Washingtonville Senior High School is located on NY 94 in the village of Washingtonville, New York. It is the high school for the Washingtonville Central School District.

The adjacent middle school was once the high school.

WHS has received accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Washingtonville High School has set forth four particular goals: 1) Students will demonstrate increased academic performance (i.e. achieving mastery rate (85%) on NYS Regents Examinations); 2) Students will demonstrate preparation for and motivation to study at more rigorous levels of learning (i.e. Advanced Placement/College Courses); and 3) Students will be engaged within a positive social and emotional environment. 4) Students will expected to learn from past mistakes such as the Holocaust and Revolutionary War. In athletics, some of the school's rivals are Monroe-Woodbury in football and Warwick Valley in cross country and track and field. Perhaps Washingtonville's biggest rivalry is with the John Jay Patriots in club ice hockey. Games between the two can attract up to 150 people from each school at Ice Time in Newburgh or the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie.

The school recently completed an addition to the school.
