As we enter the 21st century, the Cohasset Schools share a common vision for their students, faculty and community. Cohasset Schools shall enable each student to understand the past, examine the present and prepare for the future.
Cohasset Schools seek to graduate students who will recognize their abilities, develop a love of learning, fulfill their potential and use their talents to meet post-high school goals. We believe Cohasset students should be confident enough to explore, discover, create, think critically, and communicate effectively.
