Mashpee High School opened in 1996. Before then, Mashpee students attended neighboring Falmouth High School. In the early 1990s, Mashpee voted to open its own high school after the town had experienced an exponential increase in its population. Since 1970, Mashpee's town population has increased by ten times in size and was one of the state's fastest growing towns from 1970-2000. The town population as of the 2010 census is approximately 14,000 and the student population is roughly 1,700. As of 2015, The high school's principal is Mr. Mark Balestracci.
Mashpee High School originally served students in grades 7–12, but in 2008, the school board decided to separate high school students from the 7th and 8th grade students. Mashpee High School now served students in grades 9–12, and the 7th and 8th grade students attend the newly established Mashpee Middle School, which is located in the same building as Mashpee High School, but runs under its own administration, has its own teachers and staff, and has its own sports teams separate from the high school.
In 2014, the middle & high schools were once again consolidated to run under one administration. The middle school is represented by a headmaster who runs under direction of the principal. Due to the re-consolidation, 8th grade students in the school will be allowed to participate in high school level athletics, including the varsity level, while 7th graders will only be allowed to participate in middle school level athletics, unless certain athletic teams or programs are not offered at the middle school program. In which case, 7th graders will be allowed to compete in high school athletics at only the junior varsity level. The athletics waiver was granted by the MIAA and took effect during the 2015-2016 academic year.
Every year since 2004, Mashpee High School’s graduation has opened with a traditional Wampanoag language travel blessing, followed by a traditional Wampanoag drum circle song and performance by the "Red Hawk Singers", who perform two traditional travel and blessing Wampanoag songs.

Mashpee offers a wide variety of interscholastic sports. The Falcons are renowned for their highly competitive football, boys' basketball, and track & field teams. The football and boys' basketball teams have recently experienced exponential success and exposure. The football team has won three state championships (2011, 2015, 2016), and also won two league championships (2011, 2016). The boys' basketball team won league championships in 2011 and 2016, advanced to the state semi-finals in 2000 and 2001, and advanced to the state quarterfinals in 2009, 2011, and 2013.
Mashpee is affiliated with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA), and they are a member of the South Shore League, which competes at the Division 3 & 4 level of athletics in Massachusetts.
In 2016, the MIAA granted a statewide realignment of football based on a restructured enrollment system. Under this system, the football divisions will be expanded from six to eight divisions. Under this new alignment, Mashpee will compete at the Division 4 level of competition in football.
There are currently 10 members of the South Shore League. Member schools are Mashpee High School, Carver High School, Hull High School, Middleborough High School, Norwell High School, Cohasset High School, Rockland High School, Randolph High School, Abington High School and East Bridgewater High School. In 2015, the MIAA granted Monomoy Regional High School a release from the South Shore League, effective in the 2016-2017 academic year, in order to join the Cape & Islands League in all sports except football, which will pursue an independent schedule. In response, the MIAA granted Middleborough High School membership into the South Shore League for the 2016-2017 academic year.
Before joining the South Shore League in 2001, Mashpee was affiliated with the Patriot League, another Division 3 athletics conference. Also, the boys' and girls' winter track teams compete in the Eastern Athletic Conference, a Division 2 athletics conference. The girls' ice hockey team, which is a co-op program consisting of Mashpee High School, Bourne High School, Wareham High School and Old Rochester Regional High School (BMW-ORR), competes in the Southeastern Massachusetts Girls' Hockey League, which is a Division 2 athletics conference.
The boys' hockey team also has a cooperative agreement with nearby Monomoy Regional High School. The co-op team plays its home games at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center in Hyannis, MA and the Charles Moore Arena in Orleans, MA. Before their co-op with Monomoy, Mashpee had a long-standing co-op agreement with Upper Cape Tech, but was disbanded after the conclusion of the 2013-2014 season.
The name of Mashpee's home gymnasium is the Ronald R. Bock Gymnasium, in honor of the high schools' first athletic director. The name of Mashpee's home football field is the Michael S. Horne Stadium, which was re-dedicated on Thanksgiving Day in 2012 in honor of former long-time athletic director, coach, and teacher at Mashpee High School, Michael Horne.

Beginning in the Fall 2013, the South Shore League split into a Large & Small division for football. This coincides with the new and expanded MIAA football playoff format, and due to Randolph and Monomoy becoming members of the SSL. The SSL-Large (Abington, Rockland, East Bridgewater, Randolph, Norwell) will compete in Division 5 South, while the SSL-Small (Mashpee, Cohasset, Monomoy, Hull, Carver) will compete in Division 6 South. In 2015, the Large and Small league split was applied to all athletics offered by the SSL. Due to the departure of Monomoy and the entrance on Middleboro to the league in 2016, the divisions will be restructurd for the 2016-2017 academic year. Middleboro will compete in the Large division, while Abington will drop down and compete in the Small division. In 2015, the Large and Small division split of the South Shore League was applied to all athletics offered by the league.
Mashpee has developed into one of the most successful, consistent and dominant small school football programs in Massachusetts. Mashpee has developed into a powerhouse football team in Southeastern Massachusetts, and has one of the best winning percentages in the state since 2005. Mashpee's main rivals are Monomoy, Cohasset, Abington and Sandwich. Other rivals are Nauset and Falmouth.
Mashpee plays Sandwich on the annual Thanksgiving Day football game. From 1998–2003, the Falcons played neighboring Sandwich on Thanksgiving, but both teams dropped the rivalry after 2003 due to Sandwich having a larger enrillment than Mashpee, and also due to lack of competitiveness. Before the rivalry ended, Sandwich led the series, 4-2. From 2004–09, Mashpee played Cape Cod Regional Technical High School on Thanksgiving. They never lost a game to Cape Cod Tech during their six-year rivalry. After the 2009 season, the two teams discontinued the rivalry due to lack of competitiveness and Mashpee has since renewed its Thanksgiving rivalry with Sandwich. Since the renewal of the rivalry in 2009, Mashpee has gone 6-2 against Sandwich, and leads in the overall series, 8-6.
After the football team went through back-to-back winless seasons in 2000 and 2001, and from the years 2000–04 had a combined record of 6–42–2, Matt Triveri took over as head football coach in 2005. In his first year, the Falcons went 6–4 and missed out on the MIAA State Playoffs by one point. With Triveri at the helm, the football team has had a winning record in 11 out of Triveri's 12 seasons at the helm, and has amassed an overall record of 106–32. Furthermore, under Triveri, the football team has made it to nine South Shore League Championship games, won two League Championships, won three State Championships, made five state playoff appearances, and have been ranked in the Massachusetts Top 25 Polls four times (2008: #17, 2011: #13, 2012: #25, and 2015: #20), and has an 80% winning percentage. Triveri has become one of the most respected coaches in Massachusetts and is a 4-time South Shore League Coach of the Year, 4-time Cape & Islands Coach of the Year, the New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week in 2009, and was selected as the 2015 Massachusetts Coach of the Year by the New England Patriots and ESPN Boston. The team has competed in nine South Shore League championship games (2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), had the highest rated defense (points against average) in the state twice (2006 & 2008), and has produced several college football players at all levels.
