The boys' basketball program at New Bedford High School has long been one of the most successful in the state. Ed Rodrigues coached the varsity team for 27 years (1980–2007). During his tenure as head coach, the Whalers were one of the state's top-performing teams year after year and made numerous appearances in the state tournament, winning back-to-back Division 1 State titles in 1993 and 1994. His teams also won two additional Eastern Massachusetts Finals and two additional South Sectional titles. There were only two losing seasons in his career.[4] On February 21, 2007, Rodrigues coached his final game at New Bedford High School. The Whalers lost to the visiting St. Raphael Academy Saints of Pawtucket, Rhode Island 69-66. Rodrigues ended his tenure at the school with a career record of 435-157.[5] He continues to be a teacher at the school, is still heavily involved with the basketball program and the entire athletic department, and is currently an assistant men's basketball coach at UMass Dartmouth. In 2009, New Bedford High School's basketball court was officially dedicated in Rodrigues' name.[6]

Long-time boys' assistant/junior varsity coach Tom Tarpey took over as head coach at the start of the 2007-08 season.[7] In his first season, the Whalers went 11-9 in the regular season and made the state tournament. They lost in the first round of the Division I South Sectional on the road to the Framingham Flyers 69-62.[8] The following season (2008–09), the boys finished with a record of 8-12 and did not qualify for the tournament.[9] They also did not qualify in 2009-10 with a 7-13 record.[10] With the experience of the underclassmen, plus the brief addition of a highly touted prospect transferred from Division III State champions the Wareham Vikings, a huge turnaround occurred in the 2010-11 season. The Whalers returned to prominence and finished the regular season with a record of 16-3,[11] earning the 3rd seed in the Division I South Sectional tournament. They lost in the sectional semifinals to the Newton North Tigers 67-44.[12]

In the 2007-08 school year, the girls' basketball team captured the Division I South Sectional title by defeating the Sandwich High Blue Knights 65-62 at UMass Boston,[13] giving them the opportunity to compete in the Eastern Massachusetts Finals at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston; they lost to the Division I North champion Andover High Golden Warriors 66-34.[14] Head coach Mickey Gonsalves was named Division 1 Girls' Basketball Coach of the Year by the Boston Globe.[15] In the 2010-11 season, the Lady Whalers completed an undefeated regular season at 20-0 when they defeated the visiting Barnstable Red Raiders 63-44.[16] They earned the top seed in the Division I South Sectional tournament and won their second South Sectional title by defeating the Mansfield Hornets 47-46 at the now TD Garden.[17] The Lady Whalers lost in the Eastern Mass Finals to North Sectional champion Andover 54-46, also at the Garden.[18]

Fall River Public Schools

Fall River Public Schools (FRPS) is a school district headquartered in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Thanks to a long-term effort on the part of the city, the school system has been involved in a consolidation effort, bringing the total number of elementary schools down from twenty-eight as recently as the 1990s to nine today: Spencer Borden Elementary in the southern Highlands, John J. Doran Elementary in the downtown area, Mary L. Fonseca Elementary in the Flint, William S. Greene Elementary near the city's center, Alfred S. Letourneau in the Maplewood neighborhood, Frank M. Silvia Elementary in the far North End, James Tansey Elementary in the middle Highlands, Carlton M. Viveiros Elementary in the South End, and Samuel Watson Elementary in the lower Flint. Of the old twenty-eight, only Watson, Tansey and Doran remain in their original buildings; Silvia was relocated from its old location downtown to a new building in the northern part of the city, and the other five were rebuilt on the sites of their original schools. Also, most of the closed school names (except for Wiley and Dubuque) live on in the schools they were consolidated into. There are three middle schools: Matthew J. Kuss Middle School (which was relocated to the west side of the city), James Morton Middle School (serving the North End), and Edmond P. Talbot Middle School (serving the east side of the city). The site of the former Henry Lord Middle School now serves as an elementary and middle school named Henry Lord Community School.The city has one public high school, B.M.C. Durfee High School. The school was founded in 1886, replacing an older high school. The original grand school building was a gift of Mrs. Mary B. Young, in the name of Bradford Matthew Chaloner Durfee, her late son, whose name also graces a dormitory at Yale University. The current school building was opened in 1978, and it was recently announced that a replica of the Durfee Chimes, the original school's red-capped bell tower, will be recreated on the grounds.

Durfee's teams wear black and red (in honor of the old school's black roof and red observatory dome and tower spire), and are called the Hilltoppers, sometimes shortened to Toppers. The nickname dates back to the old school's perch on top of the hill north of the Quequechan River. The school is a member of the Big Three Conference, where it competes with Brockton High School and its longtime natural rival, New Bedford High School.
