I have been a student at Skyview Middle School for three years. I just finished my eighth grade year and I am VERY happy about that. I didn't like this school for many reasons. Skyview says that they are a very anti-bully school but, that is all that happens. There is an enormous amount of cliques in that school. If you aren't in a "popular' clique then you get treated like garbage. Also, if you have a student with special needs, such as autism, DO NOT sent your student here. The students and some of the staff make fun of them. They can be very rude to the special needs students. They see them as someone easy to make fun of. Some of the teachers I really loved and that is why I gave two stars but, there are some teachers that I didn't like at all. For example, one teacher would always yell at us when they were having a bad day. You shouldn't take your anger out on students. This teacher is not fit to be a teacher. There has been numerous cases where students have gone to the vice principal to talk to them about this teacher and the vice principal did nothing. Lastly, I don't believe I got a real education out of my three years. I really didn't learn much. I never felt like the students nor the staff were ever really serious about learning. So if you want you student to learn something in middle school and have great teachers that encourage them and you want them to go to an anti-bully school, then DO NOT send them to Skyview Middle School!

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
May 31, 2015
They rarely return communications. Teachers are condescending and rude. They assign inappropriate assignments. Several have assigned projects that endanger the safety of students.

Amount of homework: Not enough
May 31, 2015
My child rarely has homework. In addition the common core math needs to be discontinued. 2+2=4. Period. In the work industry common core will slow students down. They should not need to do twenty steps to get the simple answer of 4. Nor should our students be bringing home homework that parents cannot help with. By not providing homework our students loose practice in time management skills.

Staff is unhelpfull and rude. Teachers are allow to instill unethical practices and they have favorites among students. If you complain then your student suffers.

This school has two tracks, the students who are valued, praised, and taught that they are better than the rest and those who are not in the AP track. There are many reasons why a student is not in AP, and none of those reasons are because they are "less than" anyone else. The teachers and administration all participate in this bullying, and it is not a healthy place for either track of students,

So far the school has been pretty good for my child. Skyview was recommended to me by a former teacher who said it was the best public middle school in Pueblo, and it seems to be well regarded. The facilities are lovely; very spacious and modern. We don't seem to have a lot of conferences with teachers and staff but so far everything seems fine.

My daughter is in 6th grade and always has great things to say about each of her teachers and how wonderful her school is. However she does have one teacher specifically that inspires her to learn. A special thank you to all teachers because it takes a special individual to teach. An extra special thanks to Mr Hogan for enlightening my daughter in the subject of math. Not only does she mention how amazing the teacher is and how easy and fun she makes math clas, she also talks about different math equations and demonstrates how well she understands each lesson with excitement. Thank you!!!

Im not happy with the school. My problem is more with teachers. My child's 8th grade math teacher is never willing to help or explain more on a question my child my have. Its been a repetitive problem. My other child has had problems with the band teacher and P.E teacher. when you talk to the teacher they are very disrespectful and not willing to help work with the parents or child. I do like the VP and front desk..they are helpful. Also the Car Loop needs to be managed better...

I am a teacher at Skyview Middle School and, naturally, will stick up for our school at all costs. Many of us spend countless hours helping students with all kinds of things, not just academic-based things. We stay after school to help tutor (at no charge), sometimes helping kids with subjects other than what we teach. I could complain about lack of funding and I could go on and on about being overworked and underpaid, but the truth is, I LOVE my job and I LOVE these kids. Kids are what keep me coming back, day after day. I can't think of another school I would rather be at than Skyview Middle. Like anything else in life, you get out of things exactly what you put in. If you give no effort in helping your child obtain a quality education, then you shouldn't complain. The grass is not always greener on the other side!!!!

I give Sky View a big thumbs down due to all the rude comments and language my daughter has told me about. moving to Pwms was a good move now that they have the IB program that Sky View does NOT have and should be recommended for any child.

Overall this is a good school. Like most schools, they are dealing with a funding shortfall. District 70 doesn't provide enough resources to teach the kids. The school has shifted teachers and classes again for the second year to deal with the funding and FOUR day school week. The administration is certainly playing a balancing act to hold it together. This year, they finally added advanced courses in science and language arts to add to the advanced math taught for a few years. The homework is bit excessive, but it will prepare the kids for high school AP classes. The teacher quality is a 9 out of 10, but they are really overworked and you have to stay involved in your own students work. The band program is really lacking, but the new music teacher is trying rebuild with no funding. There has only been one teacher (math) in the three years my child has been going to Skyview that has lost her heart to teach. She was very impatient, rigid and not very approachable even as a parent. The principal runs a tight ship and he demands respect from the students. The Great Schools score of 6 doesn't represent the good quality education and positive learning environment at Skyview.

I find it very interesting to see a few parents venting their displeasure for this wonderful school. I guess anytime people feel strong emotional bonds with their families, especially their kids, they act irrationally when it comes to working out the problems they have in the school environment. It is soooo much easier to blame the school for their own inadequecies than it is to point fingers at their own shortcomings. What a shame that people have to sully this schools reputation by badmouthing it here. As a former student, I can most assuredly tell you that there are high expectations for all students both academically and socially. At no time was my family ever solicited for 'pay for grades' fees for extra credit. That is ludacris and the parent who said the teachers don't know how to teach...did you look at how high the test scores are at this school?

I attended Skyview the first two years it was open and had a great experience. I formed great bonds with a handful of the teachers. It baffles me that some parents claim that these teachers don't know what they're doing and/or treat students from lower classes differently. I by no means come from a wealthy family but my parents have always pushed me to be the best student. Former teachers have also contributed to my educational achievements- Skyview teachers included. I feel that their advanced classes were also very adequate. I am now in my junior year at Regis University in Denver. I credit these teachers as well as those PWHS for my academic achievements. I really do not have any bad things to say about the school. My younger brother attends Skyview and I expect him to continue to excel academically.

My son and step daughter attend this school. Now they are both on different ends of the academic spectrum. My son has always been a straight A student, involved in peer mentoring, student council, and Gifted and Talented programs for the last four years, my step daughter has always struggled in school. I do not have many nice things to say about this school. My straight A son has struggled since attending, the teachers do not help in any transitions and have a no mercy attitude. Prob would have had more lee way in the military. He has now becomed depressed, and stressed out all of the time, he has panic attacks (that he has to see a doctor about) and finds no joy in learning anymore. I tried talking about my concerns with both the teachers dean of students and nothing! I am looking at alternate ideas for him

Sky View Middle School is an excellent school and a great choice to send your child or children too. The teachers are all very supportive and the kids are also very nice.

You'd better hope you're rich if you want your child to get a good grade. Last year, on more than one occasion, they offered extra credit to children who could pay class fees, etc by an early date. Well that's nice unless you're a low income family. :( I pulled my daughter out of that school and will NEVER send her back.

As a former student of Skyview Middle School, I would like to say that upon my 8th grade graduation, i felt educated and fully prepared to start my high school career.My Sports were fun as well. Greg bradfield, doug bonicelli, trent kropf, leonard lopez,elise faulkner, patrick McAuliffe, and matt sherman were some of the best coaches and 'life teachers' i know. They were also my friends.Skyview is good for the brain, and for the soul.

Good leadership. With every school you will find great teachers mixed with mediocre. Needs more adv. courses and a better evaluation system for G&T. One of the best in Pueblo West, Connect would still be a favorite, hands down, for all Middle schools in Pueblo.

My grandson goes to this school and the teachers were wonderful in trying to help me help him. I really appreciated it because trying to raise kids at this age you forget what you did in school and they are so much further ahead than we were. He is at the age that we can't help him much except incourage him to do his best. Thank you
