Best Thing About Shipley:
“The community is so caring and welcoming. I recall a car accident I got into over spring break.  I was amazed at how many folks reached out; faculty, Head of School, and my softball coach to check-in.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students:

“Try new things even if it scares you!  I was nervous to try out for the musical freshman year.  It has helped me make friends and grow in confidence.  Go to the community events: Swamp Night, Empty Bowls, Super Saturday, and Homecoming to name a few.  These are the cornerstone of Shipley.  These events allow you to immerse yourself in the school atmosphere.”
