Ludlow High School is the public high school of Ludlow, Massachusetts, United States, located at 500 Chapin Street. It is next to Ludlow Town Hall. The high school is the only public high school in the town and services all of its residents. Ludlow high school normally scores close to the state average on standardized tests such as Massachusetts' MCAS and the SAT Reasoning Test.

Ludlow High School is well known for its sporting teams in soccer, cross country, track and field, and wrestling. The town's most popular sport traditionally is soccer thanks to Ludlow's large Portuguese-American population. The high school's soccer team has won 17 Massachusetts state championships, with the most recent one in 2011, when they beat the Masconomet High School Chieftains 2-1 in the championship game. Ludlow's talent for soccer has been particularly clear in recent years, as they have made four straight appearances in the Massachusetts state championship game, winning three of them (2008, 2010, and 2011). The high school and town's tradition of soccer excellence earned it a spot in the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 1996.[4]

The cross country team also has won multiple Western Massachusetts championships in recent years, most recently in 2009. The track and field team saw great success with a streak of meet wins stretching seven seasons from 2003-2009. The school's wrestling team won the Western Massachusetts championship every year 1998-2004 and the state championship in 2003. The school's main rivals in sports are Minnechaug Regional High School in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, and Palmer High School in Palmer, Massachusetts. The school plays Palmer in its annual Thanksgiving football game.

The school's newspaper, titled The Cub, is student run and comes out monthy, it is distributed throughout the community to keep the citizens of the community informed about events at the school. The newspaper was in final consideration for an appearance on the MTV reality show The Paper. MTV also came to Ludlow High for auditions of Made but they did not select a participant.
