The school serves six towns in the Monadnock region, including Fitzwilliam, Gilsum, Richmond, Roxbury, Swanzey, and Troy. Monadnock was established in 1962 when the district was founded, and named after a nearby landmark, Mount Monadnock.


Until the fall of 2006, the high school operated on a 7-period schedule, with the fifth period divided into three 25-minute lunches. Until 2013, the school schedule consisted of eight, 47 minute long periods. In 2013 the school switched to a rotating block schedule with 5 blocks and an advisory period. The first and last blocks (A and E) meet every day for 50 minutes, as does the 45 minute advisory block. Blocks B and C are 75 minutes long, and Block D is 108 minutes (75 min. class, 27 min lunch). Block B, C, and D classes rotate on a 5 period rotation, 3 classes meeting per day. This allows the school to effectively offer 7 periods every semester even though only 5 are offered on any given day. There are three lunches; one lunch before Block D class, one halfway through Block D class, and one after Block D class. School days run from 7:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Schedules consist of 7 periods, periods 2,3,4,5, and 6 rotate each day throughout blocks B,C and D. Day 1 is 2,3,4 the next day is 5,6,2 then 3,4,5, and so on until day 5. On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, students are allowed to stay after and ride "late buses" to their homes. In 2015, the school switched to block scheduling.

Middle school[edit]

The middle school is no longer considered separate from the high school. The middle school had adapted to using the high school bell, meaning they run on the same schedule, but even though the high school schedule has changed, the middle school's remains the same. They use a rotating block schedule with 7 blocks, 45 minutes each. There are two lunches, one for 8th grade and one for 7th, and each grade has an advisory class when the other is having lunch. School days run from 7:30 AM to 2:30 PM. The middle school operate in the same building as the high school and share many facilities, including the gymnasium, the library, the auditorium and various specialized classrooms such as the woodshop, art rooms, and tech labs (VEX Classes).
