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.[3]

As of the 2011-12 school year, the district's one school had an enrollment of 78 students and 13.4 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 5.82:1.[1]

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.[4] By 2014, less than 10% of students in the district were Deal residents.[5] 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.[3]

For ninth through twelfth grades, students attend Asbury Park High School in neighboring Asbury Park as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Asbury Park Public Schools.[6]


Deal School served an enrollment of 78 students as of the 2011-12 school year.[7]


Core members of the district's administration are:[8][9]

Michael Salvatore, superintendent of the Long Branch Public Schools, oversees the Deal district as a shared service under an arrangement reached in August 2014 in which Salvatore is paid an additional $10,000 on top of his $165,000 base salary.[10]
