    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 Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for Science, and Washington State GLE's for Social Studies. In grades 4 and 5 teachers specialize in a subject area and 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 Visual Arts and Physical Education as part of the core curriculum. Students in 1st and 2nd Grade work with the STYLE program for music instruction. Students in 3rd grade work closely with a Garden Teacher in our school garden. Students in 4th and 5th grade also have access to Instrumental Music classes.
