The Islip School District is proud to announce that Newsweek has recognized Islip High School as one of the nation’s best high schools, ranking 1,058 out of the top 2,000 public high schools across the entire United States.

During the annual survey of thousands of high schools, Newsweek searched for the top 2,000 educational institutions that have proven to be the most effective in graduating college-ready students. Ranking of top schools is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent) and percentage of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).

“One of the top priorities of our district is to provide our students with the necessary skills to be college and career ready upon graduation,” said Superintendent of Schools Susan A. Schnebel. “We are proud to be recognized by Newsweek for our efforts.”
