Benefits of Chess
A growing body of research is showing that chess improves kids' thinking and problem-solving skills as well as their math and reading test scores.
BENEFITS OF SILICON VALLEY CHESS SCHOOL
Studies have shown that students who play chess see huge scholastic benefits over non-chess players:
- 10% higher on reading tests
- 8% higher on reading assessments
- 7.4% higher on math tests
- 13% higher in critical thinking
- 35% higher in creative capacity
What the elite private academy and the inner-city public school both know is that "Chess makes you smart," a slogan of the U.S. Chess Federation (USCF).
Schools that encourage chess are reacting to studies like that of New York City-based educational psychologist Stuart Margulies, Ph.D., who in 1996 found that elementary school students in Los Angeles and New York who played chess scored approximately 10 percentage points higher on reading tests than their peers who didn't play.
