Decatur community high school has taught me so many helpful things to get me through life. Everybody cares about everybody. Everybody knows everybody. You will not pass a face in the hall and not know their name. This school has taught me how to be personable and caring. The teachers are extraordinary. They know what they are teaching, and that’s what the kids deserve. It is a wonderful school that I would recommend to anyone.

I truly loved attending school at DCHS! The one on one relationships that can be carried with almost any teacher is a great opportunity we have here! The teachers truly care and the environment is safe.
I liked my football and wrestling coach. He gave me hope to always do my best. I did not like the teachers who bullied me and other students. I was a strong student athlete and was negatively affected by them. I still feel bad for the kids who were not as strong as myself. Many of my teachers did not want me to do well and thrived on me getting a bad grade. Besides my coach, the school counselor was always nice and genuine to students.
