Mashpee High School ranked 17th in Massachusetts and 95th in the Northeast.

This marks the eighth year in a row that Sturgis was ranked one of the top schools in the US by the Washington Post. Mashpee is the only other Cape Cod high school in the top 100 ranked by The Post.

The Washington Post index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).
