I do enjoy attending this school, it’s big but not too big to get lost in. The teachers selected and hired are the best part of the school because they teach with passion and invigorate kids into their classes and make them passionate as well! The rules are a bit strict but also for good reason as they’ve tried being lenient in the past and it has worked and failed at the same time so they must take action which is understandable. I love this school as it’s a very homey and warm place and in the bottom of my heart I will always remember it.

I have three daughters that have all graduation from and spent their entire school experience up until then in the Speedway school district. Two of my girls have gone on to be accepted into IU Bloomington. One is now Alumni and the other is a Sophomore. Speedway was and still is an EXCELLENT school system. High values, no tolerance of violence or drug/ gang environment, community involved,caring and committed teachers/coaches/staff. You couldn't ask for better in my honest opinion.
Going through speedway high school has been a life changing experience for me. The level of kindness and care from teachers and administration is not of this earth. Speedway high school is filled with teachers who truly love their jobs and want the best for each of their students. Students are taught to critical think and analysis life problems. Even though I was there for just a year, It was an amazing experience
