On Overall Experience: I am very privileged to attend Skyline High School. I believe it is one of the best public school experiences you could hope for. My favorite experiences include homecoming week, and participating in cross country and track and field.

On Food: There are lots of choices, some are fine, like the pizza that is bought from another business, but there are basically no healthy options besides the less than impressive salad bar.

On Resources & Facilities: The facitilities are nice and many parts are new because the school isn't that old. The floor plan is confusing, but easy to get used to. There is technology easily available by desktop computers in many classrooms, the library, two computer labs, and several large laptop carts. There are also school iPads available. The guidance counselors at Skyline leave something to be desired. There have been times when my friends have needed to talk to their counselors right away and they have been turned away and given an appointment two days later when the situation is no longer fresh. They are also very obnoxious about getting recommendations to seniors for college applications. Over all the counseling center is under staffed for the number of students that attend the school. The college prep resources on the other hand are excellent, provided by our college and career center.

On Teachers: The teachers at Skyline on average are very knowledgeable, qualified, passionate, and nice. There are the few boring or strict teacher that no one wants, but what school doesn't have those? I have liked more of my teachers than I have not liked.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There is a lot of diversity at Skyline, there are high percentages of Asian, Indian, and White people, but there are also other races, all of whom are accepted. Problems regarding race or sexual orientation are very, very rare.
