South Hadley Public Schools has its flaws just as every school system does; however, for the most part, it is a great community with great opportunities for students. It allows chances for students to be involved in many ways and have one on one help with teachers because of how small the schools are. In terms of what the school is lacking is most definitely diversity.

My daughter has a good experience at SHHS, especially the AP courses at the highschool level. She has also enjoyed the arts at SHHS (drama, improve and chorus), they are well run. The variety of clubs is quite good also. Overall, her academic experience has been very good. Good enough to get her into Cornell University.
Overall, I have had a positive experience at South Hadley High School. The teachers have been very helpful and understanding, and my guidance counselor has been available to assist me with any issue that may arise. It is a small school with only approximately 130 students in my graduating class, so it has always felt like a close knit community.
