South Hadley High School Reviews

The teachers and staff are committed to each student's success. Accommodations are made for struggling students and their anti-bullying policy is effective. The friendships I have made here are the types that will last a lifetime. The education I have gotten at South Hadley High School has provided me with a solid foundation to not only get accepted to college, but successfully complete my 4-year degree.

The one thing I would like to see my high school implement is a way for students to evaluate teachers and give them feedback on their teaching methods - what works and what does not work.

Thank you for considering me for this scholarship.

South Hadley High School is a small student body compared to nearby school districts. The staff takes an interest in all students and encourages students to work to their fullest potential. In action to excellent academics, the high school offers many extracurricular activities including sports teams, clubs and hobbies.
I like how you can create a very close bond with teachers, for example I had a couple teachers for 2-3 years of my high-school education. The staff is always there to help and encourage the students. If you speak up and ask for help they are always willing to help/ accommodate something.
