We are committed to cultivating an environment where all members of the Shipley community are engaged, feel respected and valued, grow as individuals, strive for excellence, and have the opportunity to do their best work. We honor and value all differences and are committed to being a safe and inclusive environment for all people.
At Shipley, we believe in social justice and equity for all people. We value the basic rights of people and are committed to loving, respecting and honoring life. Over the past few years, Gender Sexuality Diversity (GSD) has been an important topic of conversation in our society and Shipley has taken a stance to ensure the safety and rights of our students. We created a policy regarding transgender and gender nonconforming students during the 2015-16 school year. The following link will lead to its purpose, policy and procedures. Shipley has also established unisex bathrooms in the lower, middle and upper school campuses for colleagues, students, their families and visitors to use at their discretion.
The Shipley School, a Pre-Kindergarten through 12 coeducational day school, is committed to educational excellence and dedicated to developing in each student a love of learning and a compassionate participation in the world. Through a strong college preparatory curriculum in the humanities and sciences, the school encourages curiosity, creativity, and respect for intellectual effort. Shipley upholds and promotes moral integrity, a sense of personal achievement and worth, and concern for others at school and in the larger community.
