Best Public Schools in Deming, NM


The Deming Public Schools District in Deming, New Mexico, serves a predominantly Hispanic student population across 12 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 4 high schools. The district faces significant socioeconomic challenges, with all schools having extremely high free and reduced lunch rates, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

While the majority of the schools in the district are ranked in the bottom half of their respective categories statewide, Early College High School stands out as the highest-performing school, ranking 12th out of 170 high schools in New Mexico and earning a 5-star rating. This school has the highest percentage of white students and the lowest percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients among the high schools. In contrast, Ruben S. Torres Elementary is the lowest-ranked elementary school in the district, ranking 383rd out of 435 elementary schools in the state.

The data also reveals disparities in student-teacher ratios across the schools, with some elementary schools, such as Bell Elementary and Memorial Elementary, having significantly better ratios than others. This raises questions about the equitable distribution of resources and staffing within the Deming Public Schools District. The success of Early College High School, however, highlights the potential benefits of providing students with the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school, which could be expanded to other schools in the district.
