Monomoy Regional High School
The creation of a new regional school district provided the opportunity to bring together two neighboring Cape Cod towns – Harwich and Chatham. The new district is known as Monomoy, named for the Native Americans who originally populated the area. The new school provides a cultural and social focal point for 750 students in grades 8 through 12.
