In 2013 The Texas UIL changed the areas schools 4A to 5A and 5A to 6A division, as of 2014 Del Valle High School is in the UIL 5A. Del Valle has had much success in their athletic programs, most of their success coming from their boys soccer program. As of 2008, they have won two Texas State Championships, although soccer has been successful in recent years, other sports such as baseball & softball are in the playoffs year after year. Football is another program that also goes to the playoffs every season under Coach Jesse Perales and is a powerhouse in the 2-4A (Now 2-5A) district. Coach Valerie Salazar-Hairston was honored by The El Paso Times as the Girls All City Track and Field Coach of the Year [9/2010]. Coach Salazar-Hairston led the Conquistadores to their first District Championship and swept the District with all three teams (Freshman, JV and Varsity).

Del Valle also has an award winning marching band that has made it to the UIL Texas State Marching Contest 3 times: 2003, 2005, and most recently 2009. The band is also considered one of El Paso's strong powerhouse. The program has been successful in the NMSU Tournament of Bands, in Las Cruces, NM.

The school opened in August 1987 and is recently celebrating its twenty years. Located very close to the Mexican border, the population of Del Valle is mostly Hispanic. DV graduated its first class in June 1990.
