Principal's Corner

Welcome to the Decatur Township School for Excellence. We are the small high school option in Decatur Township. DTSE includes two small school choices that serve individual student’s needs.

Student Enrichment and Transition Pathway(STEP)-9th and 10th grade on track program.

Blending Learning Pathway(BLP)-11th and 12th grade credit recovery/advancement program.

At DTSE we take pride in the fact that we are truly committed to the responsibility, academic achievement, and personal growth of every student. We strive to ensure that each student makes significant progress towards his or her potential. Our excellent staff works daily to build relationships with students that are meaningful, fostering an environment where everyone feels included and welcomed. At DTSE we are family! I encourage our current families to engage with us along this journey and would invite others to come see what we have to offer. Our year is filled with events and opportunities to volunteer and provide support. Check us out on Twitter (@DTSExellence) and Like Us on Facebook to stay connected.

We strive to be a school community where our staff, students, and families are proud to belong. DTSE is a safe, secure, progressive institution where students can purse their interests. DTSE students have a voice and opportunities to explore potential college and career paths.

We hope that you will have a great school year, and want you to know that we are here to serve you. Feel free to contact us with your wants, needs, or if you would like to help support our programs. Thanks for being a Trailblazer!

Expect Excellence,

Mr.  Tim VanWanzeele
