Skyline High School Reviews

My experience at Skyline was amazingly great! Great teachers and counselors, and there were many activities to do and clubs to join; not only that, but our school district gave us the opportunity to take Career Development classes and without any cost. I have great memories from Skyline, even though I joined just two years ago, and I really appreciate my teachers. Before meeting my math teacher, I was clueless about math in general, but he managed to teach us things that otherwise would have seemed impossible to learn.

I also joined the Ultimate Frisbee team and Tabletop Club during the afternoons (before the Quarantine happened) and I had the chance to meet a lot of wonderful people that I became friends with. It was fun to participate on tournaments and learn more about team work.

Overall, I did enjoy spending my junior and senior years there, and I hope the next generation of students can make of Skyline an even better school through more community driven activities.

Skyline is easily the best school in the St. Vrain Valley School District. Being a STEM school, we have a close relationship with the CU Boulder Engineering program and we have tons of access to new technology. . On top of being a high-rated STEM school, we also have an amazing Visual Performing Arts program. There is a variety of classes available on the visual side for art from beginning to AP. This program is always putting on concerts and plays and the entire community files in to watch! On the activities side, there are tons of clubs to be involved in if you aren't interested in sports! There are several sports offered with options of freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Personally, I have participated in volleyball and track all four of my years at Skyline. It is awesome to compete against other schools and interact with people from your own school you may not see on an everyday basis.
My favorite part about Skyline were the clubs and sports that they offered. I participated in a few, and there's even a Super Smash Bros. Club! Tabletop and Ultimate Frisbee were also huge influences on me and my perspective on High School, as not only a place to learn and study, but as a place where interacting with others is encouraged and self-improvement is promoted.
