Chapin's Superstars Charge Ahead
After weeks of after-school and weekend preparation, practice, and competition, Chapin School Princeton's academic teams are having great success in their competitions against other schools across the state and nation. This extension of Chapin's rigorous academic focus outside of the classrooms and into the real world helps students prepare in different, but equally important, ways for whatever the future might hold.
Chapin’s Quiz Bowl teams, including Chapin's nationally-ranked A Team, competed against several teams ranked in the top 100 in the country. Both teams did very well, never giving up and charging ahead. Our teams have at least three competitions in the next month and our A Team has already qualified for nationals.
On February 5th, Chapin's Science Olympiad team competed against 49 teams in the High Desert Invitational. They had great results.
5th Place Botany (Gavin and Adham)
6th place Food Science (Varun and Bryan)
7th place Mission Possible (Shriya and Sam)
9th place Mousetrap Vehicle (Gavin and Adham)
