Masconomet Regional High School, is co-located with Masconomet Regional Middle School in Boxford, Massachusetts, United States and serves the towns of Boxford, Middleton and Topsfield. Masconomet Regional Middle School serves grades 7 and 8 while the Masconomet Regional High School serves grades 9 through 12. The current school superintendent is Michael Harvey.[5]Both schools are located on the same property, and share a cafeteria, gym, auditorium, and buses.[6]

Location

The school building housing both the regional middle and high schools is located on Endicott Street in Boxford off of Exit 51 on US Interstate 95. Masconomet lies at the intersection of the towns of Topsfield, Boxford and Middleton, the towns which it serves. The property is completely in Boxford, however, the mailing address was in Topsfield (until the 2014-15 school year) due to Boxford's post office being too small to handle all of Masco's mail upon the school's inception. Masconomet was created by a charter of the three towns created in 1959. Masconomet celebrated its 50th anniversary during the 2009-2010 school year.

History

Masconomet Regional High School was named after Chief Masconomet, sagamore of the Agawam tribe that lived in Essex County at the time of the English colonization. The original school building was constructed in 1959 and rebuilt in 2002. When the school was rebuilt in 2002, the old high school building was converted into a two-story middle school and a new three-story high school was built adjacent to the middle school facility.

Classes

Masconomet offers a large selection of academic course offering. A strong core curriculum is enhanced by a large selection of elective courses. Electives include courses in EMT training, co-taught science/social studies courses, forensics, 1960s course, early childhood, and a strong variety of computer education courses including computer gaming. In 2006 the Assistant Principal, Donald A. Doliber was named Assistant Principal of the Year and in 2008 David Mitchell was named National History Teacher of the Year.[7]

Masco plays in the Northeastern Conference. The school's colors are Alizarian Crimson & Eggshell    .

The football team has seen much success in the past decade with a number of playoff appearances. Masco returned to the Super Bowl for the second time in school history, facing Marshfield but lost 13-12.

In 2017 the football team had the opportunity to play against Everett High School in Fenway Park, the day before thanksgiving.

The Baseball team earned the Division II Massachusetts State Championship in 2000 by defeating Drury 7-2. They defeated the 22-0 Danvers squad in the second round, North Andover, and then Westford Academy to capture the North Section. They defeated Franklin in walk-off fashion after 8 innings in the state semi-final on their way to earning the first title in school baseball history.[]

In a 2012 lacrosse game against Boston College High School, senior Jake Gillespie scored a record-tying 9 goals. Gillespie now plays lacrosse for the Jumbos of Tufts University.

The boys' hockey team earned a Co-Cape Ann League title with Wilmington in the 2008-09 season, with an overall record of 14-5-2. Then again in 2013-2014 season, with North Reading and an overall record of 15-5-2.

In a December 8, 2019 game against the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs' equipment was accidentally delivered to New Jersey. A backup plan was apparently set for the Chiefs to use Masconomet helmets.[8]
