About this school

At Stephen Decatur Elementary School, we understand the importance of preparing students to be college and career ready. Students and staff are dedicated to ‘Growth Mindset’. When we have a growth mindset, we understand that instead of saying we can’t do something, we say that we can’t do it YET! We are looking forward to a wonderful year of learning and persevering, and achieving the goals that we haven’t reached YET!
