I've moved recently to a school in Louisiana and swiftly coerced my mom into moving back to our home because I'd never really realized how swell Decatur's facilities are compared to others'. If nothing else, we have an extremely well-kept environment. I also enjoy the small town setting of Decatur because it allows everyone to be much heartier (teachers genuinely care about you and may even be friends with your parents, it's easier to make close bonds with great people).

This school is overall a good school. Over the years we have had our ups and downs but it has been good. Our academics have increased along with our athletics. I loved playing sports and going to school with friends and teachers that have supported me the entire time. I wish that our school would have been a little better academic wise, but overall it was a good experience.
Just as snowflakes, every teacher is different. This is true for the teachers at my school in that they use various techniques of teaching. Some work better than others, but overall my instructors are amazing because they seem to be very passionate and knowledgable about the subjects they teach.
