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.

I like that the teachers always have that one on one time with students who could really use their help! It's a small community yet it's full of many opportunities.
Decatur is a small town located in Northwest Arkansas. What I've grown to like at Decatur is the staff. They're all polite and helpful. Decatur staff takes time out of their day to watch each and everyone of their students grow, even the students that feel like they have nothing left. They push you to become the best you can be and won't stop till you're there. I wouldn't change anything about Decatur.
