    "Decatur High School is a great place for learning. The staff and administration are dedicated to their students success and push them to be involved in the classroom and extracurricular activities. Most of my teachers prepared me for the classes I would be taking the next year. If I could change something about Decatur it would be that they offered more dual enrollment classes on campus. There are dual enrollment classes that are offered now but they are at the community college, and since the school is on block schedule it is difficult for students to find 2 free blocks to travel."

    "To be honest, there isn't anything not to love about DHS. I have been there since 9th grade and everyone in the entire city holds Decatur High with the most prestige. The only thing it really lacks on is the school food is really just kind of tasteless and could be better. Other than that, everything is just fine"

    "The thing I love most at Decatur High with out a doubt is the Developmental wing! They are my absolute favorites ! I also admire the culinary department, the teachers are so sweet and actually care for their students and their needs, they do things like fundraisers to help the people who do not have as much money pay for their dues. If i could change something from school it would be the school food as well as some traditions, some things are parts of the school and I totally understand but some of these traditions offer better to certain people than others."

    "Some of my favorite experiences so far at Decatur High include my involvement in the clubs of FCCLA and HOSA. Other experiences would include the pep rallies and football games. This school is unique because every student has involved and helped in something even if they do not know. I would choose Decatur High School if I had to do it all over again because I can choose a different pathway for my journey through high school."

    "The teachers at Decatur High School exceed the expectations for a regular teacher. They teach a variety of ways including lectures, PowerPoints, instructional videos, and foldables. The knowledge of the them comes from the top of their head, or even from past lessons in college. If a teacher is not known of a certain topic, they are sure to ask a another staff member or student, sometimes even asking Google. Their interest in students is always in undivided attention so that they can understand and try to relate to the students. The communication skills of the teachers at Decatur High, are very unique in ways of verbal and written responses. They are sure to answer your every question. Their consistency in grading is a logical way to help everyone. If a student is failing, the teacher will find a way to help that student and many others. This is how the teachers at Decatur High School exceed the expectations of a regular tea her."
