The school is still very disorganized. The counselors and people behind the desks at the offices are very rude. My child can't even talk to a counselor about personal problems or when she needs help in discussing her education. They aren't there to help the students, they just want there money. I'd say to fire everyone behind the desks and find people who actually care about the students and education for the students.

This school is very disorganized, the staff in the registration desks are extremely rude. If you want to see the effects of a lobotomy on a living being these would be the perfect people to observe. The best way to improve this school, or at least this department would to be to fire everyone behind the desk, and hire some people who care either about the students, or their jobs!

I just graduated from this school. From my perspective is not a very good school. All they care about is tasks and nothing else. I went all four years and I really regret going there( I was accepted to Townview). The quality of teacher at Skyline is terrible, I can only recall about four teacher who actually had a passion for the subject they were teaching. The ' AP classes' at skyline are a joke, most students who take this classes never take the exam and those who do always get ones. The main reason why these students fail the AP exams is because the teachers themselves don't know the material. Overall, I feel like I was cheated out of my education by attending Skyline. So, If you are really serious about your education don't attend Skyline like I deed- not to mention its currently a low performance school.

Hey! Skyline High school is amazing! Students become extremely well rounded but the best part are the clusters. There's so many people there and we're able to interact and learned about the many people around us. In smaller schools, it's harder to find friends and teaches who understand studnets, but at Skyline, there's so many people to hang around with.

I am a former student (class of 04') of Skyline High School. I enjoyed my high school years in this school and have very fond memories of them. I met great people, and several teachers that inspired me and to them I give thanks for their encouragement and sincere heart. I managed to keep a B+ average and made the NHS my senior year. I was in the Computer Cluster, JV soccer team and French club. Overall, my years spent in this school were great! I recommend this school to anyone who wants to try something different. FYI: Skyline was not my homeschool, and my siblings and I all had to apply to get in. I was the 4th in my family to graduate from Skyline. The baby of the family graduates 08'! This is all out of 7 kiddos. What does that tell you?

The best school for students to explore careers and mature in life. Students learn how to be independent and learn social skills; therefore, allowing to feel ready to be out in the 'real world'. I am currently in the advanced social sciences cluster, [ the man & his environment cluster], in which I am being prepared to become an attorney. Skyline is the best place for a student to start living life to its fullest

I love Skyline High School because it is also a career development center. The students at this school are challenged in many different ways. I have maintained the high B honor roll for three years.I am also in the Hospitality Cluster where I have a high paying job at a prestigous downtown hotel at the age of 17. This school has a lot to offer.

Skyline has the best all around program for its students. It is the best school in Dallas ISD. Don't be fooled by its size, the teachers and administration are wonderfully caring and nurturing. My son loves this school and will be a senior in 2008. We feel that he is getting an outstanding academic education while also enjoying a well-rounded extracurricular schedule.

This is my son's first year at Skyline High School. Skyline is an excellent school with a principal, administrators and teachers who seem to really care about the students. My son is very involved athletics. Skyline has excellent football and basketball programs. But if your son is interested in playing baseball, you should consider sending him to another high school as Skyline's baseball program is well below par.

Skyline High School is very different from your averagre school such as Hillcrest, W.T. White and Townview. In this school you will find some of the most bright and intelligent students on the face of this planet. Yes some of the children go there looking for trouble, but with the aid of the new principal Leslie Williams, and the rest of the faculty, Skyline will rise from the ashes....... Yes, Skyline is at a turning point, but the turn must be made with exact precision and tiomming... no time must be wasted. This school is one of the best in Texas and the nation.........

First let me state that I am not a parent, but a former student of Skyline class of 01'. Skyline is not ths school it use to be. Students are not caring about the well being of their education and neither our some of the teachers. The principal needs to go back Carter, because no changes have been made for the well being of the students and faculty. But in all we you do find one of the few teachers that are left at Skyline that care about the students, then you have found one of it's 'Diamonds in the Ruff'

I work at Skyline for 7 years. Skyline has everything a student could ask for. Of course there are teachers that are more dedicated and attentive to their students than others, but that is at any school. This year we have a strong leader that doesn't settle for second best. I feel like students these days don't make it becasue they lack application. Skyline offers tutoring and saturday school also. All around Skyline is the best!!

I am a former student at Skyline. The whole curriculum was great. (I was in the Cluster part.)But honestly, I wouln'dnt send my children there. I would as punishment though! Some of the teachers are more focused on their pay than on the students. And when the test time came around, most of the kids were unprepared!

I am presently in my senior year at Skyline. I can honestly say that these have been the best 4 school years I have had. Due to the large amont of students, it makes the school more of a prepatory for real life. We have people of all ethnicities and races. We have 100s of courses you can take. Last year Skyline was proclaimed a city and might I say it is just like one. We have our own everything. Going to Skyline everyday is like waking up and entering an educational city. I love my school and will forever speak high of it even when I am a long gone alumni!

I believe Skyline is the best School in Dallas. It has structure and it gives children to learn things that they will not get the chance to learn in any othe DISD school. My child was in culinary arts and won competitions. She never would have done that at any other Dallas School.
