Meet our Student Ambassadors

Meet Savod '24

Years at Shipley:
3 years

Activities & Positions:
I have had the ability to be involved in being on the soccer team, the basketball team, and the volleyball team this year. I have been an active member of the basketball and soccer team for two of the three years that I have gone here, and this year I started on the volleyball team.

Favorite Club:
My favorite club is a tie between the board game club with Dr. Kinsella, and the card game club with Senora Marracao. I like them both for the same reason, and that is because we can still have fun, but we don’t have to do it with our computers.

Favorite Class:
My favorite class at Shipley is STEAM. I like that I have the ability to code and learn that way.

What special moment has stood out to you over the past year?
A special moment for me this year was being able to go to the diversity conference. I liked being able to meet other people in other schools and form those bonds that I have at my school with people I would not normally talk to.

What are you most looking forward to about Upper School?
I look forward to the Upper School clubs and the opportunity to make more decisions for myself and to gain the freedom of driving soon.

Advice to New Students:
I would say that you need to be nice to everyone and that being yourself is ok. If you are new here, make sure that you are a positive member of the community. One tradition that would be very good to take part in is Swamp Night.
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.
