Falmouth High School is a public high school located in the town of Falmouth, Maine. The school serves roughly 720 students in grades 9–12. Located on the Woodville Road Campus, the current Falmouth High School was completed in 2001, and opened for the 2001–2002 school year. Previously the school was shared with Falmouth Middle School, and from 1930 to 1955 was in the Plummer-Motz building located on the corner of Middle and Lunt Roads. Falmouth High School is located near the geographic center of town, and is abutted by Falmouth's Community park. The school's athletic teams are called the Yachtsmen, and the school colors are blue and gold.

In November 2008, the citizens of Falmouth rejected a reorganization plan to consolidate[1] with the nearby district of SAD 51, which comprises Cumberland, Maine, and North Yarmouth, Maine. Falmouth has since filed and had approved an alternative reorganization plan[2] allowing it to remain an independent district.
