Middle School Classroom

Approximately 2,000 students attend kindergarten through fifth grade in four elementary schools. The Board of Education and administration recognize the individuality of each child and believe that all children can learn in an educationally sound and supportive environment.

The middle schools consist of grades six through eight and utilize the educational model proposed by the New York State Board of Regents for the schooling of early adolescents. Approximately 1,100 students receive instruction from a team of 90 teachers. Basic and accelerated programs in English, social studies, science, math, and foreign language are provided, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary instruction.

The high school, which houses about 1,600 students, offers over 200 courses, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Syracuse University Project Advance and other college level courses. Over 95% of graduates receive Regents Diplomas and over 92% go on to higher education.

Higher Standards for Everyone

The Board of Education

Trustees believe that education is a process that improves the ability to learn, expands interests, and encourages character growth. With this understanding, the Board, in partnership with students, parents and the community, provides the children with an academic environment that fosters discovery and knowledge while guiding them to a sense of quality and integrity.

Our Goals

Educational goals are achieved through child-centered learning activities with hands-on experiences. Wide-ranging, high-quality programs are offered to students of every level, helping them realize academic and personal potentials.

We are Shaping the Future

We are building the future by teaching students the skills and fortitude needed to climb the ladders of success. We are empowering them to reach and exceed our district's Standards of Excellence to ensure they will thrive and lead in this rapidly changing world.

And we are confident that our academic achievements, which are among the best in the state, will continue to permit us to boast: "Education Shines in West Islip Schools!"
