This is our first year here. We just moved to the island. The teachers are wonderful. They are amazing. My child's classrrom had an aide which also helped one on one learning. I'm not impressed by the admin staff at all. Front office is very rude and principal has been unapproachable. We are sending ...  Read more

We are a new family to Island Park. My daughter arrived mid-year, 3rd grade. We were both welcomed and we found the teachers, staff and parents to be caring and helpful. Teachers and staff have gone out of their way to tell me how special my daughter is. I am certain I am not the only parent that ...  Read more

This school is just okay. The teachers are great but they can only do what the district allows and provides. That means that teaching has to cater to the lowest common denominator in my opinion. My daughter loved learning and was on her way to a good education when we moved here. She lost all interest ...  Read more

I am a former student of this school and absolutely love the teachers. Although the principal tries to give support to her students, NO TOLERANCE policy has made her a dictator. I am currently a student of islander middle school and I can't even walk across the street without an adult. There is something ...  Read more
