    The Community

    Located on Cape Cod, the Town of Mashpee is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the Commonwealth.  Along with the Martha’s Vineyard Town of Aquinnah, it is also unique as one of the remaining homes of the Wampanoag Nation, the Native American tribe who met the Pilgrims at Plymouth. Although now outnumbered by new residents, the Wampanoag continue to play a significant role in defining the character of the community. With over five miles of sandy beaches on Nantucket and Vineyard Sounds, four of the largest freshwater ponds on Cape Cod and other visitor amenities such as the nationally recognized Mashpee Commons, Mashpee is considered a prime resort, seasonal home and retirement community.  Mashpee Middle/High School is a facility housing grades 7 - 12, with a current enrollment of 716 students.
