Here’s what SafeWise had to say about our Decatur:

Decatur has its own independent school system with a set of 200 quality teachers, over 70 percent of whom have advanced degrees, and consistently strong test scores among its students. Decatur also keeps its events calendar packed with activities for residents of all ages, including such programming as aerobic seniors, aerobic dance, ageless grace, yoga, and needlework, to name a few. For more ways to keep busy, the city offers numerous volunteering opportunities to support the local community, including neighborhood cleanup campaigns, advocacy for the elderly and disabled, and more. No matter what stage your family or life might be in, Decatur can be a great place to call home.
