    "Two different results for our family because kids learn differently. The first, not fond of the school - but was a kid that likes to work hard - and is now in a top tier University. Second, needed more freedom, disliked the school and EVERYTHING suffered - transferred and within two weeks did a 180 in all facets of life. My believe it is a one size fits all school, if your kid fits - great, if not a grinder for work - not much attention, help and no compassion. Do not hesitate to pull your kid when the GPA starts to matter. One last note, despite the opinion of the school that college admissions is aware of the THEIR caliber of student - in my opinion is drinking from your own kool aid. Spoke to admissions at top tier schools out of state - "GPA is KING, congrats on the great ACT score but why a GPA of only a 3.5 - we received 45,000 applicants and not familiar with your school." To be clear - great school for the right kid - my advice, competitive world, your kid can study like a rock star - that does not get them into the right college. Yes, they may need to learn those skills when they get in - but is that not what most of had to learn at that point as well."

    "Oh, I got your standard, the so called "Student growth rating" so a school with average 95-100 in 2012 will never get a 10/10 rating by greatschools.org because you can not improve from that score anymore, so you will always get 5/10 on that criteria. But a school with a 70 get to 72 will get a 10/10 on "Student growth rating". Anyone in their correct mind will think a school with an average score of 70 should be rated 10/10 but a school with average 95 should be rated 8/10? This is BEST standard someone came up with that I ever see in my entire life"

    "Unmatched academics! If you are lucky enough to get drawn in the lottery (7th grade, as other grades are almost always full) you are blessed enough to have gotten into the best program in the area. Their remedial rate is 2% (state average is almost 40%) and their ACT scores are the best in the state year after year (average 27). Do they teach to the test? NO, they just have a rigorous program and expectations are high. The teachers, administration, parents and kids are on the same page and that is really the key to success. It's not for everyone, as the academic standards are high and your child either needs to be motivated or positively influenced by his/her peers being motivated. The homework expectations are high, but manageable, especially since they give a 7th hour study period daily to keep up. As far as the growth rate, their scores are really high, so you aren't going to see as high of a TCAP growth when they already have kids either proficient or above proficient. Their scores are amazing, even though they never do test prep or change their curriculum to do well on the test, as most schools in the area do."

    "D'Evelyn is a fantastic school for our daughter. The staff are wonderful and truly care about the education of their students. Yes, they do expect a lot from students. Our daughter works hard in her work, but has also taken advantage of the many activities the school has to offer. We are also very pleased with the administration team as well this year. Mr. Edwards has done a lot to make D'Evelyn a more welcoming environment and a safer place for students. As our daughter ends her 10th grade year, we are looking forward to two more years and she is excited to have Mr. McKellips for Physics, we hear he is also an outstanding teacher. It is a lottery school and we still feel lucky to have gotten called."

    "Love this school. Teachers are very caring and involved with kids, solid administration, and outstand curriculum. Rich extracurricular activities across both sports and the arts are available, and it's not unusual to see the star athlete singing with the choir. Ample opportunity for parent involvement across a number of committees."
