Central Islip is a home to many. Most of us have been together since elementary if not then middle school. So being able to grow up with familiar faces and seeing them every day in high school made everything a bit better. Who really likes to go to school? Not a lot of students but it’s about how the school is that makes us decide to go everyday. The cafeteria,gym, track and fields outside is one of the most best sightings at this school. Of course I cannot forget our music department, absolutely astonishing. The teachers at this establishment are like our second parents, they actually care and help us move forward. Senior year my English teacher made sure he spent a whole semester on perfecting everyone’s college essay and teaching us right from wrong. I appreciated this school and the wonderful people in it.

Central Islip Senior High school was a a great school to be at. Diversity was a major thing in the school and nobody judge you for who you are. There are a lot of opportunities that they offer and events to be involved in. The academics are good but if those that are having some difficulty with there grades, we have tutors like students and teachers willing to take their time out to help a student after school or manage a time to help. The teachers are great and always trying to look out for the students and make them feel comfortable being here at school.
Central Islip High School did a great job at giving me a head start in college. They paid for my AP exams, and participated in college programs that would give anyone a head start. Personally, I didn’t find the atmosphere to be completely friendly at times— particularly when it came to traveling in the hallways. The school is slightly overpopulated but I suppose I was able to live with it. It just made everything take much longer. Despite the school’s large population, the staff managed to make things run smoothly for the most part. I would recommend this school to someone interested in college readiness.
