Learning in Decatur
They are local, state and national government officials, award winning musicians, Broadway performers and leaders of private enterprise worldwide. And they are all products of Decatur area schools.
Decatur’s primary and secondary educational institutions continue to provide world class educational opportunities for students from across the globe, mixing an emphasis on providing the basics with exposure to disciplines that rest on the cutting edge of educational opportunity. In the Decatur Public Schools new superintendent Gloria Davis has infused a new sense of focus on speaking with “One Voice” for district children while adding an emphasis on providing a more rigorous curriculum necessary to success in today’s society. Still a bevy of local private schools also provide opportunities for students in the community while our award-winning secondary institutions — Millikin University and Richland Community College — are a top choice for students, combining first rate education at a value unseen in other areas of the country.
