I have loved Skyline Ranch for my Kindergarten son! He had ADHD and his teacher has been amazing! He has improved in all areas since the beginning of the year, and has learned so much so far. The staff is always friendly. I feel like this is a safe school that looks out for the students safety. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a great school in this area.
Skyline Ranch K-8, Very pleased with all the staff & every single teacher my child has had thus far. We have been @ this school for 6 yrs & will continue to be a part of it. Looking forward to another awesome yr. with a lot of new faces (principle & vice principle, teachers etc) Finally I can say I feel safe with the way the drop off & pick up for students has evolved. Awesome School, fun& friendly staff that are willing to educate our students & willing to answer any parents questions or concerns. Thank you Skyline Ranch K-8 for encouraging my kids to strive to the fullest of All their achievements!!
We took our child to the reading night yesterday and it was great. Teachers were dressed in costumes. They offered crafts, food, and stories read by the staff. Amazing!!!! We had a blast. Mr. Haugen read to the kids too! We look forward to more events.
My kids are new to this school this year. I like how involved the staff is with the kids. I like how they take time to take turns to supervise the kids from before school to after. I like how they are very concerned with the safety I the kids. It eases my mind. Seeing this is there first year at Skyline I can't comment on the education. I'm waiting to see. But as for the staff they are great!
Wow, what a difference with the new administrators. They are everywhere. I went in to put money on my son's lunch account and all three were in the cafeteria supervising the kids. My son says they are in there everyday. Each morning when I drop off my son they are they are in the front of the building welcoming the kids. It really is a pleasant change from the past few years. My son loves going to school this year and always talks about kids getting awards for good behavior. I see a lot of great things happening at the school. If it continues this is going to be a great year. Great job Florence for putting new administrators in the school. The teachers seem very happy too.
My children have been going to this school for 3 years and I have seen a lot of improvement in the quality of care provided to the students. The staff is nice and really treats the students like family. This school offers a lot of extra curricular activities for the students to be involved in.
Great school improving every year... Office staff can be a little bet more friendly. Was given a tour by Jackie, very friendly answerd my question and the princpal toook time to speak to our family. My girls love the school and their Bully prevention program. I was even offered a parenting community class.
love it, MUCH better than when we were at skyline ranch, my daughters grades went up, the teacher still enjoys teaching unlike teachers we have had at schools past. love the people in the office, and everyone is more than willing to help when we have a question.
Horrible school. I taught here for one year and they have NO interest in your children! Just interested in how many kids they can fit into a classroom!
This school is probably the one of the worst schools my children have ever attended!!! Kids are out of control in the classrooms, teachers and administration do nothing about it, even after being reported several times. The administration is terrible, the people who work the front desk are are only there to collect a paycheck and really don't care what happens at the school as long as they are getting paid. Do not send your child to this school!
This school is lacking from the moment it starts. This school year started with all the parents and students showing up for registration and NONE of the schedules being ready for 6 to 8 grade. When they did print them they were incorrect. Missing classes and incorrect classes. Then a quarter into the year they issued the teachers a lesson plan, and started a "Reteach" program. Kids sit a hear the same thing they have already learned in the regular math and english classes. It has no enrichment portion, even though that is part of the name of these new classes. It is mid year and there are schedule problems again. There is no challenge in the classroom. (When a teacher says they are challenging your child but they have a 99% to 100% in the class there is no learning occuring.) Add into all of this that there is NO involvement by parents. I went to a PTO meeting and there were 6 people present including me and the PTO board. I was offered the open position on the board because I showed up. I am looking for a private school for both of my kids. Put your kid in a charter school like eduprize or Ben Franklin.
We have been ecstatic with the teachers and principal. That is what is most important in a school!
When we moved to Skyline I heard many bad things about the school but couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised they were wrong. I have been so impressed with the teachers commitment to the kids and the value of learning they are teaching. Parent involvement really makes a big impact on how children learn, and I think that if the parents take an active role in their children the teachers will be able to succeed more. The bad reviews are from years ago and the rating on this site does not reflect the current status of the school.
Great school! The teachers and staff are very friendly and my son really enjoys going to this school.
I think the test scores speak for themselves. We all have opinions and very specific experiances. Even as a very involved parent, without the combined effort from the teacher, it remains a losing battle. Teaching is not a 'job' it is a career choice and should be treated that way by every teacher or they are in teaching for the wrong reasons. Unfortunatly, our teachers are not graded as our students are, and if they were, many of them would have to change their ways or be on their way. This is a result of the Florence District allowing low standards to be kept by their teaching staff. My son repeatedly complains about how tired he is of the teachers yelling. That really does not make a pleasant learning environment. I don't blame the teachers, I blame FUSD for establishing and maintaining incredibly low standards.
I have two boys that attend this school and can say nothing but great things about it! I have never had a problem here, and the teachers that I have dealt with over the last two years have been great. As far as overcrowding is concerned, you show me a public school that doesn't have 20-30 kids per class. I'm thirty years old and they had the same problem back when I was in school. Overall I would rate Skyline a great and safe school to attend.
I am currently an 8th grader at Skyline Ranch. I have attended this school for about four years and would have to admit that this school has changed big time since the first year! Most teachers care for the students to succeed in their class.
I am now a Seventh Grade student at Skyline Ranch and I think that the school is amazing!I will have been a Student there for 2 years now and over the time I have seen a great improvement in the school.The teachers work hard to make sure their classes have all the materials needed,They have even go out of their way to bring in items of their own such as movies that have to do with the material we are learing in class,during AIMS,(My teacher was unaware of the snacks we got from the school)and spent her money on snacks for the students so they didn't have to go without.They listen to the students when they have a problem/concern with the class/student.They handle the situation in a very fair way and now they are even moving students to Magma Ranch to'cut down'on the population problem.--A Skyline Student
I also have two kids at this school. I was scared to death to send them to this school after reading some of the postings on this page but I have found my experience to be the complete opposite from those postings. The people who are upset that there are 22 to 25 kids in a class need to visit any public school back east. We grew up with 35 kids to a class and we still got a good education. I agree with the person who said the parents need to step up. Take the time to educate YOUR child. Take ownership of your own responsibility and stop putting it off on the school and teachers. My kids teachers good and let me know right away if there is an issue that needs to be addressed. I am pleased with my decision to send my kids to this school.
I have two students in the school this year My wife and I are very involved with thier teachers. I can tell you that regaurdless of what surveys and posts say that unless you interview the teacher and get involved with your kids you just dont know. Right now this school rates a 5 out of 10. The teachers my kids see and my experience is alot higher then this. My kids teachers really care about thier students and really know them. Overcrowding is still a problem but lets face it the area we live in is more at fault then the school is.
