"Case Study: Esports in High Schools - Engaging Students and Improving Grades

Schools adopting esports as an official school sport or even an extra curricular is leading to engaging at-risk students and helping them find purpose in schools. The results have been outstanding leading to increased attendance by 10% and GPAs by 1.7.

Esports clubs have rapid growth, and impact the kids that need it. See it in action for yourself in this video."
