I love Chapin High! The faculty and staff are very supportive. When your feeling down, you know you can go to any teacher and they will be there for you. I also love my family at Chapin, the student body. We are all at every football game, (even though we are not very good) basketball game, and cheer competition. We also have an excellent student council. In fact, according to varsitybrands.com, Chapin High School has the best student government in the Nation! At Chapin, we are one body with one heartbeat. Everyone at Chapin truly does have "the heart of a champion."

I love the community in this school! Chapin is a very warm, welcome, and safe learning environment. The classes here offer hands-on learning and interactive activities. There are also many clubs, fine arts programs, and classes that offer wide varieties of school and community involvement that are great opportunities to meet new people and explore many different career paths.
Chapin High School was an excellent school when I graduated in 2019. The staff were very supportive of all students and worked hard on ensuring all did well. I can attest to this, as I was a student peer-tutor for failing students for two years and thus worked closely with the teachers in all fields of study. The school offers many opportunities, ranging from College Prep to high-level AP courses in various classes.
Chapin's prowess in academics and sports is a combination hardly seen in any schools in South Carolina. It is a platform that works hard to build you up. However, you must make the effort to improve and educate yourself as well. Classes, Advanced Placement courses, in particular, are geared towards preparing you for college. As a current college Freshman, I was completely readied for difficult classes, lectures, and labs that were expected in my major.
