Recovery High Schools are public schools where students can earn a high school diploma while being supported in recovery from alcohol and drug use.

There are currently five recovery high schools in Massachusetts: in Beverly. Boston, Brockton, Springfield, and Worcester. These schools provide a supportive environment for young people in recovery from alcohol and drug use. These schools help the students maintain their recovery while also completing their education. The schools typically keep a student to teacher ratio of 7:1, and also have a longer day and school year in order to provide more extensive supports for the students. Students may start in the program at any time in the school year.
