East Islip High School Reviews

Multiple years while I attended I remember my parents having to vote on increased budgets just to play sports. Budgets increase would fail and we would have to raise money ourselves just to participate in sports programs for that SEASON. Lots of drugs go through the school. Sports programs are pretty good. In my 4 years I can count on one hand how many teachers actually cared about my education. Most push through the agenda to say they did it. Students are favored if they’re a sports star. Average kids with no athletics get little to no attention. Most people I know did not feel prepared for the SAT. Those who did well academically and athletically DID get into great colleges!

My school values the safety of their students. They have safety policies and “chip in” machines to ensure that no one will break into our school. I loved going to school at East Islip because everyone was able to embrace themselves without any restrictions. The teachers were kind, supportive and always put your comfort first. I miss school very much, and I am very saddened to hear that we might not be able to have the rest of our senior year due to the pandemic. It frightens me to think that we may not get our last prom, music banquet, spring concert, a capella performance, field trips, or even graduation. I would give anything to go back.
I personally feel that East Islip High School is a great school because it provided me with a lot of options. The AP classes that were available to me as well as many other extracurricular classes allowed me to decide my strengths and weaknesses, as well as what subjects I do and do not enjoy. I also appreciate that the school is inclusive of all different students. While sports are heavily praised, the music department is equally massive and important. Events such as the school musical and the school concerts are held with great importance because the school values music education. The time I have spent in honors symphony, chamber orchestra club, honors choir, tri-M, and the school musicals have had a major positive impact on my life. This experience would not have been possible at many other schools. I also got the chance to be part of the varsity cross country and track teams for some time. I gained a great deal of knowledge about discipline, strength, and teamwork through this.
