Why Chess?

Research shows, there is a strong correlation between learning to play chess and academic achievement. In 2000, a landmark study found that students who received chess instruction scored significantly higher on all measures of academic achievement, including math, spatial analysis, and non-verbal reasoning ability (Smith and Cage, 2000).

  • “Visual Stimuli tend to improve memory more than any other stimuli …Chess is definitely an excellent memory exerciser, the effects of which are transferable to other subjects where memory is necessary.” ~John Artise – Chess and Education

  • “Pupils who learn chess enjoy a significant increase in their reading skills.” ~Dr. Margulies – The Effect of Chess on Reading Scores - NY
