Great opportunities here with the national principal of the year! I believe there is something for everybody here. It can be a challenging school but being prepared for college a s/or the work force is critical and many teachers know that. For seniors, they treat you like the adults that you are.

I love being a part of the eagle family at Chapin High School! It is refreshing to be surrounded by teachers and administrators that are invested in the success of their students. The staff inspired me to pursue a career in education. Although I wish CHS was more diverse, I enjoyed attending this school thoroughly and could not have had a better high school experience.
I’m so grateful I got to go to a school as great as Chapin High School. My favorite part about the school is the countless amount of Honors and AP courses offered and the preparation that is given for college. We also have a lot of school spirit with several spirit weeks throughout the year and a vast attendance by students at football games. The athletics are also top notch as we are consistently state champions in cheerleading and both girl’s and boy’s soccer, and were state champions in baseball last year. In the senior class this year, many students were accepted to top notch school such as Clemson and USC Columbia.
