Old Rochester Regional High School (ORR) serves the towns of Marion, Mattapoisett, and Rochester in Plymouth County of Massachusetts, and was originally planned to include the neighboring town of Wareham. The school was originally built in 1961 and underwent a major renovation beginning in 2001. This project added additional classrooms and combined the high school with the adjacent Old Rochester Regional Junior High School. The student population is approximately 700 students. Although the school is named "Old Rochester", it is not located in the current town of Rochester. Instead, it was built in Mattapoisett. The name Old Rochester refers to the original town of Rochester which included all three towns served by ORRHS.
Old Rochester's school colors are red, white, and black. The mascot of the school is the bulldog. They are a member of the South Coast Conference, which competes at the Division 3 level of athletics in Massachusetts.
ORRHS offers a wide array of classes to students, and currently operates 11 departments.
