for Scholars at the Geraldine Ferraro Campus

55-20 Metropolitan Avenue Ridgewood, NY 11385

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with PS 290Q! They create real-world connections using a cross-disciplinary approach through project-based learning to foster our scholars’ independence, perseverance, and self-expression. The classes are open to all PS 290Q K-5 students, from beginner to advanced levels. The lessons plans will be adjusted based on the level of the students.

  • For beginner levels: The students will learn the basics of chess and build a solid foundation needed to move ahead - from the movements and values of the pieces, to tactics and different checkmate patterns.

  • For intermediate levels: The students will have a better understanding of the patterns, tactics, and principles in the opening, middle game, and end game.

  • For advanced levels: The students will focus on the strategizing, thinking process, and have a deep understanding of different openings and endgame techniques.
