I always call West Babylon a gem. Throughout my 18 years of experience in the district, and 11 of those 18 in the school district, I have found caring, exciting, innovative, effective, interested teachers and an abundance of extra-curricular opportunities in music, art, sports, a terrific gifted and talented program (including Russian), Mock Trial, etc. and I've known students to start their own clubs. The administration is positive and works to help kids achieve positive things and deals with things effectively that are negative. Academically, if a student wants it, the curriculum available is terrific, varied, and will prepare a student for each successive step of their lives. For me, it is college, and I am fortuntate enough to be accepted to Emory University. I believe, along with family and religious influences, that my experiences with inspiring teachers and exploration of the extra-curricular interests in West Babylon have directly influenced this success.
