Welcome to the Hadley Public School District
What is sometimes called a
tongue of flame
or an arm extended burning
is only the long
red and orange branch of
a green maple

MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT ANNIE MCKENZIE
A study from the personal finance network NerdWallet ranked the Hadley School District number 13 in its “Best School Districts for Your Buck in Massachusetts” list. NerdWallet crunched census and state
education data to identify high quality schools in affordable communities - and out of 266 school districts – Hadley ranked in the top 25.~ The rankings took into account cost of living, standardized test scores (SATs and MCAS), class size, college readiness and graduation rates, among other factors.~ Hadley and Hampden-Wilbraham are the only two school districts from western Massachusetts to make the list.
