Devonshire is a wonderful school! Their 'hands-on' approach really makes learning fun. I have 2 kids in the school and they both love it. The staff cares about the kids and even the parents are extremely involved. I'm so glad my kids had the opportunity to go to Devonshire!

With all the activities that this school has, the students are never bored. The students learn while they are having fun. ...  Read more
