[×]

AdmissionsQuest school reviews function as a legitimate resource for families and students researching independent schools. Posting a review is limited to students and parents/guardians who attended or had a student attend the school within the last three years. Our goal is to have reviews provide feeling and insight into the school experience. Each reviewer is limited to one post at each school.

To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:

Be:

Honest
Thoughtful
Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation

Avoid:

Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content. All submissions become the property of AdmissionsQuest which reserves the right to determine publication.

History

Chatham Hall is a leader in girls’ education. The School strives to inspire integrity, academic excellence and global perspective in tomorrow’s leaders.

Chatham Hall, an independent, all-girls boarding and day high school located in Chatham, Virginia, has earned since its founding in 1894 a national and international reputation for its broad and strong college-preparatory program and its global educational community. At the center of the School is its honor code and strong Episcopal heritage. Its alumnae have earned positions of prominence in politics, business, education, medicine, engineering, and the arts, including the renowned painter Georgia O’Keeffe and Pulitzer Prize winning poet Claudia Emerson.

Chatham Hall’s unique programming includes annual service trips to South Africa and Cuba, the iPad Program, and the Leader-in-Residence Program, which brings world leaders to campus to meet with students. Recent Leaders in Residence have included Gloria Steinem, Jane Goodall; the late Benazir Bhutto, Prime Minister of Pakistan; Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the current and first female President of Liberian (and recent winner of the Nobel Peace Prize); and Nancy Brinker, founder of The Race for the Cure.
