21 Parent Reviews for Skyview Middle School

This schools grading system is completely messed up. Most classes only add up to a couple hundred points for the whole quarter (leaving very little room for the students to not be perfect all the time), and the weighting is set by the teacher (so they can make tests 50% of the grade if they want). Don't ...  Read more

I first reviewed this school as 4*'s a year ago. I really jumped the gun on this one. After another miserable year of experience I have absolutely changed my mind. I have watched kids at this school loose interest in trying and the test scores show exactly what I am talking about. I believe there ...  Read more

Although, myriads of parents hypothesize that Sky View Middle School has a great behavior, I disagree. There are a tons of reasons First of all, the students use very inappropriate language, students are rude, disrespectful, don`t follow district rules and behavior, Secondly multitudinous of staff/bus ...  Read more

I think Skyview MS offers the kids a pretty good education. As a parent of a 6th grader, I find the the students can get a little overwhelmed at first. There is alot of stuff being crammed their way. This is where parents have an opportunity to step up for their kids and help them out. The school ...  Read more

My 8th grader switched to Skyview Middle School after a semester at Falcon Virtual Academy. The change was due to the fact that I was unable to continue homeschooling. My child was excelling at FVA and made the honor roll every quarter at his previous schools. I was shocked to find out after one quarter ...  Read more

We currently serve about 14,000 students. This is perhaps the first year that our overall student population has ...  Read more

Two of my sons have attended this school. My older son had to fight a bully in the bathroom on the first day of 6th grade. He had no other problems with bullying after that. His grades were a lot lower than in elementary school, but we receive no communication until it's too late to fix them. My ...  Read more

This is my son's first year in middle school so I don't have another school to judge it against. There are teachers who really care and communicate when there are issues. I like that! However, there are plenty who will treat your child like a number and not communicate until there is a problem. I'm not ...  Read more

Communication with teachers is non-existent. They have a policy of NOT contacting parents unless a student receives a D or an F on their final grade for each quarter. THIS IS INSANE!!! If they dip that low and it gets documented on their report card, it's too late. Good luck with the teachers. They ...  Read more

While this school is challenging, there is only sporadic communication. There are a few teachers who actually care and contact parents, but the rest leave it up to you to figure out what your child is doing in their class. If you can't afford year round volleyball and basketball club teams for your ...  Read more
