Best Thing About Shipley: “When I think of Shipley, I think about the bonds with friends that stick with me the most.  I think of the friendships and the memories that I’ve had with the people I have grown up with.”

One Piece of Advice for New Students: “Stress is inevitable when it comes to growing up. When you feel stressed, there are people at Shipley that can help. If you don't feel comfortable talking to an adult, talk to a friend. Everyone, including the faculty, staff, and students are here to help you. Get involved! Shipley has so much to offer, and you have countless opportunities to make the most of your experience. Join a club you have never tried or run for Student Government. Shipley is the perfect environment to take risks and venture outside of your comfort zone.”
