Why would you assume that? Not from around these parts, are ya?

It's one of the bottom 5 worst performing high schools in the county. Only ones worse are Amityville and Wyandanch, I believe.

Lousy schools, very highly compensated employees.

Islandia has always struck me as the nightmare of suburbia - nothing really to it, it just exists with houses and strip malls.

Yeah, taxes are really high in Central Islip considering how cheap houses are.
