I cannot emphasize what a wonderful opportunity this school is/was to our family. Everyone is a true professional, with patience, guidance, goal setting and RESULTS. Students are not a number here, they count. Teachers are involved, caring and have the time to spend with the students. They return phone calls if needed, answer emails and follow up consistantly. Public schools these days are filled with too much paperwork that tends to get misplaced, or wrong grades entered in the system. This charter school is the best of the best on the west side of town. When you choose a school for you kids think about charter schools versus public schools. Could you teach 35 to 45 kids in a public school setting with that pay and be satisfied and successful? Charter schools give a much more realistic educational journey to the students as they deserve. Thank you for your excellence Skyline West Prep!

After an awful experience at the nearby public high school, I brought my son here. He came in to finish his 2nd semester as a Junior and we discovered he has enough credits to graduate in May, an entire year early! The teachers send weekly progress reports and the principal and his office staff are very helpful and supportive. Awesome school!

Skyline high school is a very helpful school. I was failing every class for almost my entire high school years, Untill i came here. All the teachers are so sweet and are really determined to make you pass. I'm now on National Honors Society and grades are improving. I would really recomend students coming here! :D

Skyline is a great school. They have small class sizes and care about each student. They help keep us arents informed with weekly progress reports. My son used to attend the public school in the area and I didnt hear from any ofhis teachers over the course of 18 weeks. They let him fail a class without notifying me. Skyline has given him the chance to catch up. Thanks Skyline West...

Skyline is great with keeping parents informed about their kids, as well as keeping trouble outof the school as much as possiable. The teachers are well understude while they teach. The principal Coach Frankie, he is great when it comes to discplining the troubled students. He works well with all students, makes them second think about their decisions. Choices is a big one at this school, overall I personaly have to say Mrs. Inmon, an Coach P. are the best teachers here. They know how to make us smile, an think positive an think things threw. Learning as well.

Skyline is a great school for troubled teens and students who would like to graduate earlier. Some of the teachers are really nice and some are very hard. The classes are descent there isn't a lot of homework. The Principal Coach Frankies is an awsome Principal and makes sure the students are on track with their work and grades, and lets the parents know as well. In conclusion this is a descent school to go to.


Posted November 23, 2010

I currently am a Skyline West Prep student and have been so for the last year and a half. The teachers here share a special interest and care for each student and are willing to set something aside to help and answer with any questions. Coach Frankie is an extremly loving principle and cares a great deal for every student. I believe his intentions for me and every other student is to help us succeed in life and help make them better. If we have something troubling us, he would be the first one to try and help. Sports and academic wise, Skyline is a good school to attend. I would like to see more offered courses and more money put towards both sports and academics. I and other students are fully aware the staff and teacher do their best and go beyond what they are given to make our high school experiance great.

Skyline West Prep is a tremendous school. The teachers and staffs all are wonderful to each and every student. They have recently just had a Thanksgiving food drive for families on campus. The teachers help every student, they explain there lesson and make sure its well understood. The principle helps everyone out. He doesnt just favor one student he treats them all fair and shows that he really is here for us and that he really does care. I totally recommend this school for anyone. This school helped me catch up on my credits and now I will be able to graduate a year early. Thanks to Skyline West Prep!

I love Skyline West Prep HS in Peoria AZ. I have two children in high school and if it wasn't for Coach Frankie, Skyline West and all their dedicated teachers I am not sure my oldest child would have made it through HS. I love the enviroment Skyline provides to its students. The teachers have somewhat small class sizes so they can focus on individual students, the used to offer one-on-one tutoring on Fridays. They are on a block schedule and only attend four-days per week. They have a really nice campus that is well kept. I would have to highly recommend Skyline West as a GREAT school...

I loved the school and i made alot of good friends. I always had alot of time in class to finish my work. It was a really good school and still is!


Posted February 3, 2007

I have 2 children at this school. I started out very pleased but as the year has gone on the school seems to be falling apart.

I attend this school and have for two years now. It is amazing; it's not like other high schools where you're a number to everyone, but rather you're known by your name to all the staff and everyone. The relationships that are built there last. Last year was even better since it was smaller and the junior high wasn't on campus, but nonetheless it is still a great school.

We have three children at Skyline and have been very pleased. This is not a school that is under the mandate of tradition, but rather a forward looking school, approaching education without the presumption that quantity of time in class outweighs the quality of that time. We are very happy here.

If your child is able to stay on task & works well on their own, this is a great way for them to bring up their gpa and graduate early. My daughter did much better here than in regular high school and made very good grades as well as bringing her gpa up from 2.0 to a 3.0 in 2 blocks!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
