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.

The West Babylon School District, in partnership with the West Babylon Alumni Foundation, unveiled their Hall of Fame in the Senior High School lobby with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 27.

District administrators, board of education members, Alumni Foundation members and inductees joined together for the official unveiling of the wall. “The Alumni Foundation helps to secure and distribute thousands of dollars in scholarships for our students every year,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Yiendhy Farrelly. “The foundation continues to perpetuate unique opportunities for our students while also recognizing the accomplishments of our alumni. This Hall of Fame is a great tribute to the many individuals who have contributed to our school district.”

The Hall of Fame was constructed by two former alumni – Michael Nieto (Class of 2016) and Brianna Ramsey (Class of 2017) – under the direction of technology teacher Eugene Rogovitz. The new display will serve to establish a set of values and a way of inspiring all the students who walk through the doors. West Babylon Alumni Foundation president Ralph Rienzo said it helps continue the traditions set in West Babylon and reinforces the motto of “once an Eagle, always an Eagle.”
