A Message from the Principal:

Dear Islip High School Students and Parents,

At Islip High School, we are excited about the possibilities for students that this 2023-2024 school year offers. Our focus at the High School will continue to be on student learning and specifically, student engagement. Together with faculty and staff, we will encourage students to challenge themselves intellectually, to broaden their academic interests, and to work on becoming the best version of themselves. We hope that students will take advantage of the co-curricular activities, clubs, and leadership opportunities available to them. We look forward to including families in our learning community through a variety of events, including Meet the Teacher night, Curriculum Night, College Planning Workshop for Junior Parents, our evening College Fair, and "Parent University" discussions on October 25th, February 1st, and March 7th. We hope to hear from you and see you in person soon.

Sincerely yours,

Lara Gonzalez, Ed.D.

Islip High School’s new Unified Basketball team, coached by Jamie Lynch, recently finished an exceptional first season, highlighted by a triumphant Senior Night game against Hauppauge High School’s Eagles on May 20.

“They displayed great character, sportsmanship and care throughout the season and came together as one big family with excitement and enthusiasm,” Lynch said. “They also exhibited a fierce competitiveness on game days. Even though we said winning wasn’t important, they decided that it was!”

Fourteen Special Olympics athletes from the Islip School District and over 20 student volunteers traveled to Plainedge High School on May 4 to compete in the Special Olympics New York Spring Games North.

After four months of weight training with coach Gian Villante and speed training with coach Dave Claps, the team was ready to compete. Track and field events at the Games included the 25-meter assisted walk, 50-meter run, 50-meter motorized wheelchair slalom, 100-meter walk, 200-meter run, 400-meter run, shot put, and tennis, softball and Turbojav throws. Islip’s team were podium regulars that day, taking home numerous gold medals with their peer volunteers right beside them to cheer them on.  

“The district could not be prouder of the athletes’ efforts and the efforts of our many volunteers who showed up that day as well as those who showed up for the four months prior,” physical education teacher Patricia Whitehouse said.

Islip High School video production and broadcasting students Olivia Auerbach, Cailin Egan, Afzal Khan, Natalia Nalbone and Katharine Placa recently earned fifth place in the national Greatest Save Teen PSA contest, sponsored by KinderVision, a charity of Major League Baseball. In the Greatest Save PSA contest, high school teens create, script, film and edit an original 30-second public service announcement on a chosen topic.

After being named Long Island regional and New York State winners, Islip’s students and their “Not Alone” video were selected by the Greatest Save/KinderVision board as national finalists. This is the fourth time that Islip technology teacher Mike Reilly’s video production and broadcasting students have won their region, and in 2022 they finished in the top three in national voting.  

“Everyone did an excellent job this year,” Reilly said.

Islip High School senior Dominique DiJulio won first place for Senior Formal Hairstyling at the Nassau/Suffolk CTG annual competition on May 6. For the past 60 years, this competition has featured the best stylists in all of Long Island’s school cosmetology programs.

“Not only has it been an honor to participate in this prestigious event, but to bring the first-place title back to Islip is overwhelmingly joyous,” cosmetology teacher Lorraine Knoblauch said. “Dominique has been a leader in class since last year, and has proven through her hard work and dedication how important cosmetology is in her life. I am honored to have worked with such an incredible young talent.”

Islip High School’s Super Vocal Revolution vocal jazz ensemble earned gold at the NYSSMA Majors Festival on May 21. Islip’s singers – Parker Barry, Lucas Bohr, Jessica Cruz, Skylar Greene, Rebecca Leo, Leela Lopez, Michelle Quinteros, Daniel Rubinson and Dan Turk – won the highest award possible at the most challenging level. Dr. Rich Harris played piano and conducted the group, while music teachers Zach Butterfield and Steve Campanella provided back up on bass and drums. Super Vocal Revolution performed again that evening in the school auditorium as part of the district’s Festival of the Arts program.

“I am incredibly proud of these students who made the commitment to prepare for this challenge, and especially to Dr. Harris for seeing the potential in this group and getting them ready, as very few, if any, vocal jazz groups are assessed in New York State,” Director of Fine and Performing Arts Michael Hershkowitz said.
