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.

On Jan. 30, West Babylon Senior High School dedicated one of its gymnasiums to Jim Lynch and the late Frank Taplin – two longtime basketball coaches and faculty members – who had a lasting impact on the school district and its basketball program.

In addition to their many years of coaching the boys basketball team, Lynch was a teacher in the district and also served as an assistant principal at the Senior High School, while Taplin served as a guidance counselor. 

“To the administration and faculty of West Babylon, thank you for your friendship and support over 40 years,” Lynch said. “You all made West Babylon a wonderful place to work.”

The West Babylon Board of Education voted to dedicate the gymnasium to the two individuals and presented Lynch and Taplin’s family with plaques. Lynch spent 48 years teaching in West Babylon, and both Lynch and Taplin spent 26 years coaching the basketball team. During that time, the team went to the playoffs 19 times, was named league champs four times, and received numerous other honors in their section and state.
