Decatur Elementary School

Academics

Students at Decatur work on accelerated curriculum one to two grade levels above their same age peers. We align to Common Core State Standards in Math and English Language Arts (ELA), Next GenerationS cience Standards (NGSS) for Science, and Washington State GLE’s for Social Studies. In grades 4 and 5 teachers specialize in a subject are aand students rotate through the teachers for each subject. Most years we have teams where one teacher teaches ELA and Social Studies and the other Math and Science.

Decatur offers Physical Education as part of the core curriculum. Students in grades 1 through 3 work with the STYLE program for music instruction. Students in 4th and 5th grade also have access to Instrumental Music classes.
