Honestly Skyline is a great school, like every other public school, we have our ups and downs when it comes to cleanliness and the quality of certain teachers, but Skyline always makes sure to prioritize its students in the best way possible! Skyline will always try to do their best that they can to provide for their students and the students will always make sure that their voices are heard no matter what.

My four years at Skyline High School were quite the high school experience. Skyline caters to creating smaller communities within the larger community with 4 different pathways for sophomores, juniors and seniors and houses for freshmen. The education pathway has incredible teachers who truly care about their students and where I have made a lot of my longtime friends. The climate and culture of the school is arguable the best in OUSD thanks to the ASB leadership team. Like all other schools, there are things that could make Skyline better but each year there are groups and individuals who make it their missions to advocate for those needs and changes. Overall Skyline is a great school to place your child in if you want them to have a great high school experience socially and academically.
What I like about Skyline High School is the diversity and spirit that it has. Skyline's staff are very lovable and supportive. The bonds they have with their students is amazing. The community at Skyline itself is big and welcoming. The only downside of Skyline is their lack of keeping track with certain things like for example the coronavirus situation. Skyline's Administration are failing their students. What they're trying to do for their students during this pandemic, is not really as helpful due to the lack of access to internet/technology or even issues at home like lack of resources to get through this pandemic. I understand that as a educational district, putting in all your effort and having to keep moving forward even through a situation like the pandemic is needed to get through the academic year, but the coronavirus situation is really affecting everyone to the point where it's interrupting one's success.
