Great school if you only prioritize your child’s academic success. If you care about their emotional well being, their exposure to constant criticism or their lack of sleep then you should look elsewhere. This school will force your child to fit into a pre-determined mold, it will not permit freedom of expression or creativity - it also won’t permit IEP or 504 recommendations that attempt to level the playing field.
If you only care about grades - go for it! If you care about your child stay away.

If you are a hardworking student, love study and eager to go to college, D’Evelyn high School is definitely for you! The teachers are no nonsense and are very helpful. The school has closed campus, and safety is also the top priority at D’Evelyn. School counselors are always ready to help students. Not only in academics, but in many sports, music and arts, D’Evelyn students thrive with hardworking, positive attitudes, and fun. Most D’Evelyn parents are very supportive to the students and the school. There are many activities and clubs that students can participate and enjoy, and they are super good for easing the stress from rigorous academic programs.
I am very prepared for college and did well on the SAT! However, I really struggled with school till senior year as the rigor is insane. I had 3-6 hours of homework every night on top of extracurriculars. This made it hard to balence school and activities and my grades fell. Most of my teachers were very smart and passionate about their subjects. A lot of them really care! Some were difficult but the majority were great.
