The purpose of this study is to apply a standard DEA model, cross-efficiency model and category variables DEA in evaluating operational efficiency for vocational and senior high schools in Xindan area, new Taipei city. The procedures this paper. Firstly, we do not consider neither different properties nor peer group for senior high or vocational school to evaluate their operational efficiencies by standard DEA model. Secondly, we apply DEA cross-efficiency (DEA-CE) model to perform self and peer-evaluation for the operational efficiency of the related different schools. Thirdly, we consider peer group and classify two groups in view of different properties to assess their performance by categorical variable DEA (CVDEA). Finally, by comparisons of the three performance results, the categorical variable model can better estimate operational efficiency for these vocational and senior high schools in the District of New Taipei City than that those of other two models.
