I love the arts/music program. I was always in the school musicals, I played the viola in our orchestra and was a member of our chorus. My favorite part was a singing and dance group called vocal motion. We put on 2 shows during our junior and senior years, but unfortunately due to covid - we are no longer able to perform. This was always the highlight of the school. We would go to the elementary and middle schools and put on a performance. When I first witnessed the show in 5th grade, my goal was to make this group...and I did!
I had a great experience attending West Islip High School! While attending I made lifelong friends, played sports, joined clubs, and got ready for my time now at college! I couldn't imagine growing up in another town and attending a different school. West Islip prepared me for life after high school, and even after graduating I am still an active member of the community, along with the school district. I could not be any more grateful for my time spent attending West Islip Senior High School.
I have been attending the West Islip Senior High School since I was 14 years of age and I absolutely loved my experience. The teachers and academics were outstanding. I never felt uncomfortable approaching my teachers, walking around the school, or being a part of a club or sport team. The coaches too were amazing and made my experience at the high school far more better than I would ever imagine. I also love the activities that the school provides the students with to get involved. There’s always an opportunity to get involved. The security could be better, as I do not feel one hundred percent safe, but they are starting to improve that by enforcing the students to wear ID badges and the constant monitoring of who exits and enters the building. Overall, I rate my school with 5 stars! I loved my experience and cannot wait to see what the future holds!
