Skyline High School Reviews

I was a student at Skyline High School, but I was not in the school boundaries. However, I attended Skyline for their IB Program, and it was a great experience. I was 100% ready for college. I graduated from Skyline in 2016, and my first semester was breeze. The IB Program is difficult, but definitely worth it. All of the staff at Skyline were great! They were able to address any questions or concerns I had quickly, and they were all friendly. They truly care about their students' success and it shows.
Review Skyline High School
Overall I would say it was a fair experience. The IB program gave me a fairly restrictive schedule but I got to take most of the classes I wanted to take. Some of the teachers were bad so I had to self study a lot in some classes other were phenomenal and I learned a lot simply being an engaged student in class. Honestly, Skyline High School lacked diversity, sure there are several ethnic groups in Skyline but they all sort of stick together. The environment wasn't as open and diverse as it claimed to be. I consider myself a really open minded person and I love to learn about different cultures and perspectives so my friend group is really diverse. I think the more diverse your friend group is the more cultured you become. I feel like a more informed person after spending time with them. I wish I had the opportunity of more hands on class setting but I only got this kind of setting through CNA at the Granite Technical Institute.
The academics are really good. A wide range of classes are offered with varying levels of intensity, and numerous areas and specific classes for electives. The majority of the teachers I've had have been helpful and are willing to work with students. The student body is also very energetic and fun for the most part, and there are great activities during the year like spirit week, which really boosts student morale. However, being a player on the softball team, I do wish there was more funding and better attention given to the softball team.
