About and history

The school consists of 8 main buildings (A-G, and the newest building, N) surrounding an open courtyard. Nauset recently built a brand new fitness center adjacent to the gymnasium. Students and faculty may use the gym free of charge and alumni can purchase a membership. The school is named after a small Native American tribe that lived in the area before it was settled by colonists. Nauset High school serves students from the communities of Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown. Nauset also offers an open enrollment program for students located in the towns of Dennis, Harwich and Chatham. Nauset's mascot is the Warrior and the schools colors are Black and Gold.

In 2010, the Provincetown School Board elected to shut down Provincetown High School by the end of the 2012-2013 academic school year due to falling enrollment and lack of funds. The Provincetown School Board elected to merge with the Nauset Regional School District beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year. Students from Provincetown now attend Nauset Regional High School after the closing of Provincetown High School in 2013.

Recently, the Nauset School Committee voted to get rid of the Native American logo representing the "Warrior" but will keep the name "Warrior" as the official mascot. The original mascot depicted a Native American man viewed from the side with Black & Gold war paint on his face, and a feather head-dress on his head, very similar to the Washington Redskins Native American logo. The logo for the school is now a block "N" with one half of the "N" painted Black, and the other half painted Gold.
