The Island School invites you to join us on Eleuthera and share your child’s semester experiences. The weekend will give you a window into what this journey means. To ensure an intimate and informative gathering, we ask that only family members join us for Parents Weekend. Eleuthera is a unique island that is fairly remote. There are no “Hertz or Avis and no Marriott”, which can can make it challenging to plan a trip to Eleuthera. We have dedicated team members here to help make accommodations, please see below contact information for your student’s term!
