The Fishers Island School

This section is dedicated to documenting and celebrating the Fishers Island School, from its beginnings in a one room schoolhouse on Oriental Ave. circa 1888 (later two rooms, today the F.I. Library), through the period from 1916 to 1971 when the second school on Montauk Ave. ably served our community—initially educating students at the primary and intermediate level, but expanding to include high school classes beginning in the late 1920s—to today’s dynamic Pre-K to 12 institution that opened on the former site of Fort H.G. Wright’s brick barracks in the fall of 1972.

Yearbooks, photographs, documents, and ephemera will be featured with new content added and old content subtracted over time.
