Just enrolled my 3rd grader at this school last Nov. when we moved here. I LOVE it! and he loves it too. His teacher worked closely with us to get his academics on track after he was diagnosed and treated for ADHD. She was always willing to communicate and show us how much his education and well-being is her top priority. His teacher got to move up with her students from last year if the student chose to attend her class. All of her students moved up with her to 3rd grade. Everyone I've encountered at the school is positive and welcoming, including the office and lunch time staff. I feel like they all try to work with parents and students to get the kids' education where it needs to be, instead of just telling parents what needs to happen and what problems the child has. They have nice playgrounds, an outdoor eating area if you'd like to have lunch alone with your child and recently painted a beautiful mural of our local beach on an exterior wall. Safety is a high priority as they have safety patrol students help children exit the cars in the mornings along with adult supervision. I would highly recommend this school!

As a STUDENT who went here this school is definetly better than a 6. The teachers care about teaching you all subjects no matter what class you're in. The traditions are like no other, field day, dads movie night and all the caring staff, Dr.best. Keep it up.

After a horrible kindergarten year at Hancock Elementary, my son was transferred to Skyline. I must say, I'm so glad he started here, I saw the great progress, his teacher was so caring and my son loved her so much. The difference was so amazing, I was really happy. His teacher showed how much she wanted to deal with my son, not like in Hancock where they just passed the buck. Also, I had lunch and after school care issues and the principal was so understanding and he resolved the issues asap. I give this school a 10.

My child has attended this school for 3 years now, I will tell you if your child needs any kind of attention at all in their schooling this is NOT the school for you. In my 3 years I have had 1 teacher that went out of their way to help my child. The staff is more about gossiping in the office, hallways anywhere they can... If you stand there long enough you will see what I am saying. Avoid Skyline and find a school that is best for your child because I promise this isnt it. A VERY unhappy parent

My son started in the 5th grade after I withdrew him from Cape Coral Charter school which he had nothing good to say. Now that he is skyline he has nothing bad to say. The teachers here are dedicated and caring. My son started in the middle of the school year and when he started he felt like he is there forever. He has been getting good grades and his attitude towards school is wonderful. Thank you so much skyline!!

My son started the prek speech/communication class this year when he turned 3. His teacher is amazing and I can't believe the progress he has made since he started. We love it.

My son was experiencing some personal issues that were affecting his academic success. The assistant principal was so kind and understanding. He encouraged my son to visit him whenever he needed a safe place. He also provided me information on local family counselors that could provide coping strategies for the family. Thank you Skyline.

I am so pleased with this school. The principal Mr. Vilardi came out to meet my children and I when we arrived. The warm friendly environment made me feel right at home, and I knew immediately that my children would be safe here.

Mrs. Seaman is in charge of the clinic at Skyline. I have been so happy with her care and concern with sick and hurt students that go to her during the school day. Whenever my son is not feeling well, I know that she will take the time to make sure he is okay to return to class or will call me if needed. Her consistent care for those children who are most vulnerable is amazing! Thank you, Mrs. Seaman!!

The teachers at Skyline are all very devoted and caring. My daughter graduated from Skyline last year and the experience was a positive one. While all schools are mandated to follow testing proceedures Skyline encourages students in a positive way with emphasis on good behavior and work ethic.

My son has been in Skyline since Kindergarten, he is going into 5th grade. His teachers have been great every year. I always request a conference at the beginning of the school year to find out what will be expected of him and the teachers have always appreciated it. I also check parentlink to see how he is doing in each class. If his grades are slipping I can email or call his teacher to find out how to help. Teachers at Skyline care about their students. I feel my son will be well prepared for middle school. I also think Mr. Valardi is a great principal and is making a difference at Skyline.

I think that even though you do have to stand and wait at the front office for attention of any kind, for what feels like forever, the school is awesome. The office staff always seem to have better things to do than help you. The teaching and helping teachers are awesome they always have helpful things to say and go above what you would expect. I love the school my two girls love it there. I have a 2nd grader and a 5th grader. My 5th grader will miss her old school greatly.

The school is great but the Office Personnel is very rude.. they never greet people with a smile, this can potentially deter people from sending there child to that school, since the office personnel gives the first impression. but other than that the school is super good, replace the office personnel and it would be excellent.

