High Schools in Methuen


Methuen, Massachusetts is home to a single high school, Methuen High School, which serves students in grades 9-12. While the school has a diverse student population, its academic performance has been declining in recent years, with proficiency rates on state assessments falling below the Massachusetts averages.

Methuen High School is currently ranked 243 out of 347 high schools in the state, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's ranking has dropped from 225 out of 342 schools in 2021-2022 to 207 out of 285 schools in 2020-2021, indicating a concerning trend. Proficiency rates on the MCAS Next Generation assessments are also below the state averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science.

Despite the school's declining performance, it appears to have adequate resources, with a student-teacher ratio of 12.9 and per-student spending of $13,805. The diverse student population, which is 39.82% White, 48.17% Hispanic, 5.53% African American, and 4.38% Asian, presents both opportunities and challenges for the school in addressing the unique needs of its learners. Moving forward, Methuen High School may need to evaluate its curriculum, teaching methods, and student support strategies to improve academic outcomes and better prepare its students for success.
