I moved here from Florida last year and my daughter has been attending Devon Forest since August of 2013. We love this school! The teachers and all other staff are great with communication. The school is very clean and organized, and the implemented systems seem to work very well for the kids. My husband and I have visited during school hours on numerous occasions and we are always impressed. My daughter is in second grade and loves the school as well. Her high test scores were overlooked in Florida and she was given the same amount and level of work as all other kids, while here she is challenged accordingly. She is now reading at a 5th grade level and writing at a 4th grade level, and has been at a 3rd grade level in math since December 2013. I believe this is due to the fact that the school takes academics seriously and they make sure that each child is challenged at their appropriate level.

My daughter came to Devon Forest from another school in Maryland. Her school district was one of the top ten in the nation. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I've been very pleased! The children are taught the same (if not more) than her school back in Maryland. The leadership seem very dedicated to the children! There was even a program for moms to build positive strategies for correcting their children. There were even arts and crafts for the childcare they provided, and dinner provided at no cost to the families that wanted to participate. Not every school would spend their money that way. With teachers, as with every school, it's a hit or miss...it depends on who you get, and how your child connects with that person. It also depends on parental involvement...

The teachers with the exception of one teacher are some of the best I have ever come across. The teachers genuinely care about the kids and they work hard to make sure the kids know what they need from one grade to the next. They are also very aware of the effects of cliques within the classroom and work hard to disempower those groups so that all of the kids have a better experience in the classroom without the bullying and drama. They are also much more aware of what true hyperactivity is and do not use that as a tool to explain away their failure. They are also very approachable for the parents. The only downside to the school is the way the budgeting is handled. The cafeteria really needs to provide better balanced lunches. It is better to pack your child's lunch.

Devon Forest Elementary is a wonderful school. My son started his first year of kindergarten there and we both couldnt be happier with his teachers and the staff. My son has always been at the same school as me (a daycare worker) so naturally I had some hesitations about being away from him but the staff at DFE made the transition smooth and comfortable for the both of us. They encourage and embrace parent involvement and I am proud to say that my son attends this school.

Our child has been attending Devon Forest since Kindergarten. He is now in third grade. The teachers are excellent and the principal and staff do a wonderful job. Parents feel very welcome in the school. The new 'all day gifted' program makes it the best school in our eyes!
