Weibel Chess believes that through positive rewards we can excite and stimulate our players to strive to improve their skills. Among the accolades our students receive are chess titles and rankings, membership on our Honor’s Roll which also provides them with a special cap and an Elite Jacket for our top Varsity players. A few unique individuals are inducted into our Hall of Fame with their name engraved on a plaque that hangs in the school office. We believe that this positive reinforcement for their successes explains why we have become a nationally renowned program and one of the largest individual public school chess programs in the country with over 200 students each year.
