    Sky View is awesome and probably one of the best schools I have ever been to.

  • (4 years ago)

    Skyview is an AMAZING school! The kids are great the staff is wonderful and the principal has absolutely no tolerance for bullying. They expect the children that go to school here to be respectful motivated and helpful to others. My son has gone here for 2 years and will be attending his 8th grade year at Skyview also and ANYTIME he has needed any help with school work his teachers have gone above and beyond to help him. As far as homework goes I believe they give exactly the same amount as any middle school does especially in preparing these children for high school. That is just ignorance speaking. My son is a straight A student and he has to work at it and thats how it should be.

    I give this school a thumbs down. My student always comes home with to much homework and says the teacher never explains it. I've personally meet the teachers before and they were nice but I can see how he would not get things. Personally I think if your sending your child to middle school do not pick Sky View.

    Earned Oregon's top rating "Outstanding" on the 2009-10 Oregon Department of Education State School Report Card. Only 37% of Oregon schools earned the same rating statewide.

    I have a child that started Sky View last year and they seem to really care about the children that go to this school they have wonderful teachers and they listen to parents concerns and help out when needed.
