Message from the Principal
Dear Decatur Family,
We are so proud of the fact that Stephen Decatur School is building a strong tradition of success for students, as reflected in its ability to make Adequate Yearly Progress for 5 consecutive years. Our students’ academic achievement with our school’s strong academic program provides every one of our students with the knowledge and skills essential for their success, and supports their development as lifelong learners. Although we enjoy an excellent reputation within the local community and beyond, we are always striving for improvement in order to best serve our students, academically, socially and emotionally.
We are a neighborhood school that realizes that building strong relationships between the school and the community is essential to our students’ success. We, at Decatur School, cherish our diverse community where all of its members are valued. We offer an exciting, educational program within a caring and supportive environment. We truly believe that all children can learn and use inclusive practices to ensure that our students reach their fullest potential.
We welcome parental involvement and encourage our parents to become active members of our wonderful Home and School Association. We are looking forward to many successful events this year. The bond that is forged between the home and the school working together is priceless and helps our students to thrive in all areas of school life. The Decatur Staff is dedicated to helping students become happy, healthy productive citizens in the community. To that end, we welcome our parents with open arms and encourage them to get involved in this endeavor.
Thank you for visiting our website. We are looking forward to an outstanding school year. With the help and support of all stakeholders, we are hoping that this will be Decatur School’s best year yet.
Ms. Genevieve E. Endy-O’Kane
