Monomoy Regional High School is a regional secondary school located in Harwich, Massachusetts, within Barnstable County. Monomoy Regional High School serves approximately 625 students in grades 8-12 from the towns of Chatham and Harwich.

Construction of the high school was completed in early 2014 and officially opened in September 2014. The school's mascot is the Sharks and the school colors are Navy Blue & Silver.

Athletics[edit]

All the athletic teams from Harwich High School and Chatham High School began competing cooperatively as the Monomoy Sharks in Fall 2012 for all sports offered by both schools.

Monomoy offers 20 interscholastic athletic teams along with multiple club and intramural teams. As of 2016, Monomoy is a member of the Cape & Islands League, which competes in the Division 4 level of athletic competition in Massachusetts, and is affiliated with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association.

In May 2015, Monomoy Regional High School gained approval from the South Shore League at the annual league meeting to leave the league and join the Cape & Islands League,[4] citing travel expenses and competition as the main factors regarding their departure. Monomoy was a member of the South Shore League since the mid-1990s. The change will take effect during the beginning of the 2016–17 academic year. The football team's league affiliation is in question due to the change, as the Cape & Islands League does not sponsor football. Ultimately, the Sharks will either continue to compete in the South Shore League as a football only member, or pursue an independent schedule with no league affiliation. With the departure of Monomoy, Mashpee High School is left as the South Shore League's lone representative from Cape Cod.

Recent Success in Sports: The Monomoy High School's Basketball team went from 1-19 in 2015-2016 while competing in the South Shore League to 15-6 after switching into the Cape and Islands League. The team went under a controversial time after the school's administration decided to fire beloved Coach Adam Rose. Monomoy then hired Coach Keith Arnold a former DY and Nauset boys basketball coach to take over. The team won the Cape and Islands Large League Title and also made it to the Division 4 South Sectional Finals as the #9 seed after beating Sturgis East, Southeastern, and Old Colony in the MIAA tournament. Players Nick Meehan, Chris Mazulis and Eli Nickerson were vital to this team's success.
