Skyline High School Reviews

Skyline is like many other places and things in life: exactly what you make it! SHS provides students with a variety of opportunities from an extensive list of athletic teams, extracurriculars, clubs, and groups. The school also has deep-rooted connections in the community and furthermore with the University of Michigan. I strongly urge students to take advantage of any and all opportunities they are presented with.
Teachers, however, are not all created equal at Skyline. Some are simply there to make it through the day and collect their paycheck. One of the products of the American public school system, I suppose. Others go above and beyond for their students and are truly there to prepare their students for college and beyond. It is important for student to establish relationships with these teachers. If I were to name a few, I would most definitely say Sra. Aretz, Ms. Whitehorn, Mrs. Ray and Mrs. Hetter.

Skyline High School is overall a well established and comfortable learning environment for students. As in all high schools, there are teachers and courses that do not benefit certain students, but overall, students are generally supportive of most teachers and classes offered at the school. The magnet programs are recommended by most students who chose to take them at the school as well, and they help students find their community within the school. AP courses are not available to students in 9th grade and their are only two general options for AP classes students may take 10th grade. If you are looking for a high school that will foster a high level of academic rigor from the very beginning, one will have to work diligently with school counselors and administration to push for a unique academic plan that will increase course intensity.
Although I wasn't their very long, everyone I met was very nice and relaxed.
I was apart of a program that introduced me to other students and they were all diverse. The hall monitors were very helpful and casual. The food was great also!
As far as school work goes, I was apart of two ap classes and I think you get what you put into it. If you work hard you're going to get great scores back.
