The teachers,the staff are Great!!! The one is not, is the Principal,Mrs.Vaughn.from several experiences, If any issue should come up her response is to just take it up to the district. She doesn't give a compassionate response. So you don't feel any support from her. We need a new principal or have Mr.Rodarte replace her.
The principal brushes you off by telling you take it to the district. Many schools recognize perfect attendance but when her kids were attending Decker and would miss days, perfect attendance didn't matter. Well it matters to a majority of parents who care that their child is present. Besides, the schools get paid for every day that the child is in school!!!
My child is on her 3rd year attending Decker and really enjoys going to school. I feel that each teacher she has had really goes out of there way. I give all the parent volunteers a high five. The children enjoy all the EXTRAS. Re: parties, ice cream, book fair & movie night) Thanks again Parents & Teachers!!!!!!!!!
I feel really welcome at my daughters school. She has been going there since kindergarten. Teachers are great and very trust worthy. From Office personnel as well as teachers ... all personnel very kind, friendly, helpful and always professional. Love Decker School
We came to Decker from Walnut School District about a year ago as a result of their budget cut. My three kids are in 2nd, 3rd and 5th. I fell in love with this school fist time I called in to inquire on enrollment deadlines. Eileen and Natalie are very courteous patient and knowledgeable, unlike staff at Walnut. My son is GATE at Walnut but all he received are extra homework and tests. Kids became test machines set to break CST records. Extensive budge cut with our old school results in furlough days. Teachers simply can't finish their curriculum on time. We are so happy here at Decker. My kids love their teachers and Mrs. Vaughan. She is a young principal with lots of visions for the kids. All 3 teachers I personally know are motivating. Education can be fun if you do it right. Decker is a do-it-right place!
My son attends this elementary school and loves it! he rides the bus and is in special Ed. His teacher is awesome and really cares for my pre-schooler. The school's campus is always neat and clean established in a nice decent neighborhood, and the secretaries are always kind. I recomend this school!
Mr. Parrales is a fantastic role model for his students. His wit, intellect, and life experiences he shares with his students is priceless! I wish ALL students at Decker had the chance to have him as a teacher as my children did. He was the reason they loved going to school everyday. Other teachers at this school are given all the hype, but he's the "real deal." I recommend him to anyone looking for a great teacher.
