"We are on our way with J.F.K."

John F. Kennedy Elementary School in West Babylon, New York, is a kindergarten through fifth grade public school. The school opened its doors, for the first time in September 1965. The school was named for the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who had been assassinated in Dallas, Texas, in 1963.

Our mission statement reads, "The community of John F. Kennedy Elementary School is committed to encouraging, empowering and engaging children as they are valued, for their individuality, and diverse capabilities. We emphasize the individual needs of the whole child while enhancing learning. We will provide a safe, nurturing learning environment while inspiring children to achieve academic potential as life long learners." The school's motto, "We're On Our Way With J.F.K." was suggested by the students of West Babylon, not long after the building opened.

The JFK staff works as a team to deliver high quality instruction that is aligned with our state learning standards. We are extremely proud of our school which has a well deserved reputation for excellence and friendliness. Please use this website as a resource for you, and your child.

West Babylon School District celebrated its homecoming with two days of fun-filled activities for the entire school community. On Sept. 30, West Babylon Senior High School held an outdoor pep rally with a carnival theme.

Bounce houses and food trucks were on site as well as carnival games for all ages to enjoy. The West Babylon cheerleaders kept the crowd engaged as they rallied to take on the Copiague Eagles for the football game on Saturday.

Due to the damp weather conditions, the West Babylon Senior High School classes didn’t have the opportunity to show off their homecoming floats. However, as game time approached, the rain cleared, and the community came together to show their support for the West Babylon Eagles. In the matchup against Copiague, the West Babylon football team were able to take home the win with a final score of 49-8. To close out the homecoming celebration, the West Babylon Senior High School held its homecoming dance on Saturday evening.
