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 Feb. 1, West Babylon Senior High School’s  “Team Pandemonium!” robotics team competed in their last qualifier tournament of the 2020 FIRST Robotics Tech Challenge season. Every year, teams from all across Long Island battle it out in a series of qualifying tournaments for the chance to participate in the Long Island Championships. 

In their first qualifier on Jan. 12, the team finished in 16th place out of 24 teams. With only a few weeks in between qualifiers, students and coaches worked hard to improve on all aspects of their gameplay. 

After a long 11 hour day of robot inspections, judging interviews, 30+ rounds of matches, the West Babylon team finished in third place out of 26 teams. “Although we placed near the top, it wasn’t good enough to continue on to this year’s championships,” said teacher Gerard DeSimone. “While still a little disappointed about the championships we did succeed in achieving many of our teams yearly core goals. Those goals included reaching the elimination rounds, a top 4 finish, representing West Babylon in a positive way, and to giving our students a unique and special experience that they will value for the rest of their lives. “
