Best Thing About Shipley: “When I think of Shipley, I think about my friends and teachers. One of my favorite things is conversations with my favorite teacher and our grade dean, Mr. Clement. He allows me to talk about my day and tell him how I’m feeling. One of the best things about Shipley is the teachers that challenge me and push me to work harder.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students: “Take risks! Talking to new people will help you learn more things about them and yourself. Push yourself to levels you didn’t think you could handle. It will be so worth it!”


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.
