I only recently moved to Skyview High School but I have already experienced the exceptional environment. Each teacher isn't just there to give information, but is there to help every individual succeed. One of the unique things about Skyview is their passing periods, I have been to four other high schools and none have had passing periods with music and I love it! I believe that having music in the halls during passing periods contributes to a positive environment and helps students know how much time they have left as the music stops about a minute before the bell rings. Lastly, I've been very impressed with Skyview's counselors. When signing up for classes, my counselor did everything she could to help me get the classes I wanted and helping me know what was best for me. The career counselors have been spectacular as they are there to provide help with scholarships, college information, and concurrent classes. Skyview High School has given me a great experience!

While being a student here for four years, there have been ups and downs. Luckily, more ups. The faculty is great and helpful to students. There is a lot of variety in the classes to choose from. Only downside has been the hick-ups with the new technology, which is understandable. Overall great school!
Skyview makes all activities feel important. There are no "popular" kids and everyone is super nice. Because they offer transfer options with other schools in the district, they have tons of options for classes, and with their defined pathways, there are career prep classes for everyone. They offer many advanced options for students who wish to go above and beyond, not to mention there are tons of clubs and sports teams which are very open-minded, you may not be the best, but if you're willing to learn and work hard, there's most definitely a spot for you!
