Islip High School offered little in college preparedness. However this does not mean Islip was bad, far from it. There were tons of teachers that knew what they were talking about and were willing to explain and teach it to those confused, if they put in the work to finding help. Yet there were teachers that were great people, but terrible teachers. Clubs in Islip were everything at islip. For a small school, there were a lot of clubs, but sports were not as interesting. We didn’t have enough students to have a swimming or gymnastics team so we paired up with another small school. There was not a lot of diversity in the school, as the school was mainly white people, but we develop more vents dedicated to diversity. The safety of Islip was sort of laid back and you could really enter anywhere to get in the school. The food really went downhill after that chef from chopped left.

What is Islip to me? Islip is an extremely small town located on the south shore of Suffolk County Long Island. Growing up in Islip for the past seventeen years of my life I’ve met my closest friends, and have made the fondest memories. Whether it was running laps at track practice while the sunset trying to PR my time for the next big meet or going to the football games on Friday night, cheering on my closest friends while they played under the spotlights as the whole stand bleeds purple and gold. Islip has truly been such a great place to grow as a person. I’ve had many opportunities throughout my years at Islip. Such as getting involved in the VE business program which I earned nine college credits in senior year and joining athletes helping athletes, a club for athletes to join to help the less fortunate kids in Suffolk County. Every teacher in this school creates a close bond with their students so they’re prepared to enter the next chapter of their lives.
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
