Skyline Prep is an A rated school with the best teachers and most loving Principal. They care for our teenagers and at this level of changing classes, taking on sports programs and other activities of a high school student, I was pleased to say.....WE LOVE THIS SCHOOL. My sons starts his honors program this year and he is getting every opportunity to be prepared for college. Students who want to be prepared for a college education should attend this school.

I sent my son there this year as it was a new school and promised the best teachers and resources. In the first quarter my son had 5 different teachers before a permanent one came aboard. They had a full brand new football team, but apparently had no money for books or computers. Due to this lack of student resource support I pulled my child and sent him to Basis for a real education. I have also been told by a neighbor that the entire teaching staff and the principal quit at the end of the year as they were frustrated by the lack of support as well. Do not send your children here if you want them to get a college ready education.

Skyline puts up with a lot more than other schools do for the $$$$. The student sucess rate is a mystery to me because from my observation these kids are not being challenged and the teacher turnover is a joke. Visit the school during school hours and it will 'paint the picture' for you.

My son went here for 3 years. Theres much to say but overall was good. They certainly put up with a lot more there then they have to or probobly should. There are times they go through a lot of teachers (some only last a day or two), but the ones who stay are dedicated. My son has enjoyed Hinkle's video production class and Goldson's Hebrew language classes. While a lot of behavior wouldn't be accepted at other schools Skyline does a good job of helping kids other schools gave up on. I've seen a lot come a long ways. I am concerned about the direction. The front office staff seems to blow little issues out of proportion. Though lots of kids have issues there, it's not filled with mean spirited cliques. Regular Joes are accepted there. As for education, I think they succeed with most kids as best they can.

i attended this school a couple of years ago. Without their excellent staff i would be an entirely different person; I would not be attending the university that i am know and i would not be on the dean's list. To be entirely honest i was a horrible kid, but the staff was very patient with me. The best teacher when i was attending is now the principle(Ms. Ryan); this assures me that the school has only gotten better.

Diplomas used to represent a standard of knowledge and intellect; kids here are handed a diploma with the skill of a 3rd grader. Skyline Technical High School has a reputation in Ahwatukee for being a last chance school were kids can get away with too much and graduate with no work. This comes directly from kids who go there and have friends who go there. The school was overall dysfunctional and unorganized.

It has been a year since our son has graduated from Skyline Tech. The three years he attended were the most successful ones for him of his total school experience. The Principal, teachers and staff built a relationship with my student, accepting his unique personality, discovered his learning style and taught to it. In turn, my son no longer 'resisted' his education, but began participating in the process. The teachers encouraged him to the point of his desiring to graduate with honors. He did. Our whole family benefited because the stress level in our home dropped significantly. We hold the educators of Skyline Tech in the highest esteem.

We, at Skyline have taken a two year review of all the programs at this school and are moving towards an academically rich and sound school. Our dance program and arts program is our electives that enhance our academic curriculum. We are meeting Performing School status and AYP. We are a varied, culturally rich school and invite students, who want learn in small classes, to join our programs. Our leadership is new for the 2005-06 school year and with the teachers we are making this school happen!

I don't believe anyone can actually learn anything. When I attended this school, I never learned a darn thing, all I had to do was show up every day and I got a diploma.

I was a pregnant student when I attended this school and this school was extremely helpful in getting me to finish my classes before the baby came. They played an active role in helping me succeed.

My child has attended Skyline for almost two years. He transferred there from an overcrowded public school. We are very pleased with the school and it's (the) administration.

I don't know what basis the previous parent rated this school with such high ratings, but my experience was very different. This school's program lacks a philosophical foundation and the management of students at its Chandler site was poor. Maybe they made improvements, but I would certainly visit the new campus just to make sure that everything is in order. I observed students wandering in the halls not working on school work, and I even observed students sleeping in class. I overheard students cursing at fellow students and their teachers. I was suspect of the management of the school and this serves as a reminder to parents to visit a campus or shop around to see what type of students attend the school.
