Babylon's teachers believe that our little town is a special place. We are very proud of our students' accomplishments and hard work. We are also confident that your children's teachers are some of the most dedicated and influential educators in the field.
We hope that as our new site develops, you will check back in from time to time to peruse some of the links as we attempt to celebrate and honor both students and teachers that make our town unlike any other on Long Island!
We are proud to serve you, your children and the Babylon community.
