About Us

American Dreamer STEM Academy is a new K-8 school in Decatur Public Schools. We are formerly known as French Academy, but we moved to a new campus - the old Enterprise. As we moved, we are growing into a K-8 building. We currently do not have appropriate facilities to host home games, but we are hoping to have a new gym built in the next few years. Please see the Directions page to see where each sport will play its home games.
