Island Heights is proud to be home to a National Blue Ribbon School. This prestigious and coveted award from the U.S. Department of Education affirms the hard work of our educators, families, and community in creating a safe and welcoming school where students master challenging and engaging content.

Nothing contributes more to the future of a community than the quality of education the community provides for its children. To ensure that we continue to sustain such academic excellence, and to address the unfortunate lack of local, state and federal funding resources and increased costs, the Island Heights Grade School (IHGS) has created the Island Heights Education Foundation to serve all IHGS students by providing additional financial support to enhance their educational experience.
