Skyline High School Reviews

At Skyline, there is an academically intense environment. The teachers expect a lot of their students, but most of the academic pressure comes from the parents. The vast majority of students attending Skyline have wealthy parents who expect their kids to succeed in the same way that they did. This creates a competitive and stressful atmosphere, where many students feel disappointed about a B grade. While the rigor of my classes prepared me very well for college, I know that this environment also took a toll on some students. Skyline would do well to encourage balance and mental health by allowing for more elective classes and by implementing teaching strategies that better support the mental health of students. Skyline excels in the athletic department, and supporting school sports and attending football games unifies the student body very well. However, the arts could use more funding and support, as they are exceptional programs that are often underappreciated.

Skyline is one of the most highly ranked high schools in the state for academics, which creates a very competitive atmosphere. Skyline has a higher rate of mental illnesses and other related problems than other schools in the area because of this. While the school itself and a majority of the teachers and staff are great, the competitive atmosphere can make students push themselves a little too far sometimes in order to feel like they are succeeding in school. I didn't realize until I started Running Start just how stressed I was going to Skyline.
Skyline high school is a good school. It is a wonderful place to get a standard or IB education. The teachers are wonderful and the faculty is helpful. Students in leadership positions in this school put their all into encouraging school spirit. There is an incredible focus on sports. Student athletes are heralded much more than necessary. Overall, Skyline High School is a place to learn for ordinary students, and a pedestal for football players. Thank you.
