From The Shipley School

Through a strong college-preparatory curriculum in the humanities and sciences, our 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.

We teach with the individual in mind, so all types of learners are able to thrive. While students may experience our curriculum in unique ways, a Shipley education remains rooted in a fundamental idea: We believe in a rigorous educational standard, one designed to foster not only creativity and individual thinking, but a sense of preparedness and emotional development that equips students for success.

    The Shipley School Reviews

    I’ve had three children at Shipley. Our favorite part are the rigorous academics. My kids love that their teachers are approachable and always available to help. The sports are challenging for all levels of play, and the environment is friendly and welcoming to everyone!

    Shipley offers a comfortable environment to thrive as an individual. The teachers care deeply about the students. Compared to other schools, there is little pressure to conform. The food is delicious. It is a safe and wonderful place to grow and learn. I appreciate the coeducational environment, because in my opinion isolating your child from the opposite sex sends the wrong message. Graduating from a school like Shipley should help students navigate not only college, but also the rest of their lives. The country might be a better place if everyone had a Shipley-like education.
    Since I've been at Shipley, I feel like I've really grown into the person I have always wanted to be. I came into Shipley in ninth grade and was really worried about the transition. Right away, I was accepted by the community with open arms and never once felt like an outsider. While I spent most of my extracurricular time in the arts/theatre department, I was never once classified as a "theatre kid". With Shipley, there is no 'type'; every student is an athlete, academic, and artist. I found myself in a community where everyone genuinely cared about each other's wellbeing, and encouraged each other to be their authentic self. I truly cannot imagine my High School experience any other way and will forever be thankful that I found Shipley.
