    "We have 5 children at Shipley, ranging from Lower through Upper School. Every step of the way we have found the teachers and administrators to be incredibly kind and supportive; they are always available to my children and to us. My children are encouraged to take risks and try new things, but in an environment in which they feel safe and supported. They are challenged by Shipley's rigorous academics, but not overwhelmed by work. They can be on the soccer team and in the school play. They can be in Chess Club and play Varsity Baseball. I think the right word to use is "Balance". I am watching my children develop into well-rounded, confident young adults, and I am thrilled that we have chosen Shipley for our family."

    "I had an older child who went to the school so we were looking forward to have our daughter apply to grade 9. We were totally turned off by the admission counselor/lacrosse coach....he was rude, out of breath and couldn't wait to get the tour over with. She is now happy at Agnew Irwin"

    "At Shipley we talk a lot about educating the whole child, from academics, athletics, arts and character. The thing we don't talk about that always amazes me is how involved Shipley parents are in school activities and how open and encouraging the school administration is to that involvement. When we found Shipley, we found the right place for our kids to learn and grow and a wonderful community for our family to be part of."

    "I went to Shipley from Pre-K to 12th grade, and my experience there was extraordinary. I always found myself surrounded by adults who encouraged me to find my own path toward intellectual and personal growth. Additionally, my peers were thoughtful, diverse in both background and opinion, and talented. During my senior year, I took an independent study The History and Politics of the Cold War that helped prepare me greatly for my freshman writing and history classes at Harvard. Similarly, the relationships with my teachers in high school taught me how to form strong bonds with my professors. All-in-all, Shipley was a rigorous but supportive place that prepared me greatly for success in college."
