A Message from the Principal:

Dear Islip High School Families,

It has been such a wonderful start to the school year. Thank you for your support! At the High School, we are committed to making sure that all our students experience success this semester. We continue to focus on providing the academic challenge and support that students need. Please do not hesitate to reach out to faculty, support staff - including your child's school counselor, and grade level assistant principal with your questions. We look forward to our continued partnership with you throughout this school year. Remember to check your email for periodic updates through Parent Square and to check the Parent Portal to monitor your child's academic progress and attendance. I hope to meet you at one of our upcoming "Coffee with the Principal" meetings or other school events.


Lara Gonzalez, Ed.D.

RATED PG-13 for some mature language and situations.

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naive newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady and her friends devise a "Revenge Party" to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Adapted from Tina Fey's hit 2004 film, Mean Girls was nominated for a staggering 12 Tony Awards.

“With active participation from our Islip team and our community partners, we have been able to collect over 500 pairs of jeans every year,” teacher Renee Clock said. “That's over 5,000 pairs of denim jeans for our local community.”
