  • Masco Hosts North Shore Science League

    Posted by Peter Delani on 4/10/2019 11:00:00 AM


    (*Not all members were present for the photo.)

    The Masconomet Science Team hosted the last North Shore Science League of the year yesterday. The meet was packed with activity and excitement. Not only did students compete in the three league events: Carbon Chemistry, Corals and Sail Car build they also competed in a Science Potpourri social event which focused on having students from four different schools collaborate. It was a tense meet with very little differential between the top five schools but I can proudly say that at the end of the meet the Masconomet Science team finished fifth for the year in a very competitive league. They were presented with acrylic trophy for their hard work. Congratulations to Masconomet’s Science Team for another great year!

  • Early Childhood Class Hosts Little Ones

    Posted by Peter Delani on 4/2/2019 6:00:00 AM


    The Early Childhood class recently hosted a wonderful day of administering and teaching a Daycare program, for the staff’s children at Masconomet. This day is a part of a culminating project for our seniors and juniors. For the Early Childhood student’s, it allows them to have a hands-on experience to apply their knowledge about child development. The ability to experience teaching a child allows our student’s further insight into the behaviors of the child as well as how to problem solve. It also allows our student’s to be assessed in an environment that many of them excel in.

     This year the student’s implemented a sensory walk, chose music that helps control or change the classroom environment, and researched classroom design. The Early Childhood class will now use this experience and observations as a platform for further inquiry of elementary into adolescent hood.

     We thank everyone who participated and allowed this experience to happen.  Kim Marini

    Posted by Peter Delani on 4/1/2019 12:00:00 PM


    Congratulations to junior Mira Plante for her performance at Le Concours oratoire, a French speech contest hosted by the local chapter of Le Club Richelieu. Mira competed against other local students by writing and performing a speech entirely in French. This year's topic was, “Choose a Francophone writer from the 20th century that you admire and tell us why.” Mira delivered an articulate and introspective speech about how French poet Anne-Marie Albiach has influenced her life. She won a cash prize and the honor of being named one of the area’s top French orators!

  • Environmental Club Presents PLASTIC OCEANS

    Posted by Peter Delani on 4/1/2019 6:00:00 AM


    On March 28th the Environmental Club hosted their yearly movie screening for the Masconomet community. More than 250 people (including staff and students in both the middle and high schools) came out to see A Plastic Ocean. This 2016 documentary film follows a team of international scientists on adventures in more than 20 locations as they explore and expose the causes and consequences of plastic pollution. Though the event was free to attendees, the club raised over $300.00 through donations and from the sale of snacks, stickers, and stainless steel straws; this money has been donated to the Surfrider Foundation, whose mission is to protect our oceans and beaches from pollution.


    The Environmental Club would like to thank the staff, students, and community for their continued support of the club’s events and initiatives. This spring they will be helping to run Earth Day events in Middleton and Topsfield; launching a campaign against the use of plastic straws, which includes the sale of stainless steel straws; continuing their sale of club stickers; promoting textile recycling using the bins on school property; and working to bring composting to the school cafeteria. Stay tuned for more information on each of these exciting developments!

  • Coach of the Year!

    Posted by Peter Delani on 3/21/2019 11:45:00 AM

    Congratulations to our gymnastics coach, Alicia Gomes, who was named Boston Globe Coach of The Year!

    Pictured, with the team, after winning the state championship a few weeks ago:


    “The bond this team has is what makes it special. Every gymnast is vital to the success of this team,” said Coach Gomes. “Even those gymnasts that didn’t compete in Sectionals and States played a huge role in our success. As a team we create an environment in which every gymnast can thrive and do their personal best.”

  • Masco Teachers Present Essex County History Project at NERC Conference

    Posted by Peter Delani on 3/19/2019 7:00:00 AM


    Masconomet High School Teachers Pete Magner, Kim Marini, and Ellen Sheehy presented on the Essex County History Project at the 49th Annual Northeast Regional Conference for the Social Studies at Framingham State. Their presentation was amazing and well received! Congratulations!!! 

    Workshop Description:

    The Masconomet Social Studies Department has implemented a semester long project to coincide with the study of American History. The objective of the project is to encourage students to research history "in their own backyards" and place local historical sites in context of the social, economic, and political development of Essex County, and, by extension, the United States. Using Essex County Heritage Commission and Essex National Heritage Area as a starting point, students are expected to choose an historical site located in Essex County to visit, research, and write about, with the culminating product involving the creation of a brief documentary film about the site. The focus of the project may vary by student. Some may be interested in a major event related to the site. Others may want to explore the architecture and styles that developed during the time period. Students also may want to tell the story of the family who lived in an historic house and how those people played a role in the region. The workshop will be led to two teachers who have developed and implemented the project in their classes. They will discuss how the project has evolved over the years and offer suggestions for teachers to develop similar projects in their districts.

Our Mission

  • Learning Is Life

    The Masconomet High School community believes that learning enables us all to achieve ambitious personal goals, develop fine minds, and build strong character.  Therefore, we foster the acquisition of attitudes, skills, and knowledge necessary for life-long learners to think critically in order to participate in a global society. 

    Upon graduation, students will have demonstrated that they have embraced this mission by meeting the academic, social and civic expectations.
