Skyline High School Reviews

Majority of teachers are genuinely interested in students successes, many opportunities to get involved with the school, however many do not take the opportunity. The school is heavily dependent upon football which is both a good and bad thing, the ASB does a great job recognizing all students!
Review Skyline High School
Skyline is a relatively large high school, with about 2000 students. The faculty are generally very knowledgeable and friendly. The humanities department is especially stellar, with teachers who genuinely care about their students and want them to succeed. However, the school places a large emphasis on sports, especially football. While some other sports didn't even have methods of transportation to the training pool, the school spent millions of dollars on rebuilding the football field into a stadium. For a high school, a stadium with multiple level stands and brand new locker rooms just did not seem to be the best use of school money. Overall, the school was nice.
I really liked attending Skyline High School. All the teachers were very nice and understanding, especially the teachers in the IB Program. From Skyline, I have gained a great education and great experiences. The atmosphere surrounding the school was very positive and encouraging along with their amazing sports programs. I can safely say that I thoroughly enjoyed my high school experience at Skyline.
