Overall Experience
It was definitely worthwhile. I grew a lot as an individual. I learned that I can live on my own successfully. Especially since I was in another country. I got to meet a lot of individuals and learn their life lessons as well. I will cherish these memories my whole life. - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review

About

Our 100 day intensive Fall and Spring semesters are challenging immersions into place-based learning, real-world research and problem solving, sustainable living practices, intentional community building, and a sense of what is possible. Instead of learning history from a textbook, you will converse with local Bahamians and understand how to study the histories of a place in small class groups of twelve. Instead of creating artistic work about the world outside your school’s walls, you will let the outside world shape your artistic expression. You will not just learn to identify marine species from land, but you will discover ecosystem as you look up through the surface of the water. Alumni frequently tell us that at The Island School they “learned how to learn.” You will not be doing work in traditional high school labs; you will walk across a footbridge to the Cape Eleuthera Institute, a world class research facility, and conduct scientific research alongside scientists and graduate students. You will not just discuss what it means to live on a campus with solar and wind power, biodiesel production, and water catchment systems, you will have the opportunity to make The Island School more sustainable by designing projects that help us live better in a place.
