    My son went here for 7th and 8th grade. We had constant problems with bullying and the administration did nothing to stop it even after we had talked to them multiple times. He hated going to school. The drama program there is mediocre at best. They do have a very good music program. The principal there is awful. She is very condescending towards parents when there is a problem. We moved my son to a different school in the district and is doing fabulous. He enjoys school now.

    My son really likes this school! He has just completed his first Semester. I've heard so many complaints from his friends who go to other surrounding schools and he is so thankful he doesn't have to deal with the excessive bullying the drug influence and obnoxious teachers some of his friends deal with. It's rare to hear of a child actually liking 7th grade...but my son actually does! Even the subs have been great. He feels like he is being sufficiently challenged and the teachers do a good job of teaching the content so it's understood. I appreciate the staff at Skyview as well. They always seem happy and caring. As a parent I'm so thankful for the great experience so far at Skyview!

    If you want your child to attend a good college don't send them to this school. The administration is clueless. Students are allowed to disrupt class activities and nothing is ever done. Teachers are not allowed to teach accurate facts for example a teacher was reported to the principal for saying BC means Before Christ. This teacher was accused of being a witch. That is the kind of thing that is allowed to happen at this school. If you are able to send your child to another school please make the effort. Otherwise they will be completely unready for higher education.

    I have one daughter just finishing with Skyview after 3 years and another about to start there. I have been quite pleased with her grades and her involvement in both band and drama. I was rather surprised to see that the previous poster said to stay away from these programs. The music program is bursting at the seams and should really have a second teach involved with the band/orchestra. This school has advanced classes in many subjects. Most teachers are communicative when a parent asks to be involved. The current principal does not allow student involved fund raisers that allow the kids to handle money. This is really really strange and I find it to be counter productive. Even my elementary child is allow to handle money in her fundraisers. I will note that the principal was willing to work with the music boosters to create a fund raiser that fit into her constraints and quite frankly it was an overwhelming hit. I do it again.

    My child went to Skyview for three years. While their scores are high the teachers can be very "clickish" and if they don't like the parent the child's grades will suffer. My child had this happen. The new principal is a train wreck she is more concerned with her wardrobe then governing a school. They had an interim principal who was outstanding but the replacement is going to do nothing but bring the school down. There are several good teachers but their hands are being tied by the leadership team. Stay away from Band and Drama!! Teachers are clueless.

    My daughter is an 8th-grader at Skyview Junior High and she loves it. I am particularly happy about the "Junior High Challenge Program" implemented through out the Northshore School District since 2011-2012 school year. She is able to take several 9th-grade level classes and is doing very well. The couselors and teachers are all very friendly and helpful also.

    We are new to Skyview community and so far very pleased! We bought a house nearby because of its proximity to Skyview. Love the breakfast option and so does my seventh grade son. We have a bit of getting acquainted to do but that will come.

    We love this school! My daughter just finished the 7th grade and it was her first year there. We have had to move every year for many years now so we have places to compare it to and by far this was the best. Most of the teachers are very nice caring people who work with you for anything you need (only one teacher I was not happy with but she was only there for one class a day). Administration is very approachable. Good quality kids. HIGHLY recommend!

    We are new to the area this year. I was worried how my child would adjust. Fortunately my child easily made friends and is very happy. Teachers are very supportive too. We are very happy with our choice.

    Hi i am the asb president for skyview junior high. Recently the school recieved te wasl test scores from the previous year and our school did very well. In the area we have about 5-6 developments that are very nice houses and the people are great. But the only down side is that students like i who only live one mile from the school are being transfered to another nearby school that isnt so nearby. With this sudden fluxuation in students i and the administration are in charge of about 1000 kids. So overall i highly recommend who lives in the area or plans to move here to please attend this school we have the best music program in the district including a pep band a steller football team a very high standard soccer team and a very open and encouraging atmoshere. -Colin carter asb president for the school year of 2008-2009

    I have came out of Skyview and can only say positive things about this junior high school. I grew so much academically socially as a student and as a person. The teachers are excellent and really care about what they do. I visit my past teachers and they all remember my name and a great to be around. The academic and music program were great and so was the athletic program. As a former student I could not have asked for more. I would indefinitely recommend this school.

    Ninth grade's quality of education has been excellent. Music art sports and other extracurricular activities are there for the picking. I specially like the ambience of the school and the security in place.
