Great community! Very considerate and nice people everywhere. Not to busy, but is nearby places such as DC and Fairfax for easy accessibility to the city and job opportunities. I have recently finished my education at Chantilly High School and have made many memories at the school, the local shopping center, the local mall, and even the houses of my friends. My neighbors are all so nice and we often make small talk across the fences. Overall, I love the social community we have at Chantilly and the diversity we have of locations, restaurants, and people.

I like the diversity in Chantilly Virginia, as I am aware of many various cultural practices and beliefs. I love how we are near Shenandoah National park (especially because I like hiking) and are only about an hour away from our nation's capital. However, one aspect of my neighborhood that I would like to see change is the amount of pressure put on most high school students to obtain all phenomenal grades and get into only top-tier colleges. That being said, I love the strong school system we have here, as I have been lucky enough to maintain a strong education ever since elementary school and my love of learning has only grown over the years.
Chantilly is honestly a great place to live in with a strong educational system. I live in Fairfax County which is one of the top counties in the U.S, and honestly deserves the title it has. The school system I have is very organized and well pieced for each student. Though, the diversity could be a lot better. You see in this area a lot of Caucasian and Asians and not very many people of color and other races. It makes it seems that the county and the city only thrive with those races though, the small amount of minorities are very welled educated and deserve more recognition. All in all, Chantilly is a good place to live in education wise.
