Agawam High School has a great learning environment, staff, and excellent sports! Additionally, the food options at lunch are great and there is a wide variety.
Overall most of the teachers are great and gave me a better appreciation for all my classes, the administration however is much weaker. Some administrators act in a very sexist way as for example a girl was showing a centimeter of her skin and got dress coded, but a boy took his shirt off in the hallway and nothing was said. Another example of poor administrators was a boy was crying on the bathroom floor and his friend came to console him and shortly after, administrators approached both boys and searched them and their bags just because he was crying.
I believe this school was decent, not the best but not the worst either. From an academic standpoint it was pretty great and it has some strong teachers, but some were not so strong. The biggest concern is how outdated and dingy the school is internally, although the recently updated outdoor facilities are nice. The student body is fairly diverse and they accommodate many different types of people with a variety of backgrounds. Overall, good education but lacking the modern school environment.

This school offered a variety of special interests such as music, robotics, athletics, and government while also teaching the important core subjects to students of various learning levels.
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.
Agawam High was a great place to go to high school. Teachers were very knowledgeable. Staff was nice and always around to listen and help. School is in a nice and safe area.
I had a great experience at the school and in the future I would like to see more equipment and funding for science courses.
The staff members were great, I can recall only 1 time where the teachers didn't help as much as they could have, but more and more teachers that are working there are younger, and can relate to the students more, and that usually creates fun classroom environments.
The only thing that I didn't like about the school was the other students.
The teachers that I had were invested in students even outside of class. They really cared about how the students were doing and are all kind.
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.
I transferred from a Catholic school. It was an adjustment since I only had 50 kids in my class previously and now there are over 300. Overall a good experience.
It’s an overall a good school. I just transferred here this year and my year so far is good. There is a a large selection of classes and activities to do, which is very nice. Most teachers are pretty dilegent and the administrators do their work well.
I like how it is only one floor so there are very little stairs. The football stadium is amazing. I like the electives that we have. I don't like some of the teachers, the parking lots, the food, and most of the students. I wish they offered a cooking class or more classes that helped prepare students for the real world.
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 provides a generally well rounded educational experience to its students and offers an abundance of student-centered clubs and extra curriculars. This school also provides its attendees with multiple opportunities for leadership and student-to-student cooperation through organizations such as Peer Tutoring, the Gender Sexuality Alliance, and Student Government. While facilities and materials provided by the school may be outdated, Agawam High allows students numerous outlets to experience major modern cities and higher status exhibitions.
Agawam High was small enough that you were given adequate attention from the teachers but big enough that there were groups to fit all personalities. There were plenty of activities, groups, clubs and sports to accommodate all interests.
Teachers are very demanding and many are rude. The school runs on athletics and pushes arts and technology "to the back burner", yet studies show arts and technology are better for us then sports. The roof leaks in multiple classrooms and the cafeteria. The air system blows hot air in the summer and cold air in the winter. The clubs are good and there are a lot too. Overall its a interesting and not very diverses 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 only problem I've had is the bathrooms. Love the teachers, sports, clubs, and administration. The environment is overall welcoming and accepting and you can always find people who go along with what you're interested in.
It was a very good school, the teachers are great. If I had to pick a negative I'd say it'd have to be the school lunches.
