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.
Cohasset High School was a very tight knit community in which peers all knew one another and were well supported by teachers and one another. The guidance counselors could have been more helpful during the college application process, though once I got to college I felt academically prepared.
