Cant wait to send my kid to this school




- a
It has a great career services center and a fantastic staff. It offers College Corps program for graduating students.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
We have been impressed at the way that teachers at Skyline High School find ways to connect with students. Our son's Freshman year Honors Block teachers use throught-provoking current and historical events to stimulate the Social Studies discussion. They bring in members of Seattle Shakespeare Company for discussion in Language Arts. For Biology, the researcher who teaches the class brings in elements from the University of Washington biology curriculum. These techniques seem to fire the students' imagination.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Depending on the course selections, homework can be demanding. We have found that our child goes through periods of heavy or moderate homework loads. But it seems to be manageable.




- a
Skyline is a very well run high school. Skyline teachers and administrators are a dedicated group of educators. We have found the school to be responsive to our needs as a family that was new to the Issaquah School District. We have found that the teacher support is absolutely there when our child has a question or we need clarification.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
There is a good mix of teachers and many of the teachers are former students who loved their time at the school.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
There is a fair amount of work in many of the classes but it is preparing the kids for the next level.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
My students have learned and are held accountable for their actions and the school has solid policies.



- a
Great school as two of my sons go there and from sports to academics to clubs the school is fantastic. Don't understand the recent change in rating as this school is fantastic and far better than the other high school in town which is why homes in the Skyline boundary are so much in demand and sell for $100-$150k more per home than comparable homes outside the boundary. Truly and exceptional school.