My child attends Skyline in the fourth grade. My son, now in 7th, attended Skyline for all of his elementary school years. The staff and teachers are and have always been very friendly, supportive and caring of my children. I am now a teacher at the school and have more knowledge now about what makes a great school--great staff and wonderful school leadership! We have both at Skyline. I wouldn't send my child anywhere else.

My child is a Kindergartener at Skyline. I was concerned about him starting in such a huge school and one with such varied socio-economic background. While you can't shelter your child from the world, you always want your child to be surrounded by good influences. I have been very happy with my son's teacher, Mrs. Law. She is wonderful, patient, caring, consistent, has developmentally appropriate standards for her students and has been wonderful to work with to help my son reach his full potential. I do wish the parents of the school would be more involved - I don't know what else the school staff can do to achieve this. We are very happy with our choice to send our son to Skyline Elementary!

Honestly for me this is one of the best school that my daughters are attended. Starting with the way that they recieve the kids in the morning and the way that they come home telling how good is the school for them. The secretaries in the office are really nice and friendly. The teachers Ms. Delford and Ms. Tolbie recieve my girls in their first they of school with a really positive and charmin welcome. Keep doing a great job!

The teachers at Skyline are so caring and dedicated. I have 2 children at Skyline- one is ESE and the other is gifted. The teachers work so well with my child in the ESE program. They are sensitive to his needs but challenge him as well. The gifted program is weak, but at least they level for reading so my child is in a high reading group.

My children attended skyline for Pre-K classes and the teachers were really great, however when my child was in first grade, i found that the kids are very pressured into learning so much at such a young age, they are doing way too much advanced math and reading. My child was going to be retained if it wasn't for my insistence on passing her to the next grade, as a parent you always have to look out for your children, and holding a child back in kindergarten is not the best thing for any child. we now have a tutor that can help my child 2x a week, this is one of things that will help her do better since the learning pressure is so great. Overall the speech pathologist and some of the staff is great, my kids have learned alot and are alot more outgoing.

I have just moved to Cape Coral from Naples. Skyline is a wonderful school but, I feel there is not enough WELCOME, FRIENDLINESS from the staff there. My daughter is in first grader at skyline with inclusion.(Which means she has special needs in writing and math) The staff does not care that parents just drop there kids off in unauthorized areas. So, over all I feel Skyline is a fine school but, could work on it's people skills and let more of the parents get involved on a daily basis.

I am the mom of twin 4 (almost 5) year old boys, one of which has Down Syndrome. He has been attending Skyline for the past 2 years and our experience there has been phenomenal. With the help of his awesome teacher, extremely positive,enthusiastic aids & knowledgable therapists he has developed mentally as well as physically by leaps and bounds. The entire staff makes this school a great environment to be in. They should be very proud to be an A rated school. Because the difference they have made in my childs life, I believe thy should receive an A+

I am very unhappy with several things at skyline. My daughter has attended for k-3 presently 3rd.I have found that they have pushed ar and f- cat so far that the kids lose intrest and I know many now hate to read.I found that all is well. I guess if your child does not require any thing in addition to what is going on at that moment.When my daughter fell a little behind (partially due to cooperative learning,small groups)I asked to get a set of books after 6 weeks they finally gave me reading book and said I would have to buy the others to help her.I think that there has been very little effort by the school, at all levels. To help kailey. I get the feeling they think if it does not come easy you should be held back and do it again.I will be looking for better!

I think that there are too many students in this school for teachers to handle at least for the second grade. I also think that there is not enough parent involvement in this school. I find that you are informed about a scholastic problem after a long period of time.

Skyline is a good school for students who excell in reading and or math. Their teachers are caring and have great programs in place to accomidate children with excellerated abilities. The office staff is friendly and attentive. The only downfall I have run into thus far is their lack of ability to accomidate 'special needs' children above the Pre-K level. They don't offer the programs that other schools in this district do. Their Pre-K VE department is wonderful and well equipt, they are caring and great to work with. The mainstream teachers (I've experienced up through grade two) have been easy to work with and willing to go the extra step to give children the best possible experience. School wide programs celebrate good behavior as well as good grades, and encourage parent participation. Our family's overall dealings with Skyline Elementry have been positive ones.
