Deming High

Summary:

Deming High School is a public high school in Deming, New Mexico, serving 1,279 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Deming Public Schools district, which is ranked 86 out of 119 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating.

Deming High School stands out for its significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (87.96%) compared to nearby schools like Early College High School (76.97%) and Mimbres Valley High School (82.35%). However, the school consistently underperforms the state average in academic proficiency across all subjects, with only 25% of students proficient in Language Arts, 8% in Mathematics, and 36% in Science, compared to state averages of 38%, 24%, and 34%, respectively. Deming High has a ranking of 105 out of 170 schools in the state and a 2-star rating, while the nearby Early College High School ranks 12th and has a 5-star rating.

The high percentage of students (99.92%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Deming High suggests that the school serves a predominantly low-income population, which can present significant challenges in terms of access to resources, parental involvement, and overall student support. While the proximity to higher-performing schools in the same district presents opportunities for collaboration and learning, the persistent underperformance of Deming High indicates the need for targeted efforts to address the unique needs and cultural backgrounds of its students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
