History[edit]

Rockport has had four different high school buildings. The first building was built in 1865 and now serves as the Rockport Community Center. The second building, located at 4 Broadway, was built in 1925, and served the school system in a variety of capacities until 1988. The high school was moved in the 1960s to the George Tarr School, a converted 1904 textile mill building adjacent to the 1925 building. The high school moved into the present facilities in 1988.[2]

Both the 1865 building and the 1925 building are listed on the National Register of Historic Places (the former as "Old Rockport High School", the latter as "Rockport High School").[1]
