Vast majority of teachers go to great lengths to help students understand subject matter. The district’s STEM school which is shared by multiple high schools, Worcester Technical HS, is phenomenal! I would give them 5 stars across the board.

Stephen Decatur High School shares a strong spirit of perseverance and positivity, which is expressed through its teachers and staff everyday. Personal experiences at the school has shown its overall attitude in care for the students. Many students like myself, have exceeded expectations of pre developed standards and have learned lessons that will benefit the upcoming futures of college and a variety of other ventures. Stephen Decatur High School instills confidence within the student body, making it nearly impossible to not want to succeed in such a way. Although the school is grand in size, it would benefit students if there was more one on one time with those who need help in their studies. However, helping one another is what Stephen Decatur High School is all about. Yet, the characteristic has benefited all of the staff and students, making this school a place to never forget.
Love Stephen Decatur High School. Have had such an amazing high school experience. AMAZING teachers and staff, awesome clubs and sports, very clean and organized, and so many more great things about it!
