The Deal School District is a community public school district that serves students in kindergarten through eighth grade from Deal, in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. The school was established in September 1953.
As of the 2017–18 school year, the district, comprising one school, had an enrollment of 165 students and 17.1 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 9.7:1. In the 2016–17 school year, Deal had the 35th-smallest enrollment of any school district in the state, with 165 students.
As a participant in the Interdistrict Public School Choice Program, the majority of the district’s students live outside of Deal, with 37 slots allocated for choice students in the 2014-15 school year, 20 of which were for Kindergarten students. As of the 2002-03 school year, nearly 75% of students at Deal School attended from outside the district on a tuition basis, paying $4,300 per student, per year, with students coming from the neighboring communities of Loch Arbour, Asbury Park, Ocean Township, Red Bank and Belmar. By the 2013-14 school year, nearly 90% of the district’s enrollment was from choice students, for whom the state paid the district $12,500 in supplemental aid per student.
For ninth through twelfth grades, students attend Shore Regional High School, as part of a sending/receiving relationship. As of the 2017–18 school year, the high school had an enrollment of 651 students and 56.0 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.6:1. The relationship with Shore Regional succeeds a previous agreement under which students from deal attended Asbury Park High School in neighboring Asbury Park as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Asbury Park Public Schools.
