East Islip High School Reviews
Rating 3.41 out of 5 237 reviews
There were many elective classes to choose from and being part of a sports team was a great experience
Facilities very good, teachers very good, athletics excellent, AP courses excellent, community culture and environment excellent
I like the courses available. I realized I want to study psychology in college after taking psychology classes in HS.
I like East Islip’s music program the most, they are a family and the teachers make sure everyone enjoys what they’re doing. The administration mainly focuses on sports which can become a problem when funding is involved because other programs can lose money. I do like their contribution with BOCES for trade careers.
The school is pretty nice and a majority of the staff is easy to get a long with and really make a connection with. The athletics at East Islip is very prestigious and the school itself has the most pride for itself I’ve ever seen, attending any sports event is something you won’t forget at East Islip.
Small school, many racist staff members and openly homophobic staff, staff doesn’t try to help with racism in the school.
East Islip High School prepared me for college. I would like to see the mascot changed, I think it is offensive to Native Americans.
I'm a senior and the school has amazing teachers, but the students can be mean and administration can be counter productive.
The acadamic department of the school was limited. I've transeffered several times throughout my middle school life and partly high school, and i could not find as much variety of courses as in other schools
There's nothing super SPECIAL about East Islip High School. Just imagine an average high school with the colors red, white, and black, and that's my school. However, I have made some extremely strong connections with almost all of the teachers I have had and sometimes with some that I have never had. The community is what stands out to me when I think of my school, and that is all that matters.
As a student at East Islip High School, I feel like I am getting a good education. My teachers care about how well we do and I feel like there are lots of opportunities available to the students at this high school.
The school is nice, but of course some things could change. The bathroom situation a year or two ago, in which they locked the bathrooms during passing and for the majority of the periods, was absolutely bizarre. Most of the teachers are sweethearts, but some just don't give off the energy that they care.
The teachers are excellent. They are committed to helping the students anyway they can, especially the honors and AP teachers. However, the school focuses too much on the football team instead of music and arts, or even other sports teams. I think that the administration is just "people pleasers" and would pour money into what the people want (especially the people who want football to generate profit), even if it's not the best thing to do for the students.
Best high school I struggled through high school but there was one man who helped better by days his was principal Brandan
East Islip High school is unique, I've made a lot of friends and love most of my teachers. However the administration is what kills the school most of the time. I do not know whether its the non-specific orders the state gives to the school, but any implementation of new rules is either crazy in its basis, or impossible to ever enforce. I would hope that eventually East islip gets new administrators and becomes a better place for students and faculty alike.
I love my teachers, they are the reason I am graduating. The kids, I hate them. There are fights which aren't a fun thing to see.
I transferred to East Islip for my junior year and I’ve gotten used to it but I didn’t like it as much as my other school. There’s barely diversity in the school.
