Thousand Islands Central School District Reviews
I enjoy my teachers and the staff's accomadation. All of the teachers care about all of us students, and all of them offer as much support as they are able. Its a very calm environment, although some teachers do assign a lot of honework and put a lot of stress on students with the hope of pushing us to success. There are many clubs and social opportunities available to all students. Each student is very carefully monitored with the intent of setting each student off onto a career path before graduating. Though many students complain about our school, I appreciate our school. However one complaint would be that sports always take the spotlight over all other clubs and activities.
I find Thousand Islands High School to be better socially than academically. Although there is an obvious lack of diversity, there are many opportunities for everyone to come together for the community and to have fun amongst ourselves. Every fall, each student has the opportunity to participate in the Spirit Carnival, to raise money for our classes. We also have many dances where students can take a break from academics for a little while. Academics at Thousand Islands, however, are lacking. A teacher that I had for Regents Algebra 1 was forced into his math position by the school so that they could try to get him to quit, rather than hiring someone new and more familiar with the new Common Core curriculum. Thousand Islands High School has been a great place to attend, although it is lacking in some aspects.
Thousand Islands High School is in a safe area and has great teachers that care about the students and are well educated on what they are teaching. The only things I would change about Thousand Islands High School is that I believe they should have more discussions with students about bullying and the effects bullying can have on a student, and ways to help someone who is being bullied, as bullying was an issue when I was in high school.
