Skyline District 5 is a charter school for students in 5th through 8th grades that opened in 2008. The school offers a college prep standards based curriculum. The difference between this school and a traditional school is that the school integrates athletics and arts with the curriculum. The school is incorporated with the Skyline School system that implements the same curriculum throughout the system. The curriculum is updating often and is developed by teachers via an Action Research, Best Practices, and Professional Learning Communities that provides alignment for grade and content across all grades in the system. The best part is that even though the curriculum is aligned it is flexible enough to ensure that all students receive the best education that meets the needs of each student.
The way in which arts is integrated into the curriculum is via comprehensive performance and visual arts. Students learn while being guided through theater, dance, music, dimension art, multiple medium art, graphics, photography, and more.
Parents enjoy seeing their children grow and learn in a fun and nurturing environment with small classes and high qualified teachers that truly care about their students. Students enjoy learning and experiencing all the activities found at the school.
The downside of the school is the percentage of students that passed the AIMS series of exams. The percentage of students that passed the exams was below state average in every core subject, which includes math, science, reading, and writing.
It would be in your best interest to learn more about the curriculum and ask questions regarding the low test scores before enrolling your child in the school. No parent expressed any concern with the test scores however, in order for students to graduate high school; this test must be passed in 10th grade. It is best if a school is meeting state standards with the majority of their students if the school is to be successful in providing the tools necessary for students to succeed.
