Frist I made the choice to switch my high school and go to Skyview instead of Fort based off sports interests at the time. But found that Skyview High school had great teachers that seemed to care and push my harder to achieve more. This was the same in the Sports culture there as well. Of corse, there were occasional fights between students but facility handled it well always. The school i believe is the newest public high school building in the are defiantly newest in the district. The college bound area next to the commons is a great place to learn about schools, scholarships, work study programs, even technical schools if the traditional route isn't for you. Also colleges visit throughout the year from all over the country, but mostly Oregon and Washington schools. Overall quality of school is great but of corse there is room for improvement!

After recently moving to the Pacific Northwest in hopes to find a better education, I can confidently say that Skyview High School has gone far past my expectations. They are an organized, friendly, and highly spirited school. There is so much opportunity to take advantage of, and almost everyone I've met at this school has welcomed me with opened arms. As hard as it was moving for my senior year, my motivation and tenacity continues on thanks to the opportunities and proper learning I have recieved at this wonderful school.
The program (SMT) is a great program for Science, Technology and Mathmatics, however those in the SMT program have very high requirements for those specific subjects that unfortunately do not allow for many other experiences in the different types of arts during regular class hours. The staff is very good at their jobs and make it enjoyable to learn new material, espcially in the more advanced classes that students can take in the later years.
