Babylon Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Babylon Junior Senior High School located in Babylon, NY has been a awesome school for me. I’ve learned many great things that I will be taking with me when I leave. I’ve even played Junior Tennis there. Many teachers and staff there are very caring and they truly want to help you be the best. I will miss many things at Babylon H.S. But will be taking the knowledge and experience I have had with me to College. I thank everyone for their help and support since my first year.
It's nice because it's a pretty small school and it's pretty safe. Wish it was a nicer and more updated school.
Babylon is a nice community and their high school is an excellent building. The staff are truly dedicated and help the students daily. Overall, the environment is very engaging
Babylon Junior Senior High School is small school located in Babylon New York. The faculty is amazing as they are some of the friendliest people you will meet, the average graduating class size is around 130 so it is exceptionally small. Like everything else, this has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. Everybody knows everybody but at the same time its nice to be apart of a community where everyone knows your name.
The school has a very good learning environment. The teachers are kind and try very hard to help you succeed.
I do love Babylon and on paper it seems very attractive to families looking for a place to settle. However, some of the things that many love when they first move here, I got sick of after living here for so many years. Babylon is extremely small, so everyone knows everything that's going on in your life, and on top of that, Babylon is very clichey. Additionally, since Babylon is so small, they don't offer a lot of classes that many other schools on Long Island offer. Additionally, Babylon isn't diverse in the slightest. Babylon is mostly white Catholics. Babylon has some great teachers that really prepare you for AP tests and regents, but it also has many teachers that will give you a 100 for anything, which doesn't prepare you for the future or college in the slightest. Also, Babylon is very competitive, which can be seen as either good or bad. Babylon is extremely safe though. For parents, a lot of the policies are really good, but for students it's inconvenient.
I would like to see administration change the way they favor kids and students and how they target some.
Babylon is a wonderful community, and the opportunities presented to every student to prosper, are endless. The faculty at Babylon Junior Senior High School are among the best educators in New York State. Aside from these teachers' ability to educate students, they are also able establish a deep connection and bond with each one of their students. The staff at Babylon is extremely supportive, and the staff members make school exciting.
I liked the size and the attitude of the teachers. Everyone was very nice and the teachers were lenient on assignments when other assignments were due for other classes.
I went to Babylon JR.SR High school and had a great time. I was one of those kids that didn't do sport and I was treated fine. I learn a lot from the school, great teachers and club. I wasn't bullied and most people were good. It was also nice that the school is located in the center of the village meaning high school students can go off campus and go into town for their lunch and break periods.
In babylon you get a little bit of everything! Racism, bullying, sexism, there’s plenty to go around. Your children will feel worthless and insignificant if they aren’t in any sports, and good luck trying to get on any team when your not friends with “that” crowd, because “that” crowd’s parents run all the teams. I remember my first week of school here, 12 years old in 7th grade with high hopes of continuing on with soccer (I was playing with the town for 4 years) and my dreams were shattered when I showed up to soccer tryouts and was told “this isn’t drama class” and laughed at. HOW EMBARRASSING. I was 12 years old thinking it was me who was embarassing, but a grown man making a child feel like trash? THATS BABYLON in a nutshell. I won’t even begin the conversations of rumors entertained by teachers and parents. These are grown ups! My entire high school life was ruined going here. I wish I left when I had the chance.
The school enviornment is truly a great place to learn and grow as a student. Everything is quite personal, teachers are amazing, as well as athletics and staff. Babylon high School establishes a welcoming enviornment to everyone. With great safety and security, this school is a great place to be and be apart of.
Love the small district! Lots of course offerings, friendly people. There is extra assistance offered before or after school as needed. There are a good amount of club offerings. Volunteer work is encouraged.
Babylon Junior/Senior High School is like going to a private school without paying. The school consists of 7th-12th graders. We offer a wide range of clubs and activities for all students. We have one of the highest ranked sports programs on the island. The coaches and teachers are dedicated to their jobs and go over and beyond to make sure we are college and career ready. We are a close knit community that raises tons of money for different organizations and charities throughout the year.
Many of the teachers are enthusiastic about their work and encourage students to do their best- especially in the science department.
Very small school district. Most people have the same teachers more than once. Not a very large selection of AP/College/Honors courses to take and there are no IB classes offered. There are a few very good teachers but there should be a stronger emphasis on college preparation and readiness.
The students and faculty were amazing. They made going to school fun everyday and enjoyable. The athletics were also very good at this school and very competitive.
