The majority of the school-age children living in Colleyville attend one of two public high schools. Colleyville Heritage, the school that most Colleyville students attend due to district dividing lines, is one of the highest ranked in the country. The school is widely known for the publicity of their 2004 steroids scandal. The school recovered well and is still a high-caliber establishment. The other schools are Grapevine High School, which has been achieving recognition for 100 years in 2006, and LD Bell High School in Hurst, Texas.
