South Decatur is an amazing school with crazy amounts of Cougar pride! I felt as though I belonged among the school with how connected we were. Although being a small school, South Decatur makes that up by insuring that everyone gets the proper education they deserve and need before they move forward in the next chapter of their lives. Moving on I would like to see South Decatur maintain its credibility and continue to offer the best education for future students just like it was offered for me!

I went to South Decatur all through elementary and high school. It was a small school, but I enjoyed every year I was there! I participated in Student Council, National Honor Society, Peer Helpers, Key Club, Golf, Softball, and a high school board member for Big Brothers Big Sisters. South Decatur gave me many memories and opportunities I will forever be grateful for. The relationships of my friends, faculty, and staff will forever be cherished. South Decatur is a friendly, well-educated, open place that I would highly recommend. Though my years there were few, I loved the opportunity for growth I was continually given. South Decatur was an important part of my education and I was very successful there, which is why I would recommend it to all.
I have been going to South Decatur through all of my education years, so I know the place pretty well! South Decatur is a small town school located in Westport, Indiana; and is surrounded by corn fields. The part I like most about South Decatur is that since the school is small, there is a family atmosphere. Everyone is always there to help you and everyone has the southern hospitality. There are great nursing and biomedical classes to take, which will really help prepare students for college; if they are interested in that career. The one thing I would like to see change about South Decatur is the athletics, every sport needs a coach that is willing to dedicate themselves to the school. South Decatur has more bad than good years with athletics. All around, I have enjoyed my time at South Decatur and I love my school!
