The teachers were good as they were helpful and they cared about their students. The guidance counselors could have been better but I was lucky to have a guidance counselor that helped me with everything for all four years of school. I was able to have a flexible schedule towards my junior and senior year which is nice as they do not overload your schedule with classes that I don't need to take. The environment was safe as well.
I love attending Central Islip Senior High School. I've been attending this school for almost 4 years and I wouldn't change anything about it. The teachers and all the staff are the best , I never felt that I had a unexperienced or "bad" teacher. Whenever there was a conflict or problem, it was solved in a quick manner. The school is very clean and its a great feeling to attend school there.
My experience at Central Islip Senior High School has been very limited. Due to me only having to experience two months of it until going fully remote. However, I do know that the staff really cares for every student. My teachers will make sure that my classmates and I understand the subject thoroughly. Their food is very yummy compared to other schools. Although I have only been in the school for two months as a Hybrid learner, I do know that they took great measures to make sure of everyone's safety due to COVID-19. The school was very organized about how to ensure everyone is safe and still experience school life. However, I gave 4 out of 5 stars due to some teachers using online school to give so much work than normal. I don't speak upon that much, however, it can be extremely tiring.
My experience in high school was pretty crazy. It was kind of off to a rocky start at first it was kind of difficult for me. But then i started surrounding myself with people who are trying to better themselves academically and just trying to be better people and that’s when i started to excel in school.
Central Islip High School gives back to you what you put in. If you are a student who doesn't care about what happens to their grade and what classes you take, you'll get the very same energy back. However, if you're a student who constantly pushes themselves to get good grades, to make good connections, to actually achieve something with your time you'll get that back definitely. There are tons of great and smart kids in the school, but it can't be over looked that there are kids who don't want to do anything but don't let that bring down CISH's reputation, it's a school that tries when it wants to, and if you give the effort it will want to.
It is very nice over there. The students are friendly and focused as well as the teachers. There safety precautions are very good.
They do all they can to make sure we have a fun high school experience! The music department is the best on Long Island!
Personally I enjoyed my time at Central Islip Senior High School. The teachers were fine but what i really liked was the diversity and the fact that it was obvious that most teachers really wanted to help the students inside and outside the school.
I liked the school. There was always drama. But it was fun sometimes. There are a lot of good programs to get involved in. My grades were always good. There should be more field trips. And they shouldn’t charge students to pay for parking. I feel like that’s unnecessary. Overall the teachers are supportive. The disciplinary is not so good.
In my experience, high school has been pretty great. The main reason was my involvement in our music department since it’s such a close knit community. In the department, we sing together, grow together, and as a bonus, go on amazing trips. Academically, those that have been around me tend to be like minded so it was also a supportive atmosphere. What could be changed though is the lack of importance that the music department is beginning to encounter as funding is constantly being cut even though we tend to win competitions nationwide. Also the school tends to be very crowded and hard to make it to class on time due to this. Overall, I recommend this school if you’re someone big on music.
The Environment is not so bad. The teachers are almost nice. But the community is not so friendly. The cafeteria food is some what bad
What i liked the most about Central Islip High School was the experience in being involved in different clubs and school activities like soccer, football, track, Men of the Future, concert choir, and Band. These different clubs gave me the opportunity to travel to places like Florida, Washington, and this year we were suppose to go to California but due to the corona virus outbreak, it was cancelled.
Central Islip has a bad reputation and may have a lot of crime in the community but I feel as if I have had a normal high school experience. I have played sports, been a part of a great music program, and made lots of friends. I've had to learn to make good decisions and stay away from trouble - although I have gotten into a few mishaps here and there. I do think that the school should change in their involvement with its students. I think the school should try harder to get to know all their students. I feel that many students have needs and because its a community with low income, single parenting, illegal aliens, etc these students fall between the cracks and don't get the guidance and help they really need to succeed after high school.
My experience has been alright so far. It involves me doing some clubs and keeping my grades up. I have enjoyed the moments that I spend with my teachers and friends. The school has given me the opportunity to learn new things everyday and I am grateful for that.
The things that i like about Central Islip High School is how talented the kids are and how diverse the school is and friendly and active C I is !!!
I love some of the teachers as they are very friendly and great to talk to.However some are annoying and the teenagers are out of control! Also the bathrooms are dirty.
What I liked about my high school is that they had a criminal justice and law related class. The teacher was very caring and very helpful . We even go to go to a jail trip. Which was a experienced I like because that made we wanna have a career in criminal justice. My teachers were very caring and helpful. They helped me pass my regents. Although I didn’t like that a few of my teachers they were not helpful they were always yelling and they would speak negatively and unprofessionally to the the students, so it made it hard to learn and pass the class
