Minuteman High School is an award-winning public high school located in the heart of Lexington, Massachusetts, just west of Boston, in a district that is steeped in Revolutionary War history. The school sits on a 65-acre campus just west of Route 128 / I-95 at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Marrett Road (Route 2A).
As a regional vocational-technical high school, Minuteman serves students from a select group of member towns and from a host of non-member cities and towns in Eastern Massachusetts.
Minuteman is a four-year public high school. All of its programs operate under the auspices of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 74.
The school is an accredited member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
Established in the 1970s, Minuteman is one of more than two dozen vocational-technical high schools in Massachusetts. Over the years, the school has distinguished itself by building a reputation for excellence. Its students consistently excel on the larger stage and have won numerous awards at state and national competitions.
In late 2016, voters in the Minuteman School District overwhelmingly approved funding for a brand new school to replace the one built more than 40 years ago. With financial assistance from the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), the new $144.9 million school is being built on District property adjacent to the existing school. The new school is expected to be ready for occupancy in late 2019.
