THE KNIGHT SCHOOL

Why should your child play chess? That's easy! Chess is fun. It is also been proven that when a child masters the skill of chess their academic confidence grows over time. Success in chess is often a springboard to classroom success! The "cause and effect" lessons learned in chess translate to the child and their ability to reason and think.

Many studies have confirmed that chess increases standardizes test scores such as the ACT and SAT. It also teaches children the importance of winning and losing and good sportsmanship conduct. That's why The Knight School emphasizes that losing well is far more important than winning. The Knight School has after-school clubs in Birmingham schools throughout the Metro Area!
