Welcome to the West Babylon Senior high School. West Babylon High School is a comprehensive high school that offers a diverse academic program while promoting the arts, business and technology, and family and consumer sciences. Our students are being made college and career ready in order to succeed in the 21st century workplace and the world. Our Social, Emotional and Academic Learning program, entering its sixth year, parallels  the Dignity for All Students Act, and is the foundation for creating a safe learning environment in which our students can learn and develop the emotional competencies that lead to success in the 21st century world for which they are being prepared.

Our co curricular activities, including our athletic teams, mirror this focus. and add to the total development of our students.  Groups such as our GSA and LEO clubs lead the school in activities that teach acceptance, compassion, empathy and service to others.  Our students develop their leadership skills in the classroom, in their clubs and organizations and on the athletic fields.  They are ready when they leave the high school to assume these roles and successfully further their studies and work.
