An institution to house the mentally deficient. Overrun with children whose parents no longer want to have to put up with them. Synonymous with “hell-hole”. Even though considered a preparatory school, it is looked down upon by the more prestigious schools. Choate may be well-known around the world, but only because so many people go there, i.e. the 26% acceptance rate. Choate’s successes are not counted in their alumni or academic honors, but in the number of hot dogs consumed on average daily in the dining hall. There is a general lack of personal hygiene, both for the students, and their environment. Regardless of the socio-economic standard discipline is lacking, and the majority of alumni, well, you can’t really call them alumni, they never left the school. Choate has now gone from a 9-12 boarding school, to a care facility for the mentally ill and deficient. While this may all sound daunting, there is some silver-lining. At their last curling match, their star athlete managed to hold off the 956th ranked special Olympian, with his final toss, he managed to overcome his opponent, setting a school record for least losses in a season, making his record 1-64. He shattered the previous record by over 50 losses, which was the chess team, which went on a record-setting season in ’87, their record standing at 1-134. Choate, while not renowned for their academics or their athletics, may be the choice for your child, if you just don’t want to see him anymore.
"Did you hear about that alumnus from Choate?"
"You mean the one who was caught selling pot to 3-year-olds?"
"Yeah"
"I almost went to Choate, but then decided that I wanted to get out of Juvie and change my life!"
"Way to make the good decision!"

Choate Rosemary Hall, located in Wallingford, CT, is one of the most prestigious and well-known preparatory schools in the nation. A boarding school of around 850, Choate attracts students from all over the world, enabling there to be a diverse student body.

Choate has educated some of America's most prominent, including President John F. Kennedy, Michael Douglas, Paul Giamatti, Adlai Stevenson, Herb Kohler, Glenn Close, Jamie Lee Curtis, Edward Albee, Ivanka Trump, Amanda Hearst, John Dos Passos, etc.

With two I.M. Pei-designed buildings, beautiful architecture, a 400+ acre campus, dedicated faculty, extensive resources, strong alumni network, and one of the most comprehensive and advanced secondary school curricula, Choate Rosemary Hall continues to be one of the most well-regarded first-tier prep schools.

Despite falling behind in name recognition, prestige, reputation, academics, and athletics, Deerfield Academy is Choate's traditional rival.
Though few people are familiar with "Deerfield Academy" outside the boarding school world, Choate Rosemary Hall is well-known by people all over the world.

Choate Rosemary Hall scholar-athletes were able to defeat Deerfield in all varsity contests in 2005 in the annual Deerfield Day athletics contest. It was the first time a SWEEP had been achieved in both schools' histories.

Located in a quaint New England town, Choaties are in direct walking distance to eateries (Italian, American, Japanese, Chinese, diners, fast food, etc.), cafes, retailers (clothes, groceries, hair salons, etc.), a movie theater, etc.

Deerfield, on the other hand, literally does not have any stores or commercial outlets of any kind. They must entertain themselves, instead, by "looking towards the hills." Some Deerfield students interpret this by getting high in the woods down by the river.

Choaties are known to be scholars, athletes, citizens, gentlemen/ladies, intellectual, sociable, and fun. Few parties would be complete without a good-sized contingent of Choate students.

One of the most prestigious and well-known prep school on the East Coast. The best of the best students get into Choate. Choate offers a variety of clubs, sport teams, and course selections.

Choate does a great job on admitting a diverse student body. Yes, there are several kids that come from affluent families at Choate, but there are also students who earn scholarships. It is a "cooler", more "lay-back" version of rival Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. (Deerfield is known to be a prep school that contains mostly preppy, white snobs.) People from all over the world know what Choate Rosemary Hall is.

Choate is also one of the first schools on the East Coast to have dorms that are completely eco friendly and waste minimal energy. Choate is also implementing an iPad program in the Fall of 2012 which requires all students to have an iPad 2 or higher in class.

The cute town center of Wallingford, CT is less than a mile away. Students can grab a bite to eat whenever they want.

A beautiful, free spirited school: Choate Rosemary Hall (CHOATE).

GO CHOATE!
I was so impressed with Daniel when he told me he got into Choate.

Many scholars around the world attend Choate because its known to be one of the top schools in the nation.

Having a task at work reassigned to you due to a co-worker skirting personal responsibilities just before an impending deadline, typically before vaction or sick leave such that disciplinary actions will be minimal upon their return to work.
Amy: Why did you present that report on Friday? Wasn't that Chris's project?
David: Yeah, but he was "sick" the day before it was due so I got choated. He was probably just hungover ...

A prestigious prep school in Connecticut. A much higher quality institution than Trinity Pawling....and you people complaining about it have no idea what youre talking about. Just be glad your school is co-ed.

Me: Never say that again.

A mind numbing, negative environment that promotes conformity and shrewd New England preppy elitism. The student body is composed largely of social climbing, vapid, over-priveleged sheep. The administration is worthless. NO WORSE than Deerfield––possibly less so––but shitty nonetheless.
"I hope I never again cross paths with 90% of these people after graduating from Choate" ---an observation that an emotionally perceptive individual might make regarding his peers.
