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.
I love Depew High School because we are a close community. Most of parents are all hard working, middle class families that are happy to be involved with school activities. One thing I would love to see a change in, is nutrition in the lunch room. Steps are being made to increase awareness with physical activity and healthier options to eat. I hope to see healthier, more appetizing food in the cafeteria.
