Chess clubs have recently become popular in schools. More and more schools understand the added value of hosting a chess club, and many parents are asking their children's schools to open a chess club. Chess offers many academic benefits.

At Ilahia, a Grand Master's chess club functions with good participation from students. Research and studies have shown a direct connection between playing chess and analytic skill development. Chess helps children develop focus, concentration and observation skills. Children learn that if they don't watch what is happening, they won't be able to respond to it, no matter how smart they are. Careful observation also helps children learn to strategize and plan ahead.

Beyond academic skills, chess helps children develop social skills, learn to respect their opponents, learn how to handle defeat, and develop teamwork skills as they compete together as a school team against other schools.
