Colleyville, TX. Town in Dallas-Ft. Worth (DFW Metroplex
). Affluent town of about 20,000; local high school is Colleyville Heritage and is one of the top high schools in the country. Colleyville shares many similarities with next-door Southlake
, TX (also home to Heritage rival Southlake Carroll
), and Colleyville is in a joint school district with Grapevine
The city's biggest flaw is that it believes it has no flaws. A slew of teen suicides in 2004 and a steroid abuse scandal in the high school football team landed Colleyville Heritage on the front page of Newsweek. The town has recovered swimmingly. But constant, unmonitored teen partying and rampant prescription drug abuse continue with little attention. Parents are often blamed for giving their kids too many luxuries without any supervision.
Colleyville shares many students with Grapevine, but has more in common with the developing town of Southlake.
