Review Agawam High School
I love the joyous and ever loyal school of Agawam High. It's located in a small town, where everyone pretty much knows everyone, and if your parents grew up here too, you're well known. We're huge on our sports, and the team pride is insane. The teachers are all really trustworthy, and there is always somebody to talk too. Academically, I say our school is pretty smart. AP and honor classes are encouraged, and once they're taken, someone is always there to help when you get stuck. The amount of diverse clubs we offer is wonderful, and it makes the school welcome for everyone. AHS isn't my high school, it's my second home.
The teachers at this school are great if you plan to do nothing in most classes. Most teachers at Agawam High don't give much work and some don't give any at all. You do the bare minimum in classes and you'll walk away with a decent grade. Biggest concern I had was teaching styles. Most teachers will not adjust teaching styles if information being provided is not understood by some students. Communication is weak between teachers and students. Guidance counselor's are very unhelpful which caused a lot of stress at the beginning of my senior year while trying to figure out college and what not. At Agawam High, teachers and students have a communication device we use to keep updated on most assignments, grades, and upcoming events. Most teachers are pretty good with the system, but some get lazy with updating grades.
