The Island School’s Spring 2010 band, under the pseudonym The Project IS, played a 40 minute set for Deep Creek’s Homecoming celebration this past Saturday night. Despite only an hour and a half of practice time, the Continue reading
Caciques: Emma and Owen
To start off the day, we had a sleep-in. However, as typical Island School students and faculty, hardly anyone slept in– everyone was busy going free-diving and painting a mural in Deep Creek. After breakfast, we had our math final, which was based on the presentations from our Directed Study projects that had occured a few days ago. Another big event was our last Continue reading
Caciques: Grace & Will
Morning circle was ambushed by a myriad of pirates. Pirate Remo hired us all to complete missions for him in our kayak groups. We had to find the golden conchs in the boy’s dorm beach wreck while fighting off a pirate in a kayak. We had to cross triangle cut playing waterpolo while being attacked by sharks (both faculty and dog) in snorkeling gear. We had to cross girls’s dorm cut Continue reading
Caciques- Erin and Ben
This Saturday was the 4.5 mile Super Swim which was the culmination of the swim track training. All of the swimmers finished with amzing times and everyone was extremely proud for the event they trained for all semester. The run track students supported the swimmers on the boats and on shore. After a physically Continue reading

Later that day, we went on one of our last dives at the Island School, and one of the coolest!! We went IN Continue reading
For many students, the transition from parents weekend to the normal academic schedule was harder then they may have expected. Seeing your parents at 10 pm Sunday night, going to sleep, and waking up to the stress of the final academic week is something that many are still dealing with. However, yesterday, from 1pm until around 5:45pm we Continue reading
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend here at The Island School!
We had the privelage of being the only caciques for two days… thats right. TWO! Hadley and Steven N. were the dynamic duo that kept this place running for an entire 48 hours, that’s the same amount of time your children spent alone on a beach… but who’s counting?
Before we could kick it off as caciques, coffee house stole the show on Saturday night with a plethora of talent. The Island School band really knocked our socks off with their original mashups, Hey Ya, etc. The Continue reading
Yesterday, despite the morose atmosphere, was a productive day on campus. Boys’ and Girls’ North Dorm participated in a free dive with Maxey at Cathedral Rock, while Boys’ and Girls’ South Dorm had a wonderful sleep in, which we were both active participants in (the sleep-in). After morning exercise, (if you will) we began two blocks of academic classes – literature & math – followed by a short research block where everyone received their Continue reading
