South Hadley is a big clique. There is a clear division between athletics and band or theater students. There is still bullying. Parents can call the school asking for changes and changes are never made. Students pay for parking and the superintendent holds events and makes it so that all students may not have a parking spot and forces students to go home or park illegally and get a ticket. Administration does not make situations better, they make it worse. I was not challenged in my courses. Students are often roaming the halls or playing on their phones. Teachers are often not in school, or on long leaves which makes learning difficult.

This high school offers very rigorous classes. It also keeps a safe environment for all students and is very inclusive. The teachers are understanding, kind, and dedicated to their jobs.
It was a fun learning experience with great teachers. The teachers do a good job of connecting with the student and develop good relationships. The school is on the smaller end, but easy to navigate and get to class.
