My daughter attended STEM Academy for middle school. We were worried we would not find a high school that would challenge her. She chose Islands and is in the Scientific Research Program. They moved her to Sophomore Honors classes her Freshman year. She is very happy and so are we. Great program.
Wonderful Island school! We were very happy when the island opened a high school. We transferred from a local private school and couldn't of been happier with our decision! My children love going to school, which is a big deal!
An absolute nightmare of a school. So unorganized, and the teachers are too lazy to make lesson plans so we end up sitting there all period. Its a joke honestly, where i was from in the northeast, my 6th grade year was more challenging from my one year experience with these slackers. The wost.part is, there isnt even soap in the bathrooms. Im sure the schools being built in Africa offer a better education than this circus. An abosolute joke of a school. Its a shame kids dont recieve a proper opportunity to learn, and this is coming from a one year 10th grade student.
Islands offers an excellent environment for education by offering honors and advanced placement classes in all areas of study but with a focus on Science and Math. The teachers, staff an principal are excellent communicators to both parents and students and have formed an amazing team whose main goal is to educate your child for a future of success. The school has a welcoming environment and someone is always available to answer questions. They utilize technology in the best ways possible and create an advantage for their students to be able to communicate with teachers and staff more easily as well as having endless opportunities for expanding their resources. I could not be more pleased with my childs experience so far.
Islands is a great school, I have been going here since it became the high school we all know and love as islands. The teachers are great, the studetns are good, the teachers here find ways to teach the standards in a fun way, that as us students we will understand and not be bored to death because of it. The althetics are coming along, as we all know you wont have the best teams right away it takes time. our volleyball team went to state, and our soccer team as well. All in all this school is great!
Islands is in its third year of operation, and already the faculty and staff have established the school as one of the most attractive options in the area. The coursework is rigorous and well taught. I have seen my daughter's comprehension and retention of material skyrocket in her first year out of middle school. She is intrigued by the teachers, and feels excited to go every morning. The school is the home of a Biological Sciences program, which is also one of the most academically challenging magnet programs available in the entire school system. Although the school might be short on history, the structure of the place has been well designed and executed. We are optimistic about the future of our children's experiences at Islands High School.
