We joined Vancouver Chess School after watching the movie.. "Finding Bobby Fischer". Our son, who was then learning chess online with a chess instructor based outside of Canada, was ready for more challenges and hence, we thought of looking for a local school. I got in touch with Maxim from Vancouver Chess Academy and he was very prompt in responding to my email. The courses have been going great and the weekly class tournaments along with CMA rated tournaments are helping our son understand the professional and competitive side of playing chess. We are very happy with the way their online classes are conducted. We can't recommend this school enough.

We are very happy to have found VCS. My Daughter (8 yr old) loves her classes and really looks forward to them, as well as spending time having fun and learning with the other kids that have an the same passion for the game as she does. The lessons , homework and the tournaments have been very instructive and its been amazing to watch her progress.

My kids enjoy learning and playing at Vancouver Chess School. Both the classes and tournaments are well-organized and the teachers are super friendly and patient. The kids are always encouraged to learn from their mistakes and inspired by the steady progress they made. The measurement to get promoted to a new level is strict, but it's a rewarding experience. We are very proud of them and appreciate for VCS' dedication.

This is a great place to let your child learn playing chess. The teachers are extremely friendly and experienced. The school is well organized with different levels and tournament opportunities, very professional. They have a computer system that allows kids to practice their skills or playing games with peers outside the class time all free. My son has been with VCS for more than a year and has greatly improved his skills. Back in March in Mr. Gyan's class, it happened to be my son's birthday, and he ended up receiving tons of birthday greeting messages from his classmates. It made his day, especially when no birthday party was possible due to Covid, he had the celebration in class! I would highly recommend VSC to everyone. Thank you so much.

VCS is a great chess school for kids. They have a lot of excellent programs, all well organized. The coaches are nice and experienced. My 8-year-old son has been there learning to play chess for more than 2 years, and he really enjoys the time with the coaches and friends. Thank you VCS for all the online courses and games, especially during this hard pandemic time.
