This is a wonderful school distract. The faculty works with students to ensure success without just giving it to them. The staff works together to resolve any issues that occur and there is always a welcoming atmosphere as well as small class size and one on one opportunity! There is so much potential at this school to start college education early! I have seen great success out of the student body! Definitely recommend Hayden as a choice school.

Hayden High School is small enough to give kids very individualized attention - from those wishing an intense college track to those looking for vocational trades. Incredible vocational program where all kids learn welding; woodworking and auto repair... items that will enhance (and supplement) a future college degree. As with many schools, it provides accordingly to what a student puts in as far as effort (and parental involvement).

Teachers are great, some administrators need improvement. Music opportunities are good, art is available, trade courses are outstanding. Students are not well prepared for college. Basic English like core words, sentence structure, and punctuation aren't taught. Community is great, and parent involvement in activities is good. On-line educational opportunities are good.

I have found this school to be less than adequete. The students are not challenged, and classes are taught to the lowest common denominator. My child rarely has homework (once a week or less) and even with sports is hardly taxed to achieve a 4.0. The administration does not support the staff and makes doubtful choices about who they hire. The sports programs are very basic, offering only football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track, and cheerleading. The only other clubs are FBLA, EPYCS and CAN. Our music program has maybe 5 students.

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.
