Why Choose Decatur City Schools?

Decatur is an extremely child-focused community which is revealed very strongly in each of its schools. Parents are actively involved in the schools, joined by many of the businesses and industries located in the city. Perhaps what reveals the level of community involvement the most is the level at which Decatur City Schools is funded by the city – Decatur's spending per student is one of the highest in the state, and higher than many places in the nation.

Mission Statement
The Mission of Decatur City Schools is to provide an innovative learning community committed to academic excellence and meeting the unique needs of every individual.
