Cohasset High School is a public high school located in Cohasset, Massachusetts, United States. It is located at 143 Pond St. and has an enrollment of 364 students in grades 9-12. The school's mascot is the Skippers and the school colors are navy blue, silver, and white. Cohasset Middle School is attached to Cohasset High School and is under its own administration and serves grades 6-8.

Cohasset High School is ranked 13th among public high schools in Massachusetts, according to a 2010 Massachusetts Department of Education survey. Around 59% of all students at Cohasset have taken or are enrolled in an Advanced Placement course.

Cohasset is known for its athletic program and also for its football, basketball, soccer, baseball and lacrosse teams, which have all won league and state titles. Home games in the fall and spring are played at Alumni Field. Cohasset was the first school in the South Shore League to install an artificial FieldTurf surface at their primary athletic field. Since then, East Bridgewater, Randolph, Monomoy, and Norwell have installed FieldTurf surfaces as well. Cohasset's current basketball teams for both the boys and girls programs are led by Massachusetts and New England Basketball Hall of Fame inductees Bo Ruggiero and John Levange respectively, both of whom have over 500 career victories as head coaches. The Skippers have found recent success since 2010, reaching the state finals in baseball, lacrosse, football, boys and girls basketball, and soccer. Cohasset annually graduates athletes whom go on to play D1, D2, and D3 sports at the NCAA level, primarily in lacrosse, baseball, basketball, and soccer.

Cohasset's major sports rivalries are Hull and Abington in most sports, except its hockey team (whose major rival is Norwell), the soccer team (in which it is recently Archbishop Williams and Norwell) and wrestling (in which it is Rockland and Scituate). Every year on Thanksgiving, Cohasset and Hull face off in the annual football game. Cohasset holds the Thanksgiving Day title.
