Overall, I think Skyline Elementary is a good school. The teachers we've had the past 3 years have been great. Any issue we may have is resolved quickly. Good communication from teachers. I only wish there were a gifted program in the school district for the kids who need more of a challenge. For those people giving bad ratings, as a parent part of the responsibility falls on me to make sure my child is learning and being challenged daily. Can't blame the schools for anything if I'm not doing my part. Stillwater schools have been doing great. Check their report card http://afreportcards.ok.gov/Files/ReportCards2013/201360I016120.pdf
Staff members went out of their way to make my daughter feel uncomfortable about not being from a christian home. Tried addressing my concerns with the Principal and she didn't seem to care at all, and the situation actually got worse after that point. We spent two years at this school and while there are a few good teachers mixed in, my kids will never go here again.
I moved here because Skyline was such a pretty school. Don't make my mistake. This school has a nightmarish car line. What is suppose to be one drop off lane quickly turns into three lanes of parked cars. It also has one continuous lane of traffic, bringing it to four lanes of traffic. Also, there are parents and children walking right in the middle of it. There is one outstanding man that helps the children in the cross walk. His job is to stop the traffic to protect the children walking. His job is not to direct traffic. So if you cant arrive early, you will be stranded about two blocks away waiting behind cars that do as they please. I am most unhappy with the math program. Stillwater Public Schools use Terc Math. If you are unfamiliar with this type of math, search on youtube for math an inconvenient truth. If you can, send your children to another city altogether. Not every school district in Oklahoma uses this kind of math. I have heard good things about Perkins School District. I was also pleased with Cushing Public School. If I would have known last year what I know now, I would have never moved to Stillwater.
