    "Because of size of the Shelter Island school, it's often feels as a family. Everyone know each other and stay close. Teaching stuff are friendly, helpful, and carrying. My son came to this school when he was 6 from the Ukraine . He didn't even speak English. Everyone , teachers and students, embraced him and made him comfortable. He learned , grew, and got inspired during the school years. Music , science, drama are some of his passions thanks to wonderful teachers from the Shelter Island school."

    "Teachers are very helpful and friendly. They willing to spend any extra time with students if needed. I often see former students come visit their favorite teachers. Overall, I feel pretty pleased with our teachers."

    "I had a few excellent teachers whom I admire and respect. But many, especially the ones that taught the "electives" had little knowledge of the topic and it wound up hurting my grades. Teaching styles were pretty uniform which made school kind of dull, but all teachers were fully present and often too involved in students' lives."

    "I felt grossly underprepared for college, even though colleges go out of their way to make the transition as smooth as possible. Academically I was not prepared for the amount of work I had to do. Being with the same 20 kids left me overwhelmed by the amount of people at my classes. I can only imagine how lost I would be if I had skipped college and began working and living on my own."
