  • our school system is one of the best I have ever been in. I am raising 3 grand children and would never move any of them back to Decatur Public Schools. My 4 brothers and 3 sisters attended and graduated from Decatur public schools and I think if we had attended Meridian public schools we would of had a better learning experience.
