    "Our school has the typical divide between the popular crowd and everyone else. This year we have seen a rise in the number of openly gay/lesbian students at our school but most people aren't very accepting of that. There is a lot of student involvement in sports and going to support our teams but sometimes it gets a little out of hand. There is a lot of peer pressure from some students...we even had some kids show up to a football game drunk. There is little to no racial diversity at this school. The majority is rich, white kids who push people around because they feel like they don't have to answer to anyone."

    "I think that Chapin High School HAD some great teachers, but as far as I know, they all left after I graduated. From what I've gathered, the teachers are awesome but the administration is awful. Administration micromanages teachers, which is driving most of the good ones away. Why would you have an administrator with no experience in a subject such as math or science hire a math or science teacher?! I'm sorely disappointed in the school's drift from academic standout to puppet show in the few years following my graduation."

    "All of the teachers know what they're doing and explain the topics to the best of their abilities. The grading styles differ from teacher to teacher. Some do total points and some use the regular grading option. Most of the teachers are approachable but some seem stand-off-ish and rude."

    "You have some awesome, super involved parents and some really awful helicopter ones. For a school that primarily caters to an upper middle class area, I think that the school does entirely too much to push less intelligent, less motivated wealthier kids through the system because their influential parents insist upon it. But hey, you can't really say much when it's the principal desperately trying to save face."

    "Our school environment is very different. Like most high schools, everything revolves around Friday night football games but we have little to no bullying and most everyone is accepting to students who are different. I would choose this school again because the environment is very laid back in terms of the student environment."
