The six years I spent at D'Evelyn Jr/Sr High School were challenging and fulfilling. D'Evelyn prides itself on its extremely rigorous academics and its over achieving students. Positive points about the school include a strong drive by the teaching staff to instill a love of learning in the student body. We are encouraged and challenged at every turn. Students who return to say hello after their freshman year at college, report that the first year was easier than their last few years at D'Evelyn. Clearly the students are well prepared to enter higher education. Some shortcomings of the school is the strong emphasis on core curriculum and less emphasis on the arts, sports, and experiential learning. I loved my years at D'Evelyn and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to attend and graduate from such a wonderful school.
D'Evelyn High School is an excellent institution credited with being a "college prep school," and it surely lives up to its goals. The school in grounded on certain principles which focus the students on their academics such as no open campus or block schedule. The school is definitely more old-fashioned than others surrounding it, which can get old in this fast-paced world we live in today, but the education I have received is second to none that I have seen for a public school. Not to mention, we held the highest ACT scores in the state of Colorado for sixteen years until we switched to offering the SAT instead, still claiming the highest scores for public schools in the state with that test. The 1,000 person student body was small and while it lacked in diversity, it made up for it in fun people who had a witty way of enjoying themselves in between the laborious nightly workload. I am so thankful for my experience at D'Evelyn.
