As a parent & professional in the community I beleive great leadership guides good practice. The experience and Profesionalism amongst the teaching staff is outstanding. I appreciate the transparency of the faculty and the open communication I am able to have with my son's teachers. As our son moves into 4th grade I look forward to the quality education provided by this institution.
As a group they are effective, but as individuals some teachers are very effective. Currently my youngest son is doing very well on paper, but is not doing well emotionally at school. The teacher is too strict and does not provide enough activity for her kindergarten class. Most of the children are in timeout during recess and than forgotten; not receiving the physical activity needed to have a proper balance of health and wellness. Being effective in the educational process does not mean that the healthiest way to learn is provided. We will finish the year and move on. This year my wife and I had little communication between us and the teacher.
For the teachers that have been teaching a Skyline for some time now have helped set certain standards that are very effective in the educational growth of my children. Including implementing the importance of honesty, integrity, and fairness. A great way to end bullying. Some of the more recently hired teachers are still learning the process.
I believe that most of the teachers at skyline ranch are very well educated and are making a difference, for the better, in their educational process, but I would like to see more support for parents. Some actions were not carried out and ignored.
Mr Haugen and Mrs Potter are clear, prompt, compassionate communicators! They ALWAYS follow up in a timely manor and love their students as they were there own! Outstanding level of integrity and very strong communication skills! This is diffidently an outstanding place for any child to attend! BRAVO ! Its great to be a Bulldog! Best five years my children could ever have! The teachers put fourth SO much effort you would think its ASU ! OUTSTANDING school !

Mrs Marshall had both of my sons. She is strict , sweet and highly intelligent. There no lack of discipline in her class and I love the way she runs the show! Many students in her class have went to our annual " Battle of the Books " program and went on to place second and then first place for the whole district. She sets the stage for teaching! Her communication with parents is impeccable! What an honor for Skyline to have such a caring, educated individual within there reach! We are a divorced family. She always made sure we had communication with BOTH parents . All documents that ever needed to be signed we each had a copy. She is an AMAZING listener! OUTSTANDING! Way to go Mrs Marshall . Can't say enough about this teacher!
Skyline promotes PBIS at our school. The administration needs to work on discipline issues in the upper grades so that other students aren't affected by so much disruption to their educational process.
The school struggles with a lot of discipline issues that continue to go unresolved by administrators. The school continues to push changes without adequate support for the teachers involved. Certain grade levels have had to wait too long for an extra teacher to be hired by the district when class sizes were out of control.
