Islip High School is overall a great school for many different reasons. The school offers many clubs and activities where anyone can find people who have common interests. Within the past few years, the school went under massive renovations that provide state of the art facilities for their students and faculty members. There are many excellent teachers that inspire and help the students to go above and beyond. In my four years I had mainly a positive experience and highly recommend this school

Islip High School is a very nice high school. Both the High school and Middle school recently went thru a 85 Million dollar upgrade. New basketball and tennis court along with a new stadium and two turf field make Islip one the the best sport facilities on Long Island. New lockers, windows and computers along with new roofs and auditoriums are only some of the upgrades both schools have received. The teachers are fantastic and the school gets students ready for college.
Academics were good, school environment could have used some improvement, but from what I understand the new principal who started after I graduated has made some positive changes. The school still lacks diversity, but that also comes from the town/location, as it is a public school.
