On June 5, students and instructors from the East Islip High School Career Academy program held a summit with members of the local business community to show the impact of their work during the 2011-2012 school year. Led by Career Academy director Israel Malinowitzer, they also introduced the business community to East Islip’s new medical academy concept.
The third of the school’s highly successful career-oriented programs (after the Environment Green and Global Business Career Academies), the Medical and Health Technology Career Academy starts in September and has already proven popular with ambitious members of the Class of 2013 who have signed on to participate.
“Some exciting things are happening in very creative and groundbreaking ways at EI,” remarked Board of Education President Glenn Reed. “The Career Academy is making things happen.”
