Welcome to Wing Elementary School!
As the only primary school in the district, Wing provides the first public educational experience for the community’s 400+ kindergarten and first graders. Our staff is committed to ensuring that students and their families feel safe, secure and nurtured as they begin their education. We are dedicated to the Islip School District’s Mission Statement: “The Islip Schools, in partnership with the community, will empower all students to achieve excellence.” Our goal is for each student to master the skills needed to be a lifelong learner and to understand the joy and power of learning.

All children have different experiences and backgrounds by the time they get to Wing. As a primary school, we recognize these differences and work with each student to ensure that our instruction is differentiated to meet their needs. On a daily basis, Wing students engage in a variety of activities that help them develop a love of learning. The educational setting at Wing consistently focuses on the skills students need to be successful, both socially and academically.

We also recognize the importance of working together with the families of each child to create healthy communication between home and school. Our efforts to support each student are increased when we can consistently collaborate with parents and guardians. The teachers and staff members at Wing have a great deal of professional experience in all areas of child development. We are committed to working with each of you to create a stellar educational experience for your child.

Through illustrative tricks and captivating demonstrations, Dumpster Doug helped the students discover the important role they play in protecting natural resources.

The NAMM Foundation has again recognized the strength of the district’s rigorous music program, awarding it a Best Communities for Music Education designation for 2017. Islip was one of only 4 percent of districts nationwide to be honored with this annual award, now in its 18th year, recognizing an exemplary commitment to music education.

“The Islip School District and the community at large value the arts,” said Vincent Green, director of fine and performing arts. “Our students are not a test score or a GPA – they are unique individuals. As a community, we work hard to give each of them the opportunities and support to become a whole person and not a transcript. We strive to give our students the chance to explore the arts and become whomever they wish, whether an athlete, poet, scientist or artist.”
