Participation in chess has been shown to increase test scores in reading and math.
“Chess develops analytical and decision-making skills that can be applied to real life,” offered Mr. Morrison. “The game also encourages children to learn to focus, plan, and persevere through challenges, while building self-confidence.
“Kid Chess Online offers children the opportunity to gain all that learning from the comfort of their own home in a safe and friendly environment.”
Over the years, Kid Chess has worked with many state individual and team champions. This program is run with great success and popularity in many Cobb County, Fulton County, Gwinnett County, City of Atlanta, and private schools.
