"The present Oyster Bay High School building was erected on East Main Street and was ready for occupancy in February 1929. It contained all grades, elementary through senior high school. On July 1, 1960, the Oyster Bay and East Norwich School Districts were combined into the new Central School District Number Six. Shortly after, growth made an overlapping ten period schedule necessary in order to provide the needed classroom space. Eight years later, the school was divided into junior/senior high schools operating as a morning session for the senior high school (Grades 9-12) and an afternoon session for the junior high school (Grades 7-8). In September, 1973, the High School became a Grade 9-12 facility, with eight periods per day. As of September, 1988, a nine period day was introduced in order to provide greater flexibility in scheduling for our students.

On May 16, 1989, Oyster Bay High School was designated a "High School of Excellence" by the United States Department of Education in Washington, D.C., for being one of the best schools in America. In October 1997, a bond referendum was passed by the Oyster Bay community. Among the projects funded were the construction of a new gymnasium and a new library-media center at the High School. Additionally, the Board of Education decided to move Grades 7 and 8 from Vernon School back to the high school in September 1999."
