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.
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.
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.
