i have been attending Depew High School since kindergarten, and i would not want to be anywhere else! I believe the education given to us by our teachers is amazing and they put so much time and effort to help us grow. Our athletic programs have helped me survive all the tough times. I participate in sports such as volleyball and cheer. Our coaches put their heart into helping us get better at what we love. We may not always win when it comes to sports, but we sure give it our all. My favorite part of the year would be spirit week. Depew has had the biggest rival in all of WNY against Lancaster for 50 years. The big football game and assembly is something i am so proud to be apart of. Since we are not a huge school, most teachers and students will know each other or be acquainted some how, which makes us all a closer family. I am a Junior now and have 2 more years to complete, but my experience so far has been something i would not change and will remember as the years pass.

Depew High School has a lot of amenities and good teachers. The students however struggle to mature which can cause a difficult learning environment. The schools willingness to adapt to changing learning environments however should be commended, also the possibilities for students to prosper are in place but difficult for most to achieve. In total Depew High School benefits from amazing resources and teachers, yet struggles with it’s learning environment, average student maturity, and ability for all to prosper. In the future I hope Depew High School can fix it’s learning environment, as that change could improve the entire school immensely.
This high school gives great opportunities for students to grow. The teachers are very helpful and not only prepare students for college academically, but also teach life skills and help build successful character. The teachers strive to help each student find success within themselves. The opportunities to excel at Depew High school are abundant.
