I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chop Point School. The small class sizes, caring staff, campus location and superior academics are above and beyond many other private schools we researched. The tuition prices are lower compared to other private schools but the above average teaching and learning

As a former student of Chop Point I can say without any hesitation that it is a school with experienced staff who not only educate their students at the highest level, but care for each of them deeply. Its academics, sports and arts programs gave me the diligence to not only obtain one advanced degree,

After graduating from there, I went on to obtain a BS in Biology, at Gordon College, an MA in Medical Sciences at the University of Boston Medical School and a MD at University of Vermont College of Medicine. Chop Point School and its teachers gave me the foundation I needed for the years of hard work that were ahead of me. I hold true to the principles they instilled in me today, as I am now back in Maine practicing as an Emergency Medicine physician. Read less

I had concerns about the possibility of the school taking an antiscience stance. I was assured by the principal that the school does not and I have nothing to worry about. To my shock and dismay, my daughter came home with her history book which I had a look at. It states in the beginning that "Evolution
... Read more is false and everyone who believes in it only does so because they don't want to believe in the bible". This is Creationism and that surely is not science. The history content of the book was not only wrong, but terribly wrong. This material will not enrich anyone advancing their education, but will only be obstacles to be abandoned later. I have a degree in history and the choice for this book is an insult to all academics around the world. Being a private school it pretty much can teach whatever it wants, but as adults we have a moral obligation to provide the current understanding in all fields of knowledge. The history program is appalling and the science is nonexistent there. Read less

At the heart of Chop Point are its teachers, all of whom work for embarrassingly token salaries, and many who left behind more lucrative teaching positions when they joined Chop Point. Without exception and with a sense of mission, Chop Point teachers approach their work with servant s hearts rather
... Read more than as authoritarian figures. Chop Point School is a private school, but it has never been considered elitist. A comparable education at many of Maine s notable private institutions can be expected to cost two-, three- or even four-times as much as the modest tuition Chop Point charges. First opened in 1987 on the grounds of a world-class summer camp, a compelling characteristic of Chop Point School is its small class sizes, with each grade limited to twelve students. This intimate setting fosters the friendships between teachers and students that is a hallmark of Chop Point. Read less

i personally attend chop point. I absolutely love it but unfortunately i might leave next year, because there just aren't enough Ap classes or clubs. I am not a very sportsy person so for me to go to a school where the only activities are sports its a downer. However i absolutely LOVE the teachers and

I think that that is really important to mention because at most public schools smart people are always left out and made fun of and at chop point its the opposite if you are smart people applaud you(not literally).

I would highly recommend Chop Point to anyone (except maybe special needs children). I have three children attending the school. All three are doing extremely well and love school. We have found this to be a night and day experience next to the public schools. The classes are small, the teachers are

The atmosphere at Chop Point is not rigorous but loving and caring - which produces the same in the children. I find this is an excellent environment for my children to learn. The public school was a bad experience for them (more from the ciriculum and administration than from the other children). The public schools confused them-causing dissension at home. The biggest and totally unexpected result of our children attending Chop Point is a much more harmonous home and more respectful children. Read less

I have a daughter that goes to Chop Point and she has done very well there. I thoroughly appreciate the individual attention due to the smaller classes, which public schools don't have, but the one thing that tends to be a challenge for her is the fact that they don't have clubs of any sort other
