Chapin High School is a community school with an established history that began in 1924. As the oldest high school in Lexington Richland School District Five, we are proud of our tradition of excellence.

Our School’s Goal:

  • We will maintain a safe, supportive, nurturing, environment that is conducive to working and learning.
  • We will provide challenging curricula with high expectations for learning. We will develop productive citizens who can solve problems and contribute to a global society.
  • We will recruit, hire, and retain a highly effective and diverse staff dedicated to helping students succeed in a competitive, global work place.
  • We will maximize the school’s resources of time, expertise, and finances.

We aRe Chapin!

“Scholarship and Leadership” are words on the seal of Chapin High School. Scholarship represents what students will take from our school. Leadership represents what students will give to the world. We expect all students to adhere to these ideals.

Each school has its own culture. Here at CHS, we have a rally cry, which originated from the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) program. The rally cry is “We aRe Chapin.” Why is the “R” capitalized? The emphasis on the “R” is to help students understand the importance of being Ready to learn, Respectful to others and Responsible to ourselves.

We have since added to the rally cry the phrase, “We are a thousand passions and one heartbeat.” The heart is an unofficial logo that signifies the power of knowing and following our passion. Each student is taught these principles on the first day of school and reminded of them each day.
