The West Islip community is committed to excellence in education through the establishment of an academic, vocational and social environment in which all children can learn and succeed. Our students will be provided the opportunity to develop their self-esteem and a respect for others while acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become responsible citizens in a rapidly changing world. We seek to instill in our students the ability to share their commonalities, celebrate their differences, and appreciate that learning is a life long process.
