    "I love this school. I really do. I've felt at home in a short year and a half. I've been challenged academically and made very close friends hopefully for life. The only complaint I would have is the head of school. He's not present unless there's a photo op or a student who he can punish for something. I understand that students do wrong, and the Dean (Mr. Collins) acknowledges that he has a job to do and takes no pleasure in punishing kids. The head of school however (Dr. Piltch), seems to enjoy suspending students. I have even talked to teachers and heard them complain about him for various reasons, from his expedient business first attitude, to his silver spoon demeanor. I do however think that most heads of schools are bad, and that more speaks to the closeness students and teachers experience, to that where they would trust me enough to tell me something that could get them fired. In the end I respect Piltch, because whether he can be credited for this or not, he runs a truly great school."

    "I've been at this school for most of my life. When getting ready to enter highschool I reconcidered attending the school. This was mostly due to social issues. I decided to stay because it was the right place for me academically, which proved to be true. And while the social stuff was never fantastic, I grew a lot throughout my time at Shipley and will leave there as a successful student ready to go to college and further explore my academic interests. The school is great at working with you if you have any issues such as health problems or family issues. The sense of community at shipley is overwhelming, and the emphasis on community service helps to unite all ages of students and involve their families as well."
