Open Quote Decatur is the best school in the nation, in my opinion. I'm a sixth grade new student attending this glorious school!!! When I first walked in the doors I knew I was going to be welcomed right away, and I was. The best parts about Decatur is the special hospitality that you wouldn't always get at other schools and the academics!!! I came to Decatur searching for a challenge and they sure gave it to me. I'm so astonished by the awesome Social Studies curriculum here. Now Social Studies is my favorite subject next to Language Arts. Another good thing is that the activities are fun and challenging and not boring and simple! Everyone at Decatur has awesome personalities!!! Parents, you will not regret letting your child enter this miraculous school!!!!! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
