The Chapin School
100 E End Ave, New York, NY 10028
Founded as a primary school by Maria Bowen Chapin under the name of Miss Chapin's School for Girls, this school was incorporated as an elementary and secondary school in 1925. In 1928, it moved from two brownstone houses on East 57th Street to its own building on East End Avenue at 84th Street. The school assumed its current name in 1934. The course of study emphasizes the liberal arts, the sciences and technology. Pupils study Spanish in grades 1-4 before committing to a course of study in Spanish, French or Chinese in grade 5, with Latin added in grade 7 and Greek in grade 9. A laptop immersion program in grade 6 provides computers to all students, and courses incorporate laptops in activities and discussions. Elective courses and Advanced Placement options provide opportunities for study at an advanced level. A varied dance program begins in kindergarten, while drama joins the curriculum in grade 2. Other noteworthy offerings include a senior individual study program, special off-campus term programs, volunteer community service, and an academic and extracurricular exchange through the eight-school New York City consortium.
