“My son is a senior at Chaparral and it has been an overwhelmingly positive experience The teachers have been great, the honors / AP curriculum is challenging and prepares them well, and the opportunities for things like arts / music and sports have been A+. Chaparral is a well rounded school and you’re going to get more than just great academics – we considered BASIS, but decided that an all around high school experience was really important! We have been very pleased at Chap and look forward to sending our younger children there over the next few years.” [GreatSchools.org]
