Skyline High School Reviews

I enjoyed the diversity at Skyline High School, but what I loved most about the school was the athletics program. Not only did the program have a place for every athlete, but there were always openings for those who had interest in any sort of exercise. The head coach was always willing and able to assist in the ways he could. If I had to start over and choose Skyline again, I would. I might change the fact that I did not go into a magnet program and expand my knowledge further into the medical field. I would recommend Skyline High School to any who have the choice between Skyline and Pioneer.
Review Skyline High School
Many of the teachers at Skyline High School are more than willing to go the extra mile for any student to make sure they understand the course material. The teachers open their classrooms to students during their free periods and during lunch for extra support if needed. Along with typical lectures, many of the lessons at are interactive which engages the students on different levels. Not only does the student have easy access to communicate with the teachers, parents are able to know how their kids are doing in the class room with a click away by email. Four years at Skyline with the faculty I had classes with fully prepared me for the next level of education at the colligate level.
Skyline is pretty good for a public school. There are some great teachers in the science department and a good range of challenging classes (AP). The problem with the APs is that you either have to take a super hard AP class or you are stuck in blow off classes. The magnet courses are okay however my friends have been complaining about CMPP recently. The music program is lacking in comparison to Pioneer and Huron and the orchestra director is bad at communication. The student body is generally not cliquy and I have not had any problems with bullying. The one bad thing about the students are they are super competitive. Everyone is judged on what college they get into and anything less than the University of Michigan is considered dumb. The bathrooms are awful. There is no water pressure in the sinks so you can't wash your hands. The food is pretty bad as well.
