Welcome to Nantucket High School

A Message from Principal John Buckey

Bertram H. Holland
2012 Massachusetts High School Principal of the Year

Welcome to the Nantucket High School website and to the 2014-2015 academic year.  As we embark upon our 176th year of educating our island students, we maintain our fiercely proud tradition of academic, athletic and artistic excellence.  We offer a rich and relevant curriculum, which provides students myriad opportunities for authentic application of knowledge around Nantucket. Our school extends well beyond the walls of building; the island is our campus. We are guided in all we do by our mission: WHALER PRIDE.

Complementing our comprehensive curriculum is a wide-ranging athletic and co-curricular program.  With fifteen interscholastic athletic teams and an additional twenty plus clubs and activities, students have many opportunities to learn and grow beyond the traditional classroom.  Community service is a significant part of the Nantucket High School educational experience.


Our website is full of information about our school and our programs.  I welcome you to peruse the website and to contact us for additional information.  We look forward to another year of excellence in education.
