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.
Academics wise, Skyline is actually quite decent, if you are in the cluster program. For those who are simply in regular classes (non-AP, non-Dual credit) their overall knowledge growth is subpar at times. The school seems to spend more of it's resources for the sports and cluster departments. As far as staff, there are some who will only want their way, no compromises whatsoever. However, there are many other teachers who actually do their jobs and teach their students. Administration is effective, but they have a weird strictness towards hats. Food could be great at times, and bad at times, it all depends on the days. Overall, Skyline High School is a very decent school, it may not be the best, but it is better than most average schools.
