Seekonk High School is a public high school operated by Seekonk Public Schools in Seekonk, Massachusetts. It serves the district's 9–12 student population. The school's mission statement is "All students will achieve their maximum potential by becoming responsible, productive citizens and life-long learners."
The class of 1967 was the first to graduate from Seekonk High (June, 1967). Seekonk students prior to this attended high school at nearby East Providence High School in East Providence, Rhode Island or Tolman High School in Pawtucket, Rhode Island depending on the area of town they resided in or private high schools. When East Providence High School was unable to continue accepting Seekonk students the class of 1966 students from the south end of town attended Dighton Rehoboth High School. The newly constructed Seekonk High School was finished in time for class of 1967 to return for their Junior year (1965–66). Some of the students chose to remain at Dighton Rehoboth or other schools. In 2001, the school was renovated and a larger pool was added.
