Deer Park Independent School District is a public school district in Deer Park, Texas in the Houston metropolitan area.


The school district is traceable to 1922 when a single elementary facility opened on Deer Park's Center Street along Highway 225.[1] In 1929, the small school (approximately thirty students) was greatly expanded, and additional facilities were created in neighboring areas.[1] The district was officially formed for the school year of 1930, and today it serves most of Deer Park, a portion of Pasadena and La Porte, and the unincorporated area of Lynchburg. Its total enrollment is approximately 12,300 students.[2]

In 2009, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[3]
