The students here are not very good. They all think they are better than everyone else because they go here. All they care about are sports. We will recruit good players from nearby schools just for their sports abilities. Then when we win against a school 3x smaller we think it's a big achievement. Also another thing is we like to cheat at sports for some reason. At tournaments we will get officials that will help us win the tough games. If I was a parent I would not recommend Skyline High.

I have 3 children, my oldest graduated from Buffalo and this year I pulled my two youngest from there and put them in Skyline. My high schooler went from making D's and F's to making A's and B's. The teachers and administration really care for there kids, they focus more on the students than where they stand in the political world. Proof is in the grade card.

We are parents to many past and present Skyline students. Skyline teachers and staff have consistently provided us excellent communication and cooperation.

I went to Skyline from Kindergarten through 12 grade and I thought it was a good school. Now that my daughter has started school I believe that it is even better now than before. They now have a preschool which is awesome. They do a lot more things than they used to.

This school isn't very impressing, the halls are often dirty, the food so-so, and I find the teachings absolutely awful. I don't understand why any parent would send their child to Skyline, the school is a complete waste of government money. I will admit that the sports are pretty nice.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
