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.

This year, the Senior High School added a new course to its business education department called Social Media: The Digital Generation.

In the course, students learn how to utilize the power of the internet and social media to enhance their understanding of its relationship to successful business practices. Some of the topics explored include building a strong web presence, leveraging social media, creating and uploading video content, exploring blended and distance learning and using mobile devices as learning tools. Students engage in a cross-district, multischool collaborative project focusing on the creation of a positive and sustainable web presence and digital profile.

West Babylon students collaborate with students from other Long Island districts through Google and face-to-face onsite meetings. The students compete in groups and work on a final presentation about the impact of the internet and social media. On Oct. 12, 23 Senior High School students attended the kickoff meeting at SUNY Stony Brook. Students were grouped with those from other districts, participated in team-building activities, were introduced to their topic for presentation and gave an elevator pitch of their ideas. 

“Digital Generation is a blended learning course that helps students use the power of the internet and social media to enhance web presence, digital profile and build a personal brand,” said Katharine Reilly-Johnson, 9-12 Business Ed., F.A.C.S. and Tech. Ed. chairperson. “Students explore how social media affects society, the economy, privacy, misinformation, relationships and entrepreneurship.”
