Skyline is a very good public high school with excellent students, faculty and staff. The school spirit is amazing compared to the schools in the area, and the faculty tries very hard to connect with the students. The dual enrolled courses at Skyline heavily prepare the students for college. The school is fairly diverse. This school is very safe, as everyone in the school is very comfortable with everything to do with safety. There are plenty of options when it comes to extracurriculars, weather you are interested in any clubs or sports. Overall, this is a very good school with a lot of positives.

The administration and staff are awesome. They go out of their way to help and be there for the student if they are having trouble or need help with anything. My experience in band has been amazing, but our little school could use more funds for the arts (theater and band). It is frustrating to have to use old equipment and old uniforms, when the football team gets new/different uniforms all the time. Band (music) creates an environment of family, team, talent, discipline just as a team sport such as football. We are serious about our music and about our education, yet our program receives no help at all. It's very hard to compete with other schools when we cannot keep up with instruments and things we need to achieve excellence in the area of music.
I wish the teachers would help students in a more interactive way. Certain subjects are hard due to the pure fact that a teacher isn't invested. For example, pre calculus at my school is harder than calculus just because of the ability of the teacher! However, I love my school, and think it is a good environment for learning overall.
