This is my son second year in this school. I can say is a good school. As far I know all my son's teacher have been excellent caring and very professional. No like Morrow School were most of the teachers and staff were race. I had my older son in that school when Mr. Orobona was the principal. But Mulligan sure is not perfect but I can tell how caring and good is Mrs. Jackson and mayority of staff. They have excellent programs, extended hours, music,computer,art, intramurals and after school program YES.

My child attended this school in the 5th. and 6th. grade. There are some great teachers here (ex) ms. Brown, ms. Clemente & ms. Burhart). The prinicipal is also excellent so i do not agreed with some of these reviews. Ms. Jackson is always involved with the students and works long hours trying to help them. She is one of the greatest principals we have in central islip and is easy to talk to. Maybe some of the parents need to become more involved with the school and the students and then they would see just how great she is.

The Mulligan school is the worst building in our district. The Principal should be replaced immediately since she has no leadership abilities whatsoever. The teachers or at least some of them need to be reminded that they are here to teach our children not make excuses for poor performance and earn one of the highest salaries in NY.

this year this school is out of control. bb guns have bb brought to school by a students who was giving a slap on the wrist and still attends the school.we have teachers as well as subs who tell the kids they are not worth teaching.one has been in this distric for many years spouting this garbage and no matter how many parents complain she is still teaching and has tenor ! we will pay her heath insurence when she retires for telling our children this.the state needs to look into this school to find out what is going on. there is also a lunch room aide who screams in kids faces anf thinks it's funny because her mother works in the district office and she knows she can get away with it. this school is the worst in ci

This school only concentrates on the children passing the State Exam and not actually teaching the children. This a serious problem for the children to compete with other schools. Its unfortunate because there is a handful of great teachers in the school that really care about educating their students.

The principal needs a better support team to help her handle her daily job, one person can not do it alone..I feel she would do a better job if she didnt have to spread herself so thin. The teachers are exceptable on the most part as long as you stay on top of your childs education and ask questions when you fell it is needed and you dont wait for them to get in touch with out,you will be fine.

Mulligan is a great school. It has great art and sports involvement. But the music should use more than just watching movies. They should do more activities. Parent involvement is also fair. What I'm concerned about is that the school pays too much for the dances, trips, etc and thats why not too many students go and teachers dont even go.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
