Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year. Please join the Central Islip High
School administration, faculty, staff, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students and me in welcoming 500 freshmen to Central Islip High School freshmen wing. As I serve my third year as your Principal, I am looking forward to an exciting year here in Central Islip High School with much anticipation.
The abundance of educational opportunities that are offered for all students to attain their personal best will continue into the new school year here in Central Islip High School thanks, in part, to our Community’s support of our 2016-2017 Budget. We are adding a number of course selections and educational opportunities including: Advanced Placement (AP) Psychology, AP Physics 2, AP World History, AP Computer Science, AP Macroeconomics, Intel Science Advanced Research and College Statistics.
The entire high school community – Parents, faculty, support staff, administrators and PTSA, together with the Board or Education, join together to offer enriching opportunities and the best learning environment for all of our students to thrive and excel in all that they do.
I am happy to announce that our graduation rate increased in one year by over 83.6 percent as of June 2015 and over 88.5 percent as of June 2016. This all speaks to the level of professionalism and dedication by our team of educators and staff, our students’ determination to learn and expand their horizons, and commitment from our parents and school community.
As we look ahead to the 2016-2017 School Year, numerous enriching opportunities – inside our classrooms, on our athletic fields, and throughout our very proud community, are awaiting our students as they continue to grow to be productive members of our society.
