Skyline High School Reviews

241 reviews
All Categories
Skyline is an excellent school for academics: it has a wide AP program as well as four "magnet" programs which include a structured, career-oriented environment for the fields of medicine, communications, business, and engineering. It also has a trimester block schedule instead of semesters, which allows spreading out of subjects.
Many of the students are from middle-upper to upper-class families, which has both pros and cons on the overall culture. The faculty are nice and welcoming, although some teachers are better than others. Overall, the facility is clean and up to date.
The school has a developed range of athletics, music, and other extracurricular programs.
Review Skyline High School
What I liked about Skyline was the open community they had in place. In the school, the students were close-knit and collected, and as a student I felt like I could confide in the school counselors. However, the school did have issues with dedication to education. Both teachers and coaches do not seem fully committed to the idea that "students come first", both education wise and athletic wise. I wish I could have had more passionate teachers and coaches, who were committed to me and others for the better.
Entering into skyline, I was a bit nervous my freshman year but I was also an athlete so the nerves weren't that bad. I had a great experience going to Skyline. They taught in trimesters instead of semesters and I like that approach for students. Also, with it being a huge school it was definitely a good workout walking from one class to the other. Based on any bad experiences, I've never experienced any when I went to Skyline, so changing anything wouldn't be possible in my opinion.
