The Chapin School Reviews

Though Chapin is a diverse and open community and has progressed to take more active stands social justice issues over the years, there is always room to improve. I think we need to focus more on action in our community. I have been thinking about this for some time, and I think Chapin should hold its own high-school wide diversity conference during a town hall meeting slot in which we would simulate some of the same discussions and activities from the Student Diversity Leadership Conference for all of us to experience. I think that, if that meeting were successful, it would be eye-opening to then include other inter-school students in this discussion, and host our own Diversity day. Also, as an individual I will of course continue to try to make our community as safe a space as possible both by voicing my own experiences and also, as an ally to other marginalized groups, by giving space for others to use their own voices.

When our lower school daughter gets within 50 feet, she runs to the front door. The school is filled with friendly, well behaved girls. As for diversity, about 35% of the class is "of color," which includes African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans (with sizable contingents of parents whose own parents or grandparents left China, India, or one of the Muslim countries). In other words, Chapin has deliberately spread beyond its WASP history. A large majority of parents are highly educated, disciplined, understated, and working at a high level in finance, banking, and law. At the same time, Chapin has the 2nd largest endowment in NYC, and there is significant financial aid. Some would prefer a more middle class group of parents, but Chapin has been a great, great place for our daughter.
Going to Chapin is the best decision I have ever made. The community is extremely supportive. There's always some to talk to as we have an "open door policy." Thus, in terms of social and mental health, I think the school does a good job.
Academically, however, I think it can do better. Yes, Chapin does have a rigorous academic program and offers many courses so a student can pursue her interests. However, in terms of SAT prep, it falls behind a bit.

Nevertheless, it's great place for character building and learning real life skills. I am definitely proud to be a Chapin student.
