#73 Opportunities to Lead at all Levels

At Shipley, we believe that opportunities for leadership at the elementary school level are critical to students’ self discovery, confidence, and identity in and out of school. Shipley provides a variety of opportunities for students to lead, including an elected student council in the fourth and fifth grades. In addition to building important life skills such as public speaking, we want students who will take action and feel a strong sense of community. Learn more about why leadership is important at Shipley by watching the second video on this page.
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
