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

Strong ethic of taking care of each other is projected from the very top of the school and supported by students. This is a strength of the Issaquah School District overall.

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.

The Principal has been instrumental in building on the best Skyline traditions and extending the spirit of excellence throughout the school. Both academic and extracurricular achievements are celebrated.

Amount of homework: Just right

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.

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.

Mr. Buker has been a good resource for my son and a good example, making sure he has the time to focus on school during sports.

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

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