2014 Vex Robotics City Champions!!!
Last weekend the Speedway robotics team of 6078s (Conner Vickers, Mike Cinkoske, Will Jackman, Jenna Childress, and Deborah Winneran) competed in the 2014 Indianaplis Vex Robotics Tournament. After two days of intense competition, team 6078s was crowned overall excellence award champions. This award is given to the best all-around team in both the competition rounds and in judges award. This award is higher in stature than the alliance award won two years ago. Like the alliance award this win automatically qualifies team 6078s for the world championship, as well as a 10,000 dollar scholarship (per year) to any member of team 6078s who attends Rose Hulman.

Speedway Schools receive "A" from IDOE
The Indiana Department of Education has released its annual evaluation of student achievement under the letter grade system and all Speedway Schools have received the letter grade “A” and are labeled as Exemplary. This recognition was based primarily upon the statewide achievement testing, attendance, and federal rankings. Speedway students, with the support of their teachers, families, and the community, produced exemplary results. Current students should feel encouraged to know that they have continued the standards of excellence which have been established and sustained in the Town of Speedway over several generations. It is the position of the school corporation that such recognition should be owned by the entire community as it is through extensive civic support (SPT, Lions’ Club, Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis, Boosters, etc.) and volunteer programs (organized tutoring through Speedway Baptist Church, mentoring, etc.) that our students receive the support necessary to succeed.
The School Town of Speedway is located on the west side of Indianapolis in the town of Speedway. We are an urban school district on the fringe of a large city located in Marion County. The school corporation consists of four elementary schools (grades K-6), one junior high school (grades 7-8), and one high school (grades 9-12). This year's enrollment is approximately 1700 students.

IT IS THE MISSION OF SPEEDWAY SCHOOLS TO INSPIRE AND PREPARE STUDENTS TO EMBRACE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF TODAY AND THE POSSIBILITIES OF TOMORROW.
