Welcome to the Hadley Public School District
O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.

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.
