|"When people ask me about my school, it's always difficult to try and express what Chinquapin is. To those who have never experienced it, no words can ever give them a true sense of Chinquapin. I had grown up hearing about Chinquapin from family members, so from experience, I know that despite everything they told me, nothing made me appreciate my school so much as being a part of it. Being a part of this school, I feel like I'm a part of something so much more than myself, so much more than even my education. I am helping to break stereotypes that surround all the students who attend this school. Through Chinquapin, we are given the opportunity to change the public's perception of us. Chinquapin's belief in us, instills belief in ourselves and that is something only a truly great place can do."

|"My first two years at Chinquapin were pivotal in my development into the person I am today. It was then that my classmates, teachers, parents, and upperclassmen instilled a sense of confidence and motivation in me. This nurturing environment was drastically different from my less rigorous elementary school experience. For the first time, I was surrounded by positive influences that could help better my potential as both a student and as a person. As my years have passed by at Chinquapin, I see myself becoming a role model for the younger students. These have made me strong enough to spend a year in Brazil away from everything and everyone I have ever known. I know that this experience will change my future both academically and personally. Thank You, Chinquapin, for everything you have done for me. I look forward to giving back to you!"

As time goes by, I will remember my experiences and life lessons from my time at Chinquapin. Chinquapin Prep gives you everything, from love and care, to education, and the skills necessary to go to college and succeed."
