The school itself is wonderful. Grades 9 through 12 are generally all very close and caring for each other. In mostly 7th and 8th the kids are "cliquey". When the children end up growing out of that phase everyone's just nice with each other. The teachers try to teach as best as they can not to say that their aren't a few that fall through the cracks but for the most part they teach well and make sure the students stay focused. I saw that there was a previous post about how the principle isn't involved and what-not I agree Mr. Visbal wasn't a good principle but this year we have gotten a new principle Mr. Cirone and he is wonderful. He is involved with absolutely everything he knows every student by name and he's very easy to get along with and tries to suit the needs of the students as best he can.

This school is bad. i hate it and it is way too small. out of the 10 teachers i have i like ONE. the academics is bad and they give no good oppurtunitys to those who excell. it is WAY to small for the people that go there and i am hopeing to go somehwere else. way to cliquey and not very good. the teachers are rude and have NO RESPECt.
This school needs some improvements made 1st a principal that cares what is going on in the building instead of just sitting in his office. Next if you make a dress code it should be abided by not just put on paper. Last maybe they should take notes from the grade school and work on the character in the building. This year is Mr. Visbal's last year maybe we get a principal that cares about the school and not the money.
Horrible detestable service in NUMEROUS programs the school offers. For example the summer school of year 2010 offered NO transportation and the school could no longer afford it so the summer school was in other far off towns...again the school offered NO TRANSPORTATION. Also on several occasions I've attempted to get in contact with the principal in regards to a mistake the school made on my childs credits and the principal avoided me. I pity the students and staff of this decrepit school system known as BHS.
School is just OK. Lack of disipline. Very cliquey...Not a lot of academic choices. Teachers are overwhelmed with teaching 7-12 rather than just H.S. students. My child has been exposed to too much too quickly as a 7th grader becaue of the mix of Jr/Sr kids..
Great school It has heart. You will find truly amazing athletes here as well
I have been a student and/or a parent in this school distict for over 43 years. The academic programs offered are diverse and if you seek it out you will find what you are looking for. Some sports teams get more attention than others and the 'no-cut' rule in the lower grades 7th & 8th do not teach the children about the real world. getting cut only makes you want to strive to be better.
i am an 8th grader here and this school is anoying becasue there arent many kids there so u only know a limited amout of people however the education is good but we stink at sports because of our stupid no cut rules for the 7th and 8th graders
I graduated from this school in 2002 after moving into the area before my sophomore year. Yes it is somewhat crowded with grades 7-12 there but it is a great school for academics has a wide variety of extracurriculars and the administration really doesn't allow for any riots to start. You can complain about certain teams being forced to the other nearby schools but this is a great safe school to send your kids to.
I believe Babylon Junior/Senior High School is a good school however you must stay involved with your child because even though this school is small your child can 'fall between the cracks' if you do not know what your childs weaknesses are. I also think this school focuses too much on athletics allowing kids to skip last periods to go to games or meets.
Because it is a small school it seems somewhat limited in advanced courses that are offered. The school has a lot of extracurricular activities to choose from.
Though i think that this is a great school it needs alot more space for the amount of students there. I know that babylon is a small town and space is limmited but it is rediculous. The pick-ups are horrid crowded and someone will get killed. The offerings for the school are also a bit limited. I think the acidemics are fine but the things like water fountians ect need to be fixed. The feild space is horrible it is aful that kids have to go the the elementary schools for socer volleyball ect while most boy sports are kept at the high school itself. If the want sports why should the kids have to go somewhere else. in particular this seasons volleyball vs basketball why did girls volleyball get kicked to the little little k-2 school because the big high school had no room. UGH.
