      I’m sorry you both had a hard time growing up in Chappaqua, but I have to completely disagree. I graduated Greeley a few years ago, and I miss it. I wouldn’t trade my experience growing up in Chapp for the world. Sure, there will be some privileged kids who have their parents fight their battles for them, but the vast majority are friendly, open-minded, and intellectual kids. I think a fair criticism is that the town is very liberal (I am too so I didn’t mind) largely because of the Jewish population but there are certainly a good number of Republicans. There isn’t a lot of diversity which is definitely a negative. That aside, the friends I have made in my time growing up in Chappaqua will be my friends for life. I was not in the most popular group in high school but it didn’t matter, everyone was respectful and friendly to each other (of course with a few exceptions). I also lived in a much smaller house than all of my friends but that didn’t matter either. If anyone is considering moving to Chappaqua and raising their kids there I would definitely encourage it. The vast majority of graduates from Greeley have warm and positive feelings towards their hometown so please don’t let a few people who have had a bad experience deter you.
