Welcome to Decatur Central High School

Home of the HAWKS!



Excellence in education

Students, staff, parents and community are empowered to achieve excellence

To promote continuous personal growth for all, the MSD of Decatur Township is committed to being learner centered. Learning occurs in a safe, respectful and caring environment with high expectations for everyone. To meet the academic, social, emotional, physical, and developmental needs of all learners, we are committed to building relationships that foster collaboration and empowerment.

Achieved through learning and relationships


Decatur Central will host Small Learning Community (SLC) Open House events for Middle School families:

December 4 from 6-8 p.m.

This is a great opportunity for Middle School students and families to learn about each SLC in order to make an informed decision regarding which SLC to apply.  DCHS is excited to meet the new, Freshman class.  Go Hawks! 

The Choice Academy, in partnership with Green Wave Computer Recycling of Indianapolis, will hold an electronics drive on December 4 from 6-8pm, in conjunction with the Open House event!  Drop off your old electronics at the front entrance, door #1.  We thank you for helping us share our focus of environmental responsibility!  (We are also collecting used phone books for recycling as well!) Click here to see a list of accepted electronics!
