Winchester High School is a comprehensive 9–12 high school located in Winchester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1850, it moved into its current location in the spring of 1972. Ranked 16th among Massachusetts High Schools,[3] close to 98% of students graduated in 2016, with about 96% of those continuing to higher education.[3]

A major three-phase reconstruction and expansion of the school started in 2014 and was completed in September 2017.[4] Most of the original school was rebuilt from the foundation, and the basement was to be decommissioned to address repeated flooding. The school remained in use during construction.[5]
