Nauset Regional High School was one of the best school systems in America. I'm a former student. I was an Airforce dependent.I have been in many school systems. This was the best academically speaking. Thanks for the great memories of teachers that are great and students that are unique.

Nauset High Schools faculty and administration are the best that I have ever seen. I have 3 children that have all attended different schools systems. My daughter attended Nauset on a school choice program. It was the best choice that we could have made for my over-achiever daughter. This schools fulfilled all of her requirements starting with a rigorous course of studies to extra curricular activities to travel and exchange programs.

Nauset District in genreal is top rate. While other districts are cutting programs and teachers, Nauset continues to find ways to keep stuff in place and work to add new if it warrants it. The kids are top of the state rankings which is acheived by great teachers. If you are looking for a great school move to the Nauset Region, you won't regret it

As a former nauset student ('93), and as someone who has seen lots of kids run through the school system since, I can honestly say that this is the best school I've encountered. Having worked in a number of schools, I now realize that I took for granted all the extracurriculars that I enjoyed so much back then. It was a great way to build lifelong friendships, and make high school one of the great experiences of my life!

The amazing outdoor campus paired with caring staff members adds to the wonderful feelings when visiting at the school. The after-school activities range from fencing and chess club, to football and swimming. There are many options for the non-athlete such as student council, student senate and national honor society. If this is not appealing to a student there are many opportunities to become an active member of the class while fundraising for graduation. For the fine and applied arts inclined student, there are classes which range from art metal to guitar building along with after school world music classes. The chorus program is ranked among top schools having been invited to sign at Carnegie Hall multiple times. Nauset offers many opportunities to every type of student having numerous levels of classes from B-level, to A-level, to honors and AP. The teachers have a passion for the students to learn.

This is one of the best schools in the state. It has an unconventional campus (and a short distance from the beach!) and offers the opportunities of a lifetime for those who are willing to get involved. One of the best experiences of my life. Thank you, Nauset!

This is a great school for those who excel in a social environment. However if your child is not an athlete or honors student, they tend to be over looked. This sometimes has lead to students feeling alienated by this school. There are some really note worthy teachers at this school and a few teachers who should consider a career change. The school does offer a variety of activities to their students.

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.
