Dracut High School

Dracut High School

Dracut Senior High School is the public senior high school in the Merrimack Valley town of Dracut, Massachusetts.

The high school's colors are Columbia blue, navy blue, silver and white. The team name is the Middies and the symbol is an anchor, except for in Football where the logo is a "Lightning Sword". These are references to midshipmen, as historically, the town was a place where U.S. Navy uniforms were created. Dracut High itself was built in the early 1950s and is frequently overcrowded, as roughly 1,600 students attend the school that was built for a fraction of that number, approximately 900. But recently the state has approved funding to build a new high school on the same lot.

Dracut High School is well known in the Merrimack Valley for their marching band and color guard, and also for their Show Choir, A Cappella Vocal Ensemble, the A Cappellicans (which performs at many inside and outdoor venues throughout the year) and general music department.The high school is also very well known for its Spring Musical that is performed each April. The Music Department has received numerous awards for their productions.

The school was the first in Massachusetts to ban iPods and other electronic devices during school hours. This set a precedent that has been followed by 14 other schools, including Acton-Boxboro, Cohasset, Gloucester, and Durfee. Dracut High School is surrounded by 3 other schools: the Lakeview Junior High School, George H. Englesby Intermediate School and Brookside Elementary School.
