I'm surprised by some of the reviews, I think 5 to 10 years ago there were problems at Deerpark and the wealthier students/families called it "ghetto", but it has really become a family in the last few years under Sonya Hayes' leadership. It was recently named a Texas and a National Middle School to Watch because of the great things the teachers and staff are doing. It is very diverse; socially, ethnically, and economically so there are challenges that some of the wealthier, more homogeneous schools in RRISD don't face, but Deerpark has great students, great staff, and a great principal - and when you look at which middle school the Valedictorians and Salutatorians at McNeil HS have attended, the vast majority over the last decade have been Deerpark students. The students get a great education, both from the books & the great technology learning that is going on, but also from the real world experience & exposure to so many other students of different backgrounds. It is a wonderful school that is still plagued by a decades old reputation. And as one of the other parents said, it gets better every year!! My third and fourth kids are at Deerpark right now and they love it.

Deerpark has done an excellent job in preparing my child for high school. The teachers are awesome and the principals and counselors care about the kids. It has been a good experience for our family.

Hello, I'm a student at Deerpark Middle School (8th grade) and I would like to defend our school against the comments made against it. Our school has been called ghetto many times before, and this statement is downright false. Look at our TAKS scores- we scored higher than Canyon Vista on Science TAKS. Our school may be of mixed races, but that does not mean that we are 'ghetto.' I'm currently taking Leadership, a great class offered to eighth graders, and it has really opened my eyes up to how amazing our school really is. The teachers are great, caring people who prepare us for high school. We have nationally ranked teachers who portray the material in a very distinctive way. Say what you want about this school, but we are a very great community with great classes offered and fantastic teachers who care about each and every student.

Over the past 2.5 years, we have had trouble with the Staff vs students in whole. Some students are picked out and then comntinued to be prejudged. We have had children at Deerpark Middle school over the past years. But now we have a child who does not want to be at deerpark, due to false and continued threats by staff. The school has lost it's love , caring and motto's to which it says and hangs in the school. I recommend you which your child out to another school. Ps There are many good teachers at Deerpark that this hurts.

My daughter has had a lot of problems at this school. She calls it a ghetto school. Academically it seems fine but the social scene for the kids does not seem to be a positive one.

This is a wonderful school that constantly provides a positive learning environment for the children. My 6th grade child looks forward to her band class each day and always has great things to say about her teachers.

I was worried/anxious when my daughter made the transition into middle school. Fortunately, I've been very happy with Deerpark thus far. RRISD in general is the best in the Austin area in my opinion. The staff and teachers are well organized. Communication between parents and teachers is fairly easy. They offer a homework hotline for students to call. The curriculum challenges the students to learn, etc. Although I do not like where I live - I am going to stay so that I may keep my child in the RRISD - specifically Deerpark!

Deerpark is a really good school. We have had a pretty positive experience these past 2 years, great educators and teachers. The quality and attitude of some students do have me concerned, but overall Deerpark has been a good school.

Deerpark Middle School is an excellent school, with fantastic, dedicated administrators and quality teachers. Our school is a very interesting ethnic mix (that the limited categories in the 'ethnicity' profile do not adequately explain). I am happy that my child attends such a diverse, alive school! I was very fearful of middle school, but now that I have an 8th grader - it has been a very positive experience.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
