DeVeaux is a great school with lots of potential. I can't say enough great things about the staff and the TPS school district is on it's way to becoming something much more than it's been in decades. Dr. Durant and Principal Henderly are doing great things for our kids. The district lacks extracurricular activities and much of the arts but you can only blame the tax payers for that. Keep up the good work DeVeaux!
DeVeaux Elementary is a great school. Staff and principal are great. Not to many students go there. PTN does a wonderful job with planning events. Secretary is wonderful. Like most schools you do sometime run across issues. Some students want to learn some do not.
Deveaux was converted from a middle school to K-8 in 2010. They also have a brand new building as of 2009 (I think). Having a neighborhood K-8 school there is much better than when it was a middle school busing kids in from all over. My children, one of whom has an IEP, have been successful there, we have been happy with all the Teachers and the Principal is great.
i hate that school is it awful there you have to wear uniform there you can express yourselves there i went there for 6th grade and now i`m begging my mom to leave there there were fights everyday there was a chair throwing in lunch and a girl throw a chair at me because i ask her to stop playing with her watch and my teacher just yell at me i didn't do thing wrong
well, first off to all the people that say deveaux is a bad school. - it is very good. and well educated. -only the students that so chose to make bad desicions do, - dont blame the teachers for the students mistakes. - if you havent been to deveaux dont claim it as bad or tell other people about it. DEVEAUX IS THE MOST FUNNEST SCHOOL AND WELL EDUCATED SCHOOL I HAVE EVER WENT TO IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I WOULDNT TRADE IT WITH ANOTHER SCHOOL FOR ANYTHING. there are not alot of fights there. but there still are fights. they usally only last about a minute or so. dont comment this and say bad things about deveaux because it isnt a bad school. it is wayyyyyyyyyyyy more organized than any other school. tell me what other school has clusters that divides up the school neitherr. signed- tanasia ( a student
