Duluth Edison Charter Schools (DECS) is a public charter school located in Duluth, Minnesota. As a public charter school, we serve students from Kindergarten through Grade 8 free of charge.
Our mission is academic and personal excellence for every student. We are a PBIS (Positive Behavior and Intervention Systems) school focused on the core values of respect, responsibility, compassion, justice, courage, integrity, wisdom and hope.
In addition to quality offerings in math, language arts, science and social studies, we offer an array of specialists subjects. Visual arts, physical education, outdoor science, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and music), Spanish, and music are offered in some combination to all of our students on an every other day basis. Students in grades 5-8 have three music choices — band, choir and music appreciation. With these offerings, possible because we have a longer school day, we are truly seeking to address the whole child.
We encourage you to take some time to further explore our website and learn more about us.
