AS a guad of SHS school system, I think the system is great. My children also graduated from SHS. Now my grendchildren attend Speedway Junior High and Speedway High. The teachers are great and the test scores pure that. The school system is why I moved back to Speedway, Indiana. I give 5 stars to the school system.

As an alumnus of Speedway schools and a grandparent of a current student, I can unequivocally state that the quality of education received in the Speedway school system is at least equal to some of the most prestigous private schools in this area. As a public school the test scores rival those of areas of much higher socioeconomic levels. Comments regarding the emphasis on athletics probably have some basis, but that is a situation that will be found in any school system. Administratively, the school system is operating in a fiscally prudent manner. Funding is utilized for students, not unnecessary administrators and opulent buildings.

Im a student and not a teacher and the academic level of the kids at this high school is amazing. They are full of knowledge and like to get in thier and get dirty with all that homework the teachers dish out. Its a good school with a bunch of stats that show its a good school. That Laura girl is not a representation of Speedway High School. I dont know what grade she is in, but as a Senior this year I know that she doesn't represent us. Our sports our amazing. Weve been very close to winning state in football the past 3 years and that is amazing in its own. The basketball team is representing itself all on its own with a state title in 2002. We are a great school and have awesome teachers. We have scores on our ISTEP and GQE that show that fact. Thanks.

Hey I'm a student at SHS. Thie school is good academically. BUt the school focuses on the athletic department a little to much. The school has little funding for music department. Their are very few field trips due to no bus system. The teachers are very unique. One thing that is a factor to me is the school's math department. Out of the 4 teachers employed there are only 2 very good ones.

As the father of 3 boys that have gone K thru 12 and one current student, I can say we have an excellent school system. Test scores compare with private schools though out the state, graduation and college attendence well above state adverage. Sports programs very good, state titles baseball, basketball, and close football. Principals in JH and HS excellent. Grade schools super. Superintendent of schools has keep spending under control, property taxes low!!No busing to waste time and money. Get to know teachers on first name basis.
