My experience at Skyline High School was amazing.I met so many great people, had so many opportunities and had an advanced educational experience.During my time at Skyline High School,I was entered into the National Academy Foundation(or NAF).During my freshman and sophomore year I played softball.As a junior and senior I had an internship with Ready ,Set,Teach! which allowed me to go to an elementary and be a teacher assistant.With NAF ,the academy I was entered into was the academy of information technology.With the NAF academy the goal is to become NAF certified.With Skyline having The NAF academy it opened so many doors for me ,including giving me the opportunity to get an internship with Verizon for the summer of 2019.I also participated in the Aspen Challenge during my Junior year.It was an amazing school.

Skyline wasn’t a bad school as people would say. If you attend skyline literally just keep your studies as priorities and try your best, theirs a lot of opportunities for students!
I learned a lot by going to skyline. I entered the magnet program and chose graphics design and illustration as my cluster. My cluster teacher taught the class as if it was a college class. We would have to present our finished work to the whole class and whenever he gave us a new assignment it was up to us to stay on task and get it done by the deadline. Once completed we submit it online. Its an awesome experience!
