Skyline High School Reviews

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.!
Review Skyline High School
My experience at Skyline High School was amazing, it is a great school with very well educated teachers and students who tend to give help when others are in need of it. I will always remember the good and bad times I had there because there were some bad experiences, but for the most everything at Skyline High School is great! Their level of spirit is Awesome!
Skyline high school is honestly the best high school there is, it is not only the first magnet school they created but it is the most productive one. All my years at skyline I have been apart of the drill/dance team and however my experience there has really helped me learn more about how much all the students and staff engage in school activities. I graduated skyline high school with honors, and all thanks to the amazing teachers that taught me what I needed to know. Skyline high school, was not only a school but a second home. There was many activities the whole school did together. From its amazing band, football team, dance team and etc. Skyline high school made my four years amazingly great! I will never forget every wonderful memory that I shared with that high school.
