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.

Homecoming Festivities Shine


A rainy day didn’t dampen the spirit of the West Babylon community as the district celebrated its homecoming on Oct. 22.

 Starting with a pep rally the night before, students showed off their school spirit with dance and cheer performances. Even though the floats didn’t get to parade around the community due to the weather, all the hard work of the classes was still recognized as the floats parked in the Senior High School lot for all to see on Monday morning.    

For the big game, the Eagles took on the East Islip Redmen. Despite their best efforts and a fourth-quarter touchdown, the Eagles fell short and were defeated 26-6. A “Pirates of the Caribbean” themed halftime show was performed by the marching band.

Following the day’s festivities, the district joined together for a homecoming dance later in the evening, where the homecoming king and queen were announced.
