Smithtown West is a public high school located in Smithtown, Suffolk County, New York. The team regularly plays the Long Island circuit and is a competitor in Long Island's Regional Quiz Bowl league. The team has seen a recent resurgence in activity. In the 2015-2016 season, nine tournaments were played and they finally got their own QBWiki page. They also qualified for the HSNCT, NSC, and NAC in that year.

Smithtown was also a yearly competitor in MSG Varsity's The Challenge until the cancellation of the show.

They were also locally known for defeating East Brunswick three times during the 2015-2016 season, including one in the final of a tournament for their first-ever tourney victory; each of these wins was a massive upset.

The team hosted SWISS in September 2016; since then, Smithtown West has entered a long decline, though the team continues to be active in the 2019-2020 season.
