Going to chinquapin was one of the best things that could of ever happened to me. It helped me become the person who I am. I can't think of another place with a staff as great as Chinquapin's where I was loved and supported every step of the way.

If you want your child to go to an excellent school this one rivals the famous St. Johns. It is a wonderful opportuinty for your child. Grades 6-12. It is a college prep school that is privately funded for inner city youth in Houston.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
