Dean is a great public school. If you're child is placed on advanced classes he/she will enjoy it. The food ,teachers are great.
Honestly Dean is a good school is just that the students are hard headed. There's so much a teacher or an assistant principal can do when the students are abliviouse to the reason they are at school. What this school needs to do is be strickt take control of the matter u have the future in yalls hand please make it a good one.. n by the way I'm a m**** f****** student at this school :-D P.S yes they did have bad food for a while but you also have the choice to bring your own food, teach yalls children how to cook, so they won't depend on others...
I would not recommend this school at all. My when the school year started they did not have enough food for the students. The school cafeteria was under renovation, not a well planned summer project. Lots of student fights posted on face book. Student incidents not investigated, no cameras in classrooms or hallways. Incompetent APs
I am a student in Dean Middle School . our school is getting better , it's true that many students here don't care about grades and tardies but we also have outstanding students here ! we have okay teachers , i mean they are great in teaching but some are really mean , or talk alot , there is also alot of drama here . we have very fun groups and activities we have tutoring , and sports , our school is great and getting better .
Unfortunately the worse school cy-fair. Unresponsive leadership, no resolution to issues, AP were very unprofessional. Was advised there were cameras in the the halls, but when confronted the cameras are never turned on, same with the bus system. Replace the adminstration and I would think there would be a great improvement in this school.
Dean has been the worst school district I've had my children attend. The principle was very rude when trying to discuss a simple matter with me and continued talking over me and would not let me finish my sentences. I was not trying to argue but he turned everything into an arguement. Some kid hit my son in the face one day, they called me and said 'Would you like to press charges or would you like to do nothing..." When I showed up at the school no one had the time to see me to discuss the matter and I was completely ignored and ending up leaving an hour later without getting anything resolved. Later I received a call from a teacher to simply touch base on my child, but he could not answer ANY questions I had, including the incident of my son getting punched in the face. he did not even remember the incident even though it took place in HIS class and only took place a week and a half earlier. Also when my son started they did not have hot food in the cafeteria for at least two weeks. Terrible.
I attended this school and I personally didn't feel too safe while I was there. Yes the administration works very hard on discipline and such, but it really doesn't matter when the students make it such an uncomfortable environment to learn in. This school is in my opinion on the lower end of Cy-Fair ISD middle schools in terms of academics and discipline but you can't really help it when there's such a big influence with so many disrespectful students. If I were a parent, I would not allow my child to attend this school because I don't feel that it shows students what is expected of them in high school or in the real world.
I'm a student who goes here. It's an okay school. People will go around and say that we're a bad school, but we're really not. The teachers here are great and they try their best to fulfill our educational needs. There will be fights and stuff occasionally, but it's not frequent. The principal and assitant principals are really strict, behavior-wise. The school is mostly hispanics and african americans. Some of our sports include basketball, volleyball, football, cross country, track, and soccer. We also have a pool by the back gym. At our school, there's 2 types of classes. On-level and level 1. On-level if for students at a basic level and level 1 students are for students at a more advanced level. They have cameras in the hallways and around the school, but it seems like they don't really watch them. Some of the kids here don't really care about tardies and grades, so that's probably where we get the low scores. Ever since the incident that happened back in the early 2000's, we've had a police checking the school every monday morning for drugs and he stays throughout the day to monitor the school. All in all, the school is great. There's just rumors from haters.
well dean is a school for your child theres lots of activities and great students but though they have cameras it seems like they dont look at them there has been many fights at dean that the front office doesnt know about! they seem like they cant control the children when its time to go home on the bus there were drugs done and sold there were fights at the front that people still dont know about dean needs to be safer for children!!!
i think this school is a great school i go to it its awesome the teachers are nice and its fun
i go their and first off the staff works really hard on dicipline,and their education.itz just the kids dat go their arent willing to learn...so datz where da low scores come from but they have wonderful teachers....they just really have a bad rep!
I love this school! The teachers really care about the students. The school just gets a bad rap!
No rosy review here. As a parent there are plenty of things you need to know about this school. First of all do your research on the internet about this school and read articles, the information you need is all there. Second, talk to parents that have children attending Dean. The information you receive will reinforce the articles written about the school. I have a child attending Dean and safety is my main concern. If I had known, what I know now, I would not send my child to Dean. It's been a tough year and now I know better. Next year my child will attend another school where we can focus on education and not have to be concerned about safety every single day and get out of survival mode.
Although Dean has had some trouble in the past, its excellents staff and dilligent student body make it, in my opinion, a much safer school to be than a more laid-back school where the edge of trouble hasn't sharpened the teachers skills as much as it has at Dean.
Not a good school. The staff has no control of the environment. Poor choice.
My daughter, Isabel, went to Dean Middle school for her seventh grade year, 2005-2006, and part of her eigth year,2006-2007. She loved it. I remember her coming home everyday with a smile on her face and always having something exciting to say about the day! Unfortunatly I made her switch schools in eigth grade. She refused to go to her new school, but I made her! She's not quiet the same. Her grades have gotten lower, and her attitude has been worse. I think if I had just left her at Dean, she would be better off. I recommend you send your children here, because the school is great. The teachers are excellent, and so are the classes. The have strick rules to make sure the students are safe. The construction has been a bit of a problem, but it will all be for the better in the future! -Ana Zavala
My oldest has attended this school from 6th grade and he's now in 8th grade. As a public school it's fine. I think that the tools,teachers and staff are there if the student and parent are motivated to use them to their advantage. There has been alot of construction going on the past three years and unfortunately the students have had to deal with the upheaval. At least the school is being improved and will be a better environment for future students. I heard some bad rumors about the school but all in all it's been a good school and there are some good teachers in each level. My son loved his Woodshop teacher in 7th grade. And we like his Spanish teacher in eight grade.
