I love this school! I moved to Newark three years ago and my children have gone to Speedway since. I have seen a tremendous difference since the new administration (Buckman, Boganey, and Monroe) has started here. My students are learning more, going on more field trips, and are generally happier. I'd recommend this school to anyone in Newark.

If you are a parent who cares about your child's education do not send your child to this school. The teachers and principal are focused on giving attitudes vs. teaching. Its doesn't seem like they are interested in making sure your child learn. To me it seemed like they were more interested in doing the basic of their jobs instead of putting their heart's into it. Its impossible for any child to learn since most of the children are disruptive and the teachers are clueless on how to correct the issue.

Their is a need of more parent involvement and better PTO leadership, overall this school has come a long way the children are working harder to improve their behavior and work abilities.

the school has great teachers, there needs to be a stronger principal in place. My daughter also recieves an excellent music and dance education which cant be found in most private schools.
