East Islip Union Free School District


The East Islip Union Free School District is home to 6 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school. The district serves a diverse student population with varying academic performance and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Among the standout schools in the district, Timber Point Elementary School stands out with its consistently high rankings and 5-star rating, despite having the highest student-teacher ratio of the elementary schools. In contrast, Ruth C. Kinney Elementary School has the lowest student-teacher ratio and its students have performed well on state assessments, with higher proficiency rates than the district and state averages in several grade levels. At the secondary level, East Islip High School has a strong track record, ranking in the top 200 high schools in the state for the past three years and maintaining a high graduation rate of 94.8%.

The data reveals significant differences in academic performance among the district's elementary schools, suggesting that the district may benefit from analyzing the factors contributing to these disparities and implementing targeted interventions to improve outcomes at the lower-performing schools. Additionally, the varying demographic profiles of the schools, particularly the differences in the percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, raise questions about equity and the district's efforts to ensure that all students have access to high-quality educational opportunities, regardless of their socioeconomic background.
