Skyview High School opened in 2009 for students in 9th through 12th grades as a public charter school. The school provides students with a high quality education that allows them to earn college credits via classes at Pima Community College. The school offers a variety of electives including auto mechanics, video production, marketing, and fashion & design, to name a few. The school also offers advanced photography, advanced art, accelerated learning, as well as extra curricular sports and student clubs. A few choices students can choose include drawing, photography, film production, computer arts, physical education classes, basketball, cheerleading, debate, multimedia, science & technology, yearbook, and student government.
Parents like the way the school is safe, nurturing, and strict all at the same time. The curriculum in challenging and the courses are advanced. A few parents expressed how their children did so much better after being enrolled in Skyview even though they were behind in credits in tradition school. Parents are glad the school is in their community and providing their children with the great opportunities of earning college credits while obtaining their high school diploma. The school holds classes four days a week with Fridays being for students that need extra help.
The AIMS series of exams do not very good. The percentage of students that passed the exams was below state averages in all courses. Reading was only a bit below but math was nearly 30%.
Before enrolling your child, it would be best to check out the curriculum and learn why students are not passing the required exam in order to graduate from high school. With only around 30% of 10th graders passing the exam, I would be a bit worried about enrolling my child in the school.
