Ludlow is a small town in Western Massachusets. There are three elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and a Catholic school. I currently attend high school. I am graduating this year and I am all ready to move out to see more of the country and different opportunities that I personally feel living in Ludlow has not provided. This is a town where people never really leave high school after they graduate. However, Ludlow soccer growing up has been the reason I will be able to play at the college level.

Everybody knows everyone here, which can be good or bad. It's a very pretty small town. Has good events like the festa as well as pioneer's games. Cops here spend most of their time trying to pull people over, and the whole unit responds to every town incident, but are necessary due to the drugs flooding in. Many people here are very snobby, but there are a lot of great people as well. Amazing place to raise a family, despite the school system being a bit cliquey. Kids can walk from school to subway, mcdonalds, and big y in a safe neighborhood which is great. It's only 15 min away from Chicopee and Springfield, and the Holyoke Mall. Overall, I consider myself to have been raised in this town.
Ludlow is a rather quiet, family friendly, clean town! They have many parades for different holidays bringing the town together. The school systems are great, teachers are wonderful. Soccer is a huge deal in this area and sports are very important.
