Island City School has three open areas that house the first grades, third grades and second and fifth grade classrooms. Each of these classrooms is open to the spacious media center. The school also has a separate classroom for another second grade. Four modular classrooms house the two fourth grades, another fifth grade and a music / counselor’s room.
