  • Lower School Insider's Look - Tuesday, April 16

    Tuesday, April 16
    9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

    Shipley’s Lower School program inspires curiosity and nurtures in children a lifelong love of learning. With a strong academic foundation, students explore and develop their interests in creative, engaging ways, learning to think critically, develop empathy, and build social and emotional awareness. Come and learn more from our Head of Lower School, Tim Lightman, and various members of the Lower School Administrative team, as they talk about why that foundation is so important for your child's educational journey, and what it means to truly know each student as an individual. Students will also share their reflections on how Shipley is more than a school. There will be a tour following the short program.
