Best Thing About Shipley:  “For me and many of my classmates, Shipley means support. While I have always felt supported in the classroom, whether through peer dialogue or a teacher's willingness to meet outside of class, I have found an equal amount of support outside the classroom. I have been able to express my interests and goals in groups that I have joined, full of people who share my enthusiasm for athletics, service, and music. One of the best things that I have experienced at Shipley did not even happen on campus! This past November, after unfortunately losing in the state semi-finals, I received countless emails, texts, and calls from my peers and teachers, saying they had watched the game on live stream and congratulating the team on its hard work. Though disappointed in the loss, I was honored that so many people had taken the time to watch the game and proud to be representing such a supportive community.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students: “Take advantage of everything Shipley has to offer. Whether it is a unique club, an interesting minor class, or a sport you have never tried, you will not find yourself disappointed in your new experience. In other words, do everything! You only have four years!”
