Cohasset Middle/High School Reviews
As the town is ~97 % white the school lacks diversity. It has a MetCo program which busses intercity students (mostly of color) to our school. Although many members of the program had gone to school since kindergarten, there was clear segregation. I never witnessed direct bullying because of race; however, Cohasset's environment is such that non-African American/non-Black kids starting around eighth grade will use the n-word casually. They excuse it saying they would never use it around a black person. People also use words like fag and gay as insults constantly. The community is most often compared to a bubble, as many of the youth and families feel safe to excersize their prejudiced language and discrimination. As both a bisexual woman and a latina, I felt as though many of the community members lacked basic empathy and valued image over all else. There were limited opportunities to grow or even find exposure in non-sport activities. But my teachers were incredible!
Cohasset High is NOT THAT GOOD OF A SCHOOL. The only reason why Cohasset performs reasonably well in the rankings is that it has a critical mass of privileged kids. The high school itself does not do anything special. Students are pushed through the system and are given inflated grades in order to make the school look better. There are a handful of caring and talented teachers, but they are far outnumbered by the mediocre. Cohasset is AWFUL at math, science, and technology education, as well as foreign language instruction. The school is overcrowded and class sizes in recent years have ballooned. There is minimal diversity and I would go so far to say that the student body is at least passively racist. Cohasset prioritizes sports over all else (and it's not even that good at sports!), meaning that there are minimal opportunities for students to succeed in other fields (debate, math, journalism). Stay away from Cohasset High. There are equally expensive towns with better schools.
I would steer clear, don’t let the front that put on get you. At first Cohasset comes off as a great school but it isn’t, the middle school is an A+ but the high-school is a F. While their are some great caring teachers, the majority legit do not give a care in the world for their students. Many times the teacher gets up out of class and leaves, which is so weird. The head football coach, who is also the AP history teacher, was always very rude to me as a parent and when I would try to ask him questions he would respond with short cut “I’m in a rush” questions. From what I’ve watched the sports were quite bad and my sons teams got humiliated every year making the experience for him and us as spectators horrible. Their is also absolutely no diversity.
