I was surprised to see such a low rating for our school. However, now that I read the dates I can see why. They are very old. We have made many changes in staff, focus, and programing. Deming High School is an outstanding school with dedicated students and teachers!

Deming High School is run down and needs to be condemed. There is a proposed new school that was voted down by the retiremnet community. Hopefully there will be a revote, but don't hold your breath.

As a student of Deming High School I would have to say it is the worst school in the state of New Mexico.This school has no teacher leadership and horrible disapline.

I am amazingly disappointed with the performance of Deming schools, so much so I am looking to move to a new district. My eldest son graduated functionally illiterate without any indication from the school there was a problem. We have become very active in tracking our other two kids as a result of that and found teachers losing assignments regularly, office records inconsistent and out of date as well as no sense of accountability.

As a student that attends Deming High School, I would have to say that it is an ok school. Sometimes the teachers just don't seem to care if the students learn. If they learn they learn if they don't they don't. But not everyone is like that. As of Extracurricular activities they are great. We have very good sports teams. Parent involvement is very rare to see in Deming even in elementaries.

As a parent involved in this schoolI have worked with all school personnel and have found that they are very caring and are their for our children. I refer to one teacher that is on the top of the school list, their band director Mr. Chavez. Mr. Chavez is hard on his students but brings out the best in each student .He is the first one to be their for his students and his students are their for him. It is something to see kids letting their feelings show when they get ready to leave school for good. I saw that only a good teacher or friend or educator can bring this out on student 18 or 19 years old. as a parent that is involved in all the school s in our district I am pround to have my children attend Deming Public schools.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
