    Excellent school with excellent principal. Mr. Thigpen and his staff earned Duplin County's first Honor School of Excellence status. He is a great leader and his staff is unequaled.

    I am home schooling now but not because Chinquapin is a bad school but that it had wonderful caring knowledgeable people working together for the best interest of my child and we came to the conclusion that this was the best thing for now. My son had many issues to be addressed and the school system could not meet them but because of the care of the teachers and staff I was made aware of this.

    I really think Chinquapin is a great school. With a new principal this year which seems to be a great person as well as leader I look forward to seeing changes. I think there is always room for improvement with any school.I do however feel that they are short on teachers since there is a combination class this year as was the case last year as well. Which is for Kindergarden and first graders. They are however overall wonderful in keeping parents informed this year which may be due to the new principal Mr.Thigpen.
