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.

Skyline High School is a great school, for many considerable reasons. The biggest one is the teachers. There are a whole lot of really good people leading our education- men and women who are very intelligent and spend their class time teaching really well. Ranging in subject matter, they have different passions; but the similarity is that a great number of them love what they teach, and it makes the students' constant time in class so much better and more interesting. Some are really loud, in a comical and actually quite effective way; some are calm and cool, and really easy to talk to about anything; and some are straight-up hilarious. Best of all, most of them have a mix between unafraid humor (which helps all of us remember the material better, and be more engaged in lectures), interesting random stories, and an air of "you can talk to me about anything, I'm chill and understanding." I love so many teachers here, and I trust way more staff than I would've expected to at any school
Skyline is a great school for students looking to challenge themselves with academics and extracurricular activities. There are many opportunities for Skyline students to shine, and is the only school currently in Granite School District to offer the IB Diploma Program, which will help students for college credit as well as develop their self-discipline. Overall I would recommend it for its academics. However, sports and social environment is somewhat lacking.
