New Deal is a wonderful school. I've been going for only 4 years and I love it. My mom went when she was a teenager and that is why we go to New Deal. I love the coaches and they help anyone who needs it with anything. The academics are great and they are a recognized school district. I can't say enough about this school and it was definatly better than my old school. I can't wait to finish my highschool years here at New Deal.

My daughter has been going to New Deal for 9 years, and it has been a great experience for us. Her scores on standardized tests are excellent, and she is involved in virtually every activity in which she is interested. Can't beat it. The administration is first-rate and she loves her teachers.

Speaking from experience, my children have gone to this school for 14 years. When it comes to sports if you aren't rich, white, popular or related to school staff you are treated differntly. My son and daughter are both very sport oriented and are good at what they do, they are hard workers and try their very best in what they do,they aren't picked because they are Hispanc, neither are many of the other Hispanic children.... It is very noticed, you can talk to any hispanic child or parent and they will tell you the same thing, Hispanics are treated differently... Besides being prejiduce New Deal is a small, close school, some of the faculty are outstanding.... New Deal needs to stand back and see racial and finacial preferences are happening and parents are pulling their students out of this district due to this reason. Who can we complain to?

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.
