I graduated a few years ago from this school. It has some good teachers, and some bad teachers. The bad ones always seemed to stick around for way too long, and would make actually learning about the subject nearly impossible. The good ones would either leave, or would only teach certain classes. There was some blatant sexism going on in between the lines. Girls are limited to wearing clothing based on a strict regimen (because this would be somehow "distracting", which is textbook sexism), while boys are allowed to wear their pants down past their rear. Additionally, not allowing people to go to bathroom when needed? Wrong. The classes were fine, but the social aspect was annoying. Teachers who were there that obviously did not like to teach really should not have been. They made students miserable and caused extra difficulty to get decent grades. I digress, the class choices and curriculum were not bad, and most of the people were decent. I just wish they would get the rules and regulations into the 21st century where they should be.

This school is a typical high school, it has highs and lows. When I was a student here the nooks were old, the desks were older, but some of the staff was amazing. Ms. Mac was a wonderful teacher and the school should try to hire teachers similar to the passion she had for teaching.

Decent administration, but many of the teachers need to just hang it up and retire. Mr. Antani is a beacon in this school. Greatest teacher and leader the school has and he's earned everyone of the 5 stars I've given to the school's teacher quality with everything I've seen him do (I hear this from my kids and a gaggle of other parents and their kids, too), but I doubt they'll be smart enough to keep him and the few others like him. School is just not what it used to be, sadly.

I graduated from Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School in 2006. The faculty and facilities are excellent. Much better than many schools in the area.

Teachers get high marks. Administration needs to explain where the money goes to the taxpayers

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
