The school, which serves grades 9 through 12, is a part of the Spring Independent School District.
Dekaney High School, which opened in 2007, is named after Andy Dekaney, a former district school board member.
In 2015 the school administration announced that it would create "small learning communities" within Dekaney in order to improve academic performance, and each would have a dedicated section of the school.
In February 2017 the district proposed redrawing the attendance boundaries of its high schools; this would take effect in the 2020-2021 school year. The district also plans to establish one ninth grade center for each comprehensive high school. According to the proposed 2020-2021 high school map, the eastern portion of the Spring census-designated place will be reassigned from Spring High School to Dekaney High School.
The school received the Texas Education Agency (TEA) ratings of "academically unacceptable" or "improvement required", the lowest rankings, in 2008, 2011, and 2013. Nora Olabi of The Spring Observer wrote in 2015 that Dekaney "has struggled to maintain high academic standards."
