Not too shabby. Good stem program. I've had a good three years here and it doesn't even compare to my previous high school which was a dump

i am a student and i think the teachers are great and especially Mr. Tom Stumpf, the principal. Unlike the average principal, Mr. Stumpf gets to know each and every student. Academically, we do get a challenge and the teachers make sure we understand the subject

This school does an excellent job. It is safe and the administration has always treated us well. Like every school, some teachers are better than others.

This last semester, our son is a sophomore at Skyline. Never had any homework. Got all As except for one B. I'm sure the students are elated that they can get easy grades with no work outside of class. But shame on the teachers for making their classes 'cruise control'. Some of the teachers are very nice and engaged with their students, but they need to add a little challenge to their classes.

Skyline seems to wallow in low expectations from the students, which filters down from the administration. Some teachers have proven to be passionate and involved with their students, while others are coasting or just plain apathetic. On the way home, when driving by the school, the grounds are frequently covered in litter from lunch. Administration appears incompetent.

I think that Skyline is a good school to go to if you want to have a good High School expirence. Its fun and relaxed but we still learn and do a good job.

Parents need to stop complaining about this school. Most all the teachers are awesome and I am getting a good education. The parents that are giving this school a bad review are parents that are not involved. Many great students have passed through these halls. And parents need to spend a day here to know what really goes on. They only pay attention to the bad things when there is a lot of good thing too.

Skyline High is a fantastic school. With fabulous teachers, and fun students. I wouldn't rely on CSAP scores, to tell you whether or not to send your child here.

My daughter has been a student at Skyline for 3 years now. She has been extremely well taught by all her teachers. I agree with another parent about not believing the CSAP scores. Great teachers. Great Music Program. Good Overall Experience. B.Purdes

Very mediocre school. Low expectations, lack of leadership, no interest in helping athletic programs, or the reputation of the school in the community. A diverse school, but that is used as a reason to not expect much from the kids or the staff.

The school is overcrowded and there dosen't seem to be enough staff to keep up with the number of students. However, the teachers care and with a little effort from you will keep informed of your teenagers progress.

skyline is a school full of great teachers led by horrible addministrators. The way the princles of this school handle disiplinary issues is out of this world. Theres consistant scare tactics and suspension threats, in order to get information out of students is uncalled for. But dont get me wrong teaching staff is great and makes school an enjoyable experience. But overall i'd give Skyline High a 3 out of 5 due to the administration

I have been completely disappointed in Skyline High School. The quality of teachers, information given to parents, students and peers, policy and overall atmosphere is terrible. I'm on this website, looking for another school for my daughter.

Skyline Highschool is one of the greatest schools that a child could ever attend. With faculty that knows how to interact with all different students, Skyline has once agian proved itself within the school district. Although at times, 'rough', the lessons learned can be applied to the world. It is simply an amazing school to get some cultural background and grow up to be a well rounded person.

My children went to this school. And I give it a neutral rating.

One of Skyline's greatest strengths is the diversity of its student population. This, coupled with dedicated and excellent teachers in the AP-tracks, has provided our two daughters with an excellent education and a realistic preparation for the rest of the world. Particularly noteworthy teachers in the following areas: Forensics; Chemistry; AP-History; AP-Government; AP-English; IMP Math; Economics; Mock Trial; Vocal Music; Drama.

This high school is the best kept secret in the State of Colorado. Excellence and respect are high priorities. Both of my daughters (one is a senior, the other is at CU in Boulder) have had good experiences here. The CSAP scores do not tell the whole story. The teachers are very good, involved, and well trained from good schools. Neither of our daughters has had a 'bad' teacher. Both of our daughters started their high school years here at Skyline.

I would caution parents moving to this area not to rely on CSAP scores only to compare schools. My experience would suggest they depend more on the student population than the quality of the school or it's teaching staff. My daughter is a junior at Skyline, and I have encountered very few teachers who were not extremely involved and dedicated. Based on what I've seen of my daughter's homework vs her friends' at other area schools, the AP (advanced placement) classes are as rigorous as any of the AP or IB programs in the area. Also, the music program consistently stands out in the district.
