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.
My son has been going since kindergarten the principal is GREAT, very caring my son loves the school and enjoys the reading programs.
Our oldest granddaughter as well as her sister go to Sipley & it's nice to know they are getting a good education in a safe and caring school! Woodridge schools was one of the reasons we moved here many years ago and Sipley is one of the best in the district!
I feel that this school is a very together school and the teachers/principal take very good care of all the students.
Sipley is a great school, teachers care for your children. Teachers are educated. My child is happy to go to school everyday and that makes me feel good.
The educational staff is dedicated and passionate about their students and their families.
Their commitment to fundamentals serves as a role model for other schools.
I am a parent and now a grandparent of children who have attended/are attending Sipley School. Since 1981 I have had the pleasure of watching Sipley School evolve into a diverse community of learners who are served by a dedicated and passionate educational staff. The school provides a caring culture with a rigorous and challenging curriculum.
My kids just love this school, very nice teachers, a lot of excellent activities
John L.Sipley School has a very warm, child friendly environment. The principal, teachers and other staff members are very caring. Sipley rightly follows the " No child left behind" motto. I like the way emphasis is laid on reading, together with other sublects. Also, all areas of child growth are given importance. Thank You Sipley.
My 2 sons received a wonderful education at Sipley School during the 1970's. Stan Adolph and the staff were always available and dedicated to the growth of the students.
My children went to Sipley. Sipley is a welcoming school with excellent and dedicated teachers .My children received a wonderful, well-rounded education at Sipley which prepared them very well for high school and college.
