I loved everything about Skyline High School. To the teachers, staff, cheer team that I was on , the football games and the band. I had a good bond with every teacher I took along with the principal and counselors. They made sure we were safe, made sure we were in class (on time at that) and not in the hallways or restroom skipping. Our safety came first!

I would like to see Skyline High School change in uniform policy and to get rid of uniforms because it doesn't help no one and it doesn't harm anyone, in my opinion. I would also like for better teachers to get hired in Skyline. Some teachers are teachers only because they want to get money, that's not a good teachers in Skyline High School, and then teachers and administrators and the principle look down on students. Teachers should also look out for students who like to cheat in important tests. There's always cheating in every test! This isn't fair for the honest hardworking students.!
I like that there many academic opportunities at Skyline.We have many career ready programs for example the NAF Academies.We have five NAF academies, Engineering ,Finance, Health Science ,Hospitality & Tourism and, Information Technology. In our Career Development Center their is nineteen clusters.In each cluster and academy students prepare for their life after high school.Our school has twenty-seven extracurricular activities . Principal Lombardi allows our school to create our own clubs. The school environment is always vibrant and peaceful.There is never a time our school is not decorated. We love to display our excellence. Overall Skyline High School is a lovely school.
