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.
Skyline High School is wonderful! I have been at Skyline since my freshman year. The teachers are wonderful. They take time out to give extra help. They prepare you for college. I have learned the importance in studying through my teachers. The only thing I would change about Skyline is, I wouldn't leave. Seniors would start freshman training there.
Looking back at my experiences in Skyline high school, there were plenty ups and downs. It is a huge school with different magnet programs that are very helpful. Teachers care about their students when students put forth effort and initiative. I have had some of the best teachers at skyline. There are many extracurricular activities to choose from and there is a club for just about anything. However, throughout the school year, there had been students who lacked home training and were very disrespectful. Besides that, Skyline high school has an exceptional team of staff and faculty members. My only advice is to surround yourself with positive people who want to be successful.
