Skyview High School is a magnificent place to go to school. There are so many opportunities and so much to do. The staff is eager to help out where they can; all you need to do is ask. The view is stunning, though, students and staff alike rarely step out to see it. The halls are built wide to reduce traffic flow. Students respect each other and follow unspoken rules-such as walking on the right side of the halls and stairwells-with pride for their school. Homecoming, TWIRP, and Prom are the events of the year! The Homecoming parade brings in thousands of children from the numerous schools around town to see the display of school spirit that Skyview provides. Our spirit is practically seeping out of the walls. I wouldn't transfer schools for the world. I love it so much that I'd take an extra year if they offered it.

I've went to Skyview for almost 4 years and I've seen it all. My personality doesn't fit in with the environment of Skyview High School. I'm drama-free and I'm just at school to learn, make some new friends, and have some fun too. The best thing at Skyview is the teachers! Most the teachers are the best I've ever had.
I have gotten the opportunity to be a Board of Director at Skyview and help make many of the decisions at the school. It is a very diverse environment that welcomes many students. The teachers for the most part are very good, it is just the type of people that you can work best with that really decides if a teacher is good for you. The sports are great and a very fun place for kids to participate in or watch. All in all it is a very great environment.
