Islands High School Reviews

My mom requested permission to enroll me at Islands High School through administrative placement to keep a closer eye on me. See, when I was 17 I dropped out of school and ran away to be with my boyfriend. When I realized what a huge mistake that was and asked my mom if I could come back home, she said yes, but she would be keeping a very close eye on me. My mom met with the principal of Islands HS and discussed my troubled past and my mom's concerns. The principal was not only kind enough to approve the administrative placement immediately, but she also gave me hope that I could still graduate on time if I was willing to put in the work. Thanks to her and the rest of the Islands HS staff, I graduated on time and am now looking for scholarship money to get me through nursing school!

It’s a smaller high school, which makes teachers and staff more personable. It was nice walking into the counselors office and they know your name even after only speaking a few times to them! It is one of the better public schools in the county, but of course it has its downsides like not very sanitary bathrooms. Overall, my personal experience was good.
As an uprising senior at Islands High School, the past three years at the school have been very rewarding. Not only does Islands High School offer a wide variety of clubs, sports, and advanced placement/honors courses, but the diversity of the school is astonishing. Students have the potential opportunity to interact with people from every walk of life, helping to prepare them for their eventual release into society as an adult. Therefore, not only does Islands High School help to prepare students for college or any other post-high school plans from an academic and athletic standpoint, but also from a standpoint of social and cultural awareness. I highly recommend this school based on the very positive experience that I have had.
