About Us
Academic Brief

Devonshire is a Project Adventure School. Our school themes include challenge, risk, trust, cooperation, and problem solving. Students in grades K-5 are involved in “hands-on” types of activities in the classroom, the gymnasium, as well as field trips throughout our community. Our unique school program includes climbing walls in the gym and participation in ground level initiatives and high ropes courses at Summit Vision's Outdoor Adventure Center. Our focus is to teach students “how” to think, not “what” to think. Our school has earned a state ranking of Continuous Improvement.
