Agawam High school holds a great sense of pride and school spirit especially when it comes to the day of Pep Rally. The union of everyone together and the spirit and passion that pours out when we chant the school song altogether, and even competitively by grade, is a truly wonderful experience. Overall, I believe that the facilities are decent but not the greatest and the school lunch is pretty rough, although the salad lines are good!

Agawam High School is a slightly above average school, consisting of well-thought professors teaching in...not the best environments. They are by far very knowledgeable about their criteria and most of them do tend to reach out to their students in order to make them understand the content. Although the school climate itself among the students is average at best, seemingly very "clique-y" to say, as well as sort of high tensions. Excellent funding towards the departments, especially with the new field for the sports department, although leaves it sort of unbalanced for the performing and visual arts department. A very "white" school with little diversity.
Agawam High School is a school of spirit. Everyday you see kids repping the school sweatshirts and hoodies and people are proud to wear their uniforms. Overall the kids are kind and accepting and the teachers make it their goal to make students feel included and safe everyday. Although sometimes resources are limited and there are issues with facilities and building maintenance, Agawam High is a school where students can expand their knowledge and prepare for the future.
