Plymouth, New Hampshire. Surrounding towns that attend PRHS are Ashland, Holderness, Campton, Rumney, Wentworth, Warren, Ellsworth, Waterville Valley and Thornton.

Plymouth Regional was known as Plymouth Area High School until 1991. The school colors are blue and white.
The school is a part of the Pemi-Baker Regional School District, which houses Plymouth Regional High School and the Pemi-Baker Academy, an alternative school. Both schools are governed by a 13 member
school board, elected at large by the voters in the member communities and providing proportional representation for those communities in the financing and governing of the high school. The Pemi-Baker Regional School district belongs to SAU (School Administrative Unit) 48, which also oversees the elementary schools in Plymouth, Holderness, Rumney, Campton, Waterville Valley, Thornton and Wentworth. Warren and Ashland are not part of the same SAU.

There is also a chairman, a vice-chairman, a secretary, a treasurer, and two representatives to the school board elected exclusively by the student government. The student government's role includes running student functions and brainstorming school policy suggestions, which are usually passed along to the school board.
PRHS additionally has an extremely talented and competitive
dramaprogram. Sarah Bunkley runs this co-curricular program, which has been highly decorated with awards during her tenure.
