I have been to Heaton for my 6th and 7th grade years. its an average school. There are alot of gangs, fights, and some crtisism..............but overall when u get to the good kids they are friendly and welcoming. The principal during 6th grade held the school well, but in 7th they switched and a new one came, which didnt put hisfoot down as much........now when i visit half the school is wearing innappropriate uniform, they have all kinda of piercings on their face, and some kids are failing. BUT compared to Risley or Roncalli, it is a waaaaaaaaaaaay better school. The best in the district because the rest are terrible

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.
