I graduated from WIHS recently and feel that the education from this school has helped me a great deal in college. Unless you are in AP and honors classes I feel that WIHS really is not all that great. Since I happened to only be in honors and AP courses I came across some of the best and most influential teachers that have changed my life forever. These teachers were not only my academic instructors but life mentors as well. Besides that academic portion of WIHS the athletics are great except for the fact that it becomes extremely political. The student population of WIHS turns into a typical high school scene where cliques govern the entire school. For a social environment I would say that WIHS is not the greatest hs experience.
I am a graduate of West Islip High School. Although I do not believe it is as strong as it used to be it is still an excellent school district with much to offer its students in the way of academics (including AP) athletics (especially lacrosse and football) music and myriad clubs. The building is nice and spacious including a pool. There are many outstanding teachers across all subjects. What it lacks however is diversity. Additionally the special education population is very small and so is the program (although I know of a few excellent hard-working special ed teachers there). Also it seems to have fewer discipline problems than other schools of comparable size.
Three of my kids have gone to West Islip HS and my 4th is a freshman there now. Great school great academics outstanding sports and music programs. Olympic size pool & planetarium make this school unique. I find that the kids here are pretty disciplined & you don't see the problems that many city schools face. Very college-oriented community.
This school offers people the ability to have a wonderful educational experience. The only thing is that your child needs to take on the challege of having a good educational experience.
This is a great high school in the area. The eduction is good and there is a swimming pool which not many other high schools in the area offer.
Both my children have attended this school and I think it is GREAT. With many certified teachers.
Parents are involved a lot in the school. Great test scores. I just love the school.
Mrs. Hanlon a guidance counselor there is the best one that I have ever had! She is a wonderful person who helped me cope with many things all throughout High School. Give her a big raise!
