Skyview High School5

For all you people who are "hating" on Skyview because of how the school functions because of the cliques and the racism, you all must be living in a fairytale world because clearly you live in a utopian society. Every school, elementary to colleges is not perfect. You will find examples of this everywhere, in movies, literature, songs, etc. If your child/you can not handle this I suggest homeschooling. As for the education I believe it is very adequate. From an upper to "average" income area, Skyview has a wide range of opportunities to offer your child. The SMT program is widely recognized by colleges and the sports programs are wonderful and take home lots of medals. As a student going to Skyview I am proud to represent my school and I hope that you will give us a chance

Don't send your kids to Skyview unless they thrive in an atmosphere of overcrowded hallways, over-burdened teachers, and large classrooms where students get very little personal attention from teachers. My daughter will have attended all 4 years of high school here. The school refuses to put a cap on enrollment and there are major over-crowding issues. If I had it to do over, I would send my daughter to River. Teachers and advisors are massively over-burdened and you'll get very little feedback from them. Same goes for your student. Just a warning.

The cliques at Skyview are an important part of the education. Even the staff, from principals and VPs to teachers and band-aides support the dominant clique. If you happen to fit in every way, you'll thrive. Learn to fit in and bow to the powerful. Who cares about a kid who is different in some way? I'd give a more direct scathing review, but a kid is still there, eagerly awaiting a change.

Skyview is an awesome school. Yes, it lacks diversity, and it may be starting to believe it's own hype that it is a "rich kids" school, but at the heart it is a great middle class school with a ton of tolerance. It can't help being mostly white. It is what it is. I like that it is has student leadership in the area of gay representation and my kid (who is not white) feels safe and appreciated there. If they stay true to their educational roots and not let xtra carriculars get in the way- they will remain the best High School in town.

Honestly, I hate Skyview. They are all clique-ish and its a school full of barbies and kens. The school's money is focused on sports and none of it really goes to anything that contributes to education. Most of the kids at the school are racist and wealthy and look down on people that aren't at the same level as them. The administrators don't inforce the rules of the dress code. All the boys have pants that hang below their bottoms and the girls wear tops that revel it all (including skirts and shorts). I can't wait to get out of the school because it is so fake and a joke. Do yourself / your kid a favor and pick a different school!

personally, i love this school. it has tons of extra curricular activities, and good teachers. Although, it's hard to focus sometimes because of the no-walls situation. Other than that it's good!

the curriculum is very basic and the school focuses mostly on sports. If you pursue sports, its a great school to attend. If you want a good highschool education, i really do not recommend it.

i am currently a Freshman, and i love it at Skyview. i really like the no-walls thing, even though a lot of people dont. i think the teachers are great, but some students arent as nice as they should be. i'm asian, and i've gotten a little bit of racism, but overall, it's pretty good.

I am now on my third son graduating from this school. I have to admit, I have had a few problems with a couple of teachers and inappropriate language topics as well as the last counselor almost costing our son his graduation day, but after all is said and done, I love the student body that attend here which says a lot about the parents who raise them. I still feel and always will that this is a truly inspiring school who does seem to care about what parents think and if students make it to the end.

It's a nice school. Color war is a blast, and they try for fun things in between. I wouldn't go crazy over it. It's a typical American High School. But aside from that, people are nice nad teachers are friendly. The having no walls factor really SUCKS though. But it's great.

My daughter has attended Skyview Highschool for two years. She is currently in her Sophomore year and is taking pre AP courses to prep her for AP classes during her Junior / Senior years. Skyview has an excellent curriculum and the atmosphere/culture of the students is among the best I've ever dreamed to have my children be a part of. Unfortunately we are moving this summer out of state to California. My biggest fear is that my daughter won't have the supreme support there as she has at Skyview.

I am currently a freshmen at skyview high school. I just moved here from Hawaii not too long ago. In my opinion, its actually a lot better than i thought it would be. They have lots of extra curriculars and many unique classes. Everything about this school is awesome. It may have a lack of diversity but being of pacific islander wthnicity i have experienced very little racism. The only thing I don't like about the school is the open walls. In some occassions it helps cuz the classes are closer but most times the noises from other classrooms is distracting. Other than that this school overall is excellent. Anyone of any race could come here and be comfortable. As long as you like cool teachers and (overall) a welcoming student body.

Great School! My kids love it there. Storm just got a new principal and shes not as enthusiastic as Mr. Little but I'm sure she'll warm up to the Storms spirit. Teachers are really good but some aren't as helpful as they should be. Go Storm!

This has been a great school for our family. Both our kids attend Skyview, and they have had nothing but positive experiences! Lots of activites, good classes, and lots of homework(!), but it's all good. There is a lot of school spirit that cuts across cliques, ecomonic, and race lines. A very accepting and gracious student body!

My son just finished his freshman year at this amazing school. The SMT magnet program is a social and intellectual haven for him! But they also have top-notch academics in other areas, as well as high achieving sports, music, & drama. The kids are among the most active in the community. The teachers seem to genuinely like working there. The choices are just amazing, allowing kids to specialize toward types of careers and take college classes for both HS & college credit. The fabulously equipped fitness center, food court, credit union, & campus store make it feel like a jr college. The senior-freshman mentoring makes sure everyone knows someone they can ask questions of. The only thing a bit lacking is availability of counselors, with just one per grade. Still, parents take their kids from Portland private schools to come to Skyview!
