High Schools in Wareham


The Wareham school district in Massachusetts is home to two high schools: Wareham Senior High and Wareham Cooperative Alternative School. While Wareham Senior High is the larger of the two with 626 students, it has consistently underperformed, ranking 277 out of 347 Massachusetts high schools and scoring just 1 star from SchoolDigger. In contrast, the smaller Wareham Cooperative Alternative School, with only 33 students, has an even lower ranking of 340 out of 340 and a 0-star rating.

Wareham Senior High's academic performance is a concern, with significantly lower proficiency rates on MCAS assessments compared to the state average across English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. The school also has a relatively high student-teacher ratio of 9.9, despite spending more per student ($21,824) than the alternative school ($11,602). The alternative school, on the other hand, has limited historical data available, making it difficult to assess its effectiveness in serving its small student population.

Demographic differences between the two schools are also noteworthy, with Wareham Senior High having a more diverse student body (65.81% White, 11.02% African American, 7.99% Hispanic, 12.94% two or more races) compared to the alternative school (78.79% White, 3.03% African American, 3.03% Hispanic, 6.06% two or more races). This may indicate potential equity issues within the district that warrant further investigation to ensure all students have access to a high-quality education.
