Compared to the broader Somerset County Public Schools district, Deal Island School stands out with a favorable student-teacher ratio of 12:1, better than 2 other elementary schools in the district. However, the school's high free/reduced lunch rate of 53.12% suggests a relatively high level of economic disadvantage among the student population, which may impact academic performance. Over the past three school years, Deal Island School's statewide ranking and rating have fluctuated, ranging from 223 out of 862 schools (4-star rating) to 400 out of 802 schools (3-star rating), indicating potential variability in the school's performance.

Overall, while Deal Island School demonstrates some academic strengths, particularly in certain grade levels and subjects, the data also highlights areas for improvement, such as bringing up test scores in weaker areas and addressing the economic challenges faced by a majority of the student population. As the sole school in the city, further analysis and comparison to other schools in the region would provide valuable context to better understand the school's performance and identify opportunities for targeted support and interventions.
