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.

I had a really good experience at Skyline. I was involved with various extracurricular activities which really allowed my voice as a student to be heard. I found that the administrators seemed to take my opinions seriously, especially when discussing how the school could be improved. One thing about Skyline that I didn't necessarily love was how different the classes were. As an example, students taking Spanish could have one of three teachers. One of these teachers made the class extremely challenging and unexciting. The other teachers were much more laid back and their classes were easier and more intriguing. Overall, Skyline High School has some really amazing teachers who truly care about educating their students and ensuring that they learn and master the material. I never had a problem with bullying nor did I ever feel uncomfortable going to school. Skyline is a safe and inclusive space with many resources to help each and every student.
I love the opportunities I have at Skyline High School. I am in the Health and Medicine Magnet Program, which is strenuous but also incredibly interesting, and many of the experiments we do are ones normally performed in a professional setting. I have taken (or am taking) 6 AP Classes, and I think all of them prepare me very well for the AP Test. The trimester schedule allows me to focus on my interests; by graduation, I will have taken 10.5 credits of science in four years. As president of Skyline's Queer-Straight Alliance, I can say that the student body is overall very accepting of LGBTQ+ students, as are most teachers. However, we are still struggling to achieve a more accessible gender-neutral bathroom. The only other complaint I have is that the parking lot and stairways were not well-designed to prevent bottlenecks.
