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.

More than 60 years of tradition was on full display as West Babylon Senior High School hosted its annual Blue & Gold competition from April 11-13. This year’s battle was superheroes and villians vs. horror movies. The stands were packed in a sea of blue and gold as the community came out in full force to support their favorite school color. The student-artists showed off their creativity as the school’s gymnasium was transformed into a work of art. The members of the props team showed off their skills, while the dance routines and choreography showcased the high level of talent. Following their entrances, each team showed off their routines with calisthenics, lyrical, hip-hop and marching performances. With three sold-out performances, the annual Blue and Gold awards more than $10,000 in student scholarships annually.
