What dedicated teachers and staff! My son was struggling in the elementary school, but with a great 5th grade teacher, then even better 6th grade teacher, he is self-confident, and doing so much better. The only negative is these state tests. The kids have so many extra help classes that they're getting burned out.

I transferred to this school from private school and only went here for a year, before I transferred back to private school... Whoever said there is a low tolerance for bullying here must be confusing this school with another one. The worst childhood memories took place at this school. I was bullied viciously, most of the time in front of teachers (who either did absolutely nothing, or laughed along). Hallways, classrooms, nothing was off limits and when my mother complained, the district did nothing. I'm not "weird" or "nerdy" or any of the other stereotypes who usually get bullied. I've had tons of friends ever since I left, and never got bullied again. It's strange to say, but it's almost refreshing to come on here, and see reviews from other students/parents who have had the same experience as me (even in the same year). Now I see that it was less a problem with me, and more a problem with the lack of supervision and consequences for bad behavior at the school. I've noticed that all of the positive reviews here are from parents. I bet if you ask the students, you will find a different opinion (or maybe not, since the bullied kids might be too worried to speak out).

I went to IT (class of 1990) as did my 3 siblings & my mom & I stayed so my sons can attend IT also. There are quite a few former students who 's children now go to IT. It is a wonderful school w/ very LOW tolerance for bullies, there is a program outlining what is expected from every student behavior/academic wise & very high parent involvement. and the budgets get passed.

Students are expected to be very independant. There are many after school activities. Very good school.

My child's comfort level in the Island Trees Middle School dropped after 6th grade. Once in 7th grade, we noticed a great deal of bullying and have been advised there is little supervision in the halls during the change of classes to help deter bullying. There is also a great lack of written communication to the parent after 6th grade.

I have found ITMS to be a great school. The teachers and administration is very approachable and helpful. I feel that my child is continuously challenged and encouraged. ITMS has many extracurricular activities to keep the children involved. I find there is a lot of school spirit. There are also many programs and incentives to get the children to help each other, deal with bullying, and self esteem which is very important at this stage in their devolopment. I am very pleased with my experience (3 children) in this district!

This has been a wonderful school that emphasizes the positive in my child. Through the counseling department, competent teachers and a majority of great kids, the middle school has gone great for my child. Academics is always stressed, and there is a good choice of clubs and social events. The best thing has been the music department and the band. Music has been the most important influence and the music program is awesome! The administration really listens if any issues arise and action is taken quickly and fairly. My child has accomplished things I never thpought possible and I do believe that the middle school has been the saving grace.

This is one of the best middle schools on Long Island. There are a variety of after-school activities, a very involved faculty and it is a safe school for learning.
