Message from Director

Greetings! My name is Adam Love, and I am the Director for the Imagine Small Learning Community at Decatur Middle School.  I bring a background of over 15 years experience in 4 different school districts throughout Central Indiana.  As a father myself, I know how important education is for our children.  I am DecaturProud to be serving you and our community in Decatur Township as a member of the team at DMS.

Our goal in Imagine is to simply do what is best for kids by supporting the whole student. We strive every day to assist our students in demonstrating our DMS Hawk P.R.I.D.E.  (Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence). The Imagine community, as well as all small learning communities, provides our students with a “home base”. Students meet daily in S.T.A.R. (Students, Teachers, And Relationships) classes to develop a strong relationship with an adult at DMS.  We believe our STAR class aids students in their development both socially and emotionally at this critical time in a child’s life. 


Middle School is also a time of increased academic development and focus for children.  At Decatur Middle School, we are excited to offer our students a quality education no matter the SLC they are in. Curriculum, throughout the entire building, is aligned to best support students academically as they transition to Decatur Central High School.  Instruction in Imagine is provided both with and for students through a combination of hands on experiences, project learning, and individualized approaches.  We know that students progress at different rates, and we work to ensure that each child achieves his or her personal best.  

Together, parents and teachers form the strongest team that can support students on their developmental journey through middle school.  I look forward to working with you as a member of the Imagine family at DMS and sincerely thank you for your partnership and support.
