Reflections on your time at Shipley:
While being at Shipley I have experienced many ups and downs. But I have come to realize this is a main part of life. The problem in front of you can help you grow as a person only if you let it. It can be very easy to feel overwhelmed, but Shipley has helped to lessen that feeling. Shipley academics definitely weren’t a walk in the park, but they taught me critical thinking skills and time management. Shipley academics have helped me reach a newfound level of confidence academically. Sports were also very fun, but also challenging. The class setting is always bright and a very good place to learn. Overall, I am very thankful for the Shipley community and it is definitely a place I won’t forget.
