The facilities are nice, the faculty are caring and the academics are good. The reason for my 2 stars is that the student body is well known for being unwelcoming to new students. The faculty acknowledge it and anyone from the surrounding communities will say that Chapin is known for being very cliquey. Even Chapin grads will say that new students have a very hard time. I wish that someone had warned me before I moved my family here. If I had known what I now know, I would NEVER have moved my family to Chapin. I hope this helps someone else from making the same mistake and putting their kids through what my kids are going through, my heart brakes for them.

My child went to Chapin High School their freshman year. Let me just say that I will not recommend this school to anyone. My child failed so many tests there because they were constantly pulling my child out of class. When I called the school about this, they said "We just wanted to talk to your child to make sure they were learning." Well my child was learning, until they pulled my child out of class every 5 minutes. If they really wanted my child to learn, they would've kept them in there so that they wouldn't be missing instruction. And another thing, whenever they gave my child a silent lunch, they told my child "You cant eat if we give you silent lunch." And my child was given silent lunches often. You know how long my child went without eating? You know how hard that is for a parent to witness? No, I will not recommend this school to anyone ever.

One of the best high schools in SC. Great small town atmosphere but the curriculum, and faculty of a much larger school. State championship band and cheerleading program. Great honors and AP program and very involved parents.

Outstanding faculty (70% have masters degrees). SAT scores are highest in the state. SAT team has won state championship every year since competition was started. Outstand athletic and extra-curricula programs. Navy JROTC is national champion. Fine and performing arts programs are excellent.
