I feel the staff are good for our students. They accommodate special needs and pay attention to the needs of the student. They put a strong emphasis on integrity and strive to help each student excel at what they do and look to the future to make their students better citizens.
As an alumnus of SHS, I'm pleased with the changes they've made in the last 20-something years. I've found the staff easy to work with and pleasant. Teachers are excellent and their technology emphasis will take our children into the future. They offer many more classes and you'll find many alumni that moved back when they started having children or children in school. It's a great community and our small schools guarantee personal attention to any student or parent that requires it.
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.
