    Poor communication Teachers on power trips. Blame is shuffled from parent to "terrible teachers" at the Intermediate & Elem. levels. Would not recommend this school. Teachers encourage poor habits by demanding ill students complete missed work in the 10 min prior to start of day. Teahers are more concerned with the ease by which they perform their tasks than the students educational experience. Staff is dismissive unless it benefits them directly.

    The school is very dirty. There is way to much dust in the classrooms. There are rude teachers and rude cafeteria staff. My child has complained about the cafeteria staff numerous amounts of time. It seems as if no money is spent toward my children to better their education experience. I feel that the money towards schools is used for teacher faculty and staff's own good. Im disappointed in the local school sytems. This is very concerning to me and other parents knowing that my child isn't getting a satisfactory education. I hope you think about my concerns thank you for your time.

    Stephen Decatur Middle is an exellent school for my children. The teachers help the students achieve all of their goals easily by assisting them and just treating them like they are their own children.
