Unfortunately I made a HUGE mistake allowing my kid to attend this school. Unresponsive leadership, no resolution to issues because the only answer is I don't know. Expecting to speak to anyone but the receptionist is a joke. Why leave a voicemail because phone calls are not returned! When you visit to find out information you are still told I don t know ! They may as well not come to work. Principal's assistant is a horrible ghetto mess who has a horrible attitude! Employees allowed to be nasty are a direct reflects of lack of leadership. Curriculum is a joke, homework on copied paper that is not very legible; teachers are not able to teach they are just robots earning a check! Everything is made to be so difficult. 2+2 is 4 no need for the additional confusion. Replace principal, AP and ghetto support staff I would think there would be a great improvement in this school.

The school is the worse ever in the district! The assistant principal and principal need to be replaced or fired! Bullying is NOT taken seriously and the person that getting bullied is not getting the support for the administration! I will never send any more of my children through Dean until THE AP AND PRINCIPAL are gone! MY TAX MONEY WASTED!

I am a 7 th grader at this school and so far i think it is awsome the library is grate but kinda small . But teacher actually have afterschool sesions to help children w/ test or just to improve and i admit some kids here are hardheaded and refuse to learn but i see some kids actullay starting to focus on school espesially me . Well the food is good not grate but you can bring you own food too we do hv sports such as football soccer volley ball .and more we hv choice of classes and if you pass the starr on you second yr you get electivesbut .....mistakes uhh some of the restooms are nasty and need to be neat .but thanks and for you parents out there this school is great but there can be fights but that is decrasing as time passes hv a little pool like a splash pool sesion that requiers parent permission but you get to hv fun but this school is grate

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.


Posted July 18, 2013

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...


Posted June 24, 2013

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

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.


Posted March 31, 2010

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 love this school! The teachers really care about the students. The school just gets a bad rap!


Posted April 3, 2008

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.

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.

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