Decatur High School Reviews

Decatur High School is located in the small town of Decatur, Arkansas. It has a very low population rate and averages only about 40 to 50 students per grade. The majority of the students here have known their peers for almost all of their lives and are very close to each other. The teachers are very motivated to help the students be the best they can be. I have only been at Decatur for about 2 years, and my experience so far has been an amazing one. The faculty here are very motivating, and the students make you feel at home. One thing I would change is the income we have and where it goes. I wish that Decatur High School spent more money on programs for the school, instead of other unnecessary things.

Decatur High School is located in Decatur, Arkansas. When I first moved here in 2017, I thought that I would be an outcast knowing that I was a city girl that now lives in a small town filled with farms. But the moment I walked in the school doors, I was welcomed by hugs and smiles. When it comes to the environment of the school, I would give it a million stars if I was able to. But the reason why I give it a two star rating is because the academics can improve. Students are not challenged in their daily lives at school so how would they be able to step into the real world. They do not try and question why they are doing work. This is not how a school should be if we are wanting to change the future.
Our school does not listen to their student's concerns. For such a small school it should be able to at least acknowledged students' concerns. The people in charge think they know best though. There are many kids at my school that care deeply about their education, but our voices are not heard because our opinions are not asked for.
