Depew Union Free School District Reviews

My experience at Depew High School has been amazing. In my four years here I have immersed myself in all that I could. I got involved in everything from clubs to sports to activities that take place. Here at Depew there is always something going on rather it be a sports game to go and watch or a student run event. My teachers have done their best to make sure that I am getting the education that I need to succeed in life and I am thankful for all of their hard work and dedication that they have showed me. Depew is a small district where almost everyone knows everybody else and its nice to know that we are our own small community and family. I am appreciative for my time here and wouldn't change a thing about it. I will forever remember "Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat".

I love the school spirit carried through out the halls of Depew High school and the support teachers provide for the students is impeccable. However, I do not enjoy the cliquey atmosphere and the attitude charged students. Overall, Depew has taught me valuable life lessons and I have truly enjoyed my time spent in this district.
Depew is a small school district located in the suburbs of Baffalo N.Y. Being a small school you know everyone. We have smaller class sizes so extra help is very easy to get. Everyone usually makes at least one sport they choose to play. Our sports teams are always very competitive and win many titles.
