Skyline High School has its ups and downs. The social studies department is applaudable; the social studies teachers have taught me so much and were able to keep me, a student who struggles with learning history, interested in learning about the material. My main concern with Skyline is its lack of emphasis on clubs/extracurriculars. I feel that there aren't many clubs from which I could choose from and that most clubs aren't advertised enough to maintain a sufficient amount of partakers. It was difficult to find clubs that matched my interests and when I did find a club that I was passionate about, the majority of its participants were gone before the end of the quarter. Participation in clubs/extracurriculars is extremely important when it comes to exposure to different perspectives, experiences, and communities. I wish that Skyline puts more of an emphasis on clubs and extracurriculars so that students can become more exposed to different ideas and communities.

Skyline High School's IB program gives students great opportunities for learning about new perspectives and cultures, and establishing a global mindset while also providing a high standard of academics. Students become well-prepared for college-level courses and higher-level education courses through taking IB and AP courses and also gain very valuable writing skills, all of which are promoted by the encouraging student body and faculty. Many of the teachers are easy to talk to and very understanding about students' situations and can adapt to helping certain students.
Skyline High School has been an overall enjoyable experience. The school itself consists of great teachers, nice students, and fun classes! I found that my three years at Skyline have been very fun and I have learned a lot along the way. Highly recommend going to Skyline.
