Administration is very preoccupied with bullying, poor behavior, fighting, drugs, and theft. Teachers are overpowered by unruly students. Teaching and learning are taking a back seat at this school.

Every time I have went to the school or called the staff is very rude, like you wasting their time or they have something better to do. I am not impressed at all.

Great school overall. Students like me are adjusting to a new principle and he is a lot more serious then Rangel. I consider Jahnke a great principle for his first year at Heath. Students will grow to like him but for about two years, some students will try to run all over Jahnke but Jahnke will not allow him. He has cracked down on the drugs in our school and has gotten rid of kids who are a pain or are not here to learn. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because we are in the adjusting stages right now but by 2010, Heath will be higher then most public schools in Greeley. Great place to send your kids because they will get the education they need.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
