Decoto School for Independent Study Reviews

2 reviews
I came to this school as an incoming Junior in high school. I was a bit nervous at first but from the start, the principal and other staff kindly and happily greeted my mom and I during the interview process when I was applying to be a student here. The counselor here was very kind and informative. Every time she'd see me and other students on campus, she would pass out flyers with important information such as scholarship opportunities and job fairs. Everyone showed true interest in the students academics and welfare. Overall, I felt like this school was composed with the best staff I have ever encountered and they truly helped me better my high school experience as well as my overall academics.
