Great school and great teachers. I feel that my child is very safe. Lots of teachers always involved and watching out, especially during child drop off and pick up.

It is a wonderful supportive school where the teachers, support staff and the principal are all great role models that create such a caring, nurturing environment for our children. We are very fortunate as the school is progressive with Common Core standards and technology. We are continually growing and trying to achieve various goals especially in reading and math.

Our kids just started at Sipley fall 2011. The facilities seem up to date and faculty seems to have the credentials to make it a great school. However we have had better first impressions. 1.) We were not notified which Kindergarten class (AM or PM )they would be in until the day before they started. 2.) Registration was understaffed and took two hours after going through pre-registration 3.) The first days of class there were scheduling and busing issues. 4.) Faculty is in a rush to answer your questions and get you out the door. I truly hope things improve or it looks like we are pulling the kids and sending them to Montessori school or moving away from Woodridge.

Before coming to this school, my older daughter was bored with school. She was ahead of the curriculum and wasn't leanring anything new to keep her interested in school. With the wonderful teachers who really zone in on each individual child and programs in place by the district, she is finally challenged and learning new things!! My younger daughter was always deemed "average" and wasn't an avid reader. Her teachers pushed her and challenged her. They made learning fun for her and set high standards not only for her but for all her classmates. SHe now has a love for reading in her advanced reading class!! I can not say enough about Sipley and its awesome staff!!!

We have three children that attend Sipley School and I can't say enough about the quality education that they are receiving there. The curriculum and teachers are outstanding, and the multi-faceted reading program is top-notch. It is a school with great diversity and high standards. The thing that has impressed me the most about Sipley School is the social-emotional curriculum that has recently been developed and established throughout all grade levels. The children at Sipley are learning more that just reading, writing and math skills; they are learning the tools to become productive and tolerant people that feel good about themselves and others. I am disheartened to learn that your website rates schools solely on ISAT scores.
