School Profile

Minuteman High School is located in Lexington, Massachusetts on a 65acre campus just west of Route 128/I-95 at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Marrett Road (Route 2A).  We are a four-year public high school serving sixteen partner communities, plus many other cities and towns in Eastern Massachusetts. The school is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and all of its programs operate under MGL Chapter 74 and the auspices of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Academic classes and career major classes are delivered on a weekly rotating system (one week academic, one week career major).  Enrollment is approximately 700 students across fifteen career majors. Academically, Minuteman offers a variety of courses in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Foreign Languages (Spanish, French and Latin), Music and Art.  Academic courses are offered at multiple levels including; advanced placement (AP), honors, college preparatory and supportive. 

Juniors and seniors in good standing may access our Cooperative Education Program which allows juniors and seniors an opportunity to work in their field of study during their shop week. In addition to a high school diploma, graduating seniors are eligible for industry credentials.  In many instances, the hours that students have earned while in their career major may be applied toward licensing and apprenticeship programs.  Certain programs allow qualified students to test out of a course, gain college credit while at Minuteman, or take a course through independent study or through a web based program.
