Chappaqua

Chappaqua is a hamlet and census designated place in the Town of New Castle, in northern Westchester County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, following a major revision to the delineation of its boundaries by the Census Bureau, the population was 1,436. At the 2000 census, with very different census-defined boundaries, Chappaqua had a population of 9,468.[7]


Around 1928, Robert E. Bell Middle School,[12] known at the time as Horace Greeley School, was built. The present day Horace Greeley High School was built in 1957. Robert E. Bell Middle School has the bulldog as its mascot while Horace Greeley High School has the quaker as its mascot. The three elementary schools in Chappaqua were completed over a twenty-year period: Roaring Brook School[13] in 1951, Douglas G. Grafflin[14] in 1962, and Westorchard[15] in 1971.


In 2003, after the opening of the new middle school, Seven Bridges, and the moving of the fifth grade from Chappaqua's elementary schools to the middle schools, the district added a full day kindergarten.[16][17]
