MISSION STATEMENT

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. Our goal is to
have students think in global terms and develop cultural sensitivity and an international orientation. We seek
to instill in our students the ability to share their commonalities, celebrate their differences, and appreciate
that learning is a lifelong process.
