  • Skyview High School is a school for students to attend who are self-accountable. People who have written about this school have or are students who try to get around the rules. They push the staff to see how to skip class and not be cared about, they lie to their parents saying there were in class. I attended this school for four years and got a better education here than I ever would have at Nampa High School.

    Students are counted as absent if there are not in class on time before the teacher submits their attendence to the online reporting system. If the student is late, they will be counted as absent until the teacher goes back and changes that they were tardy, otherwise, their absense gets reported to the office, which is where parents are called. As for skipping school, of course students can get away with skipping.

    Staff and security do not have every student's schedule and name memorized. After dealing with 1500 students a day, they have to start believing students are telling the truth otherwise they (and their ignorant parents) will complain to the school that that staff was "picking" on them for not believing them. Students who complain about the staff "not caring about them" have their own issues at home and are doing whatever they can possibly do to prove in their own minds that "no one cares about them." The fact of the matter is, these staff do care about these students, but they are allowing the students some self accountability rather than treating the school like a prison or a South Central LA school where they don't believe any of the students.

    Research shows that once students are in high school, many of them have already made up their minds of where they are going with their life after high school and the type of person/student they will be. Parents need to stop blaming good schools like Skyview for their children's behavior, rather, they should take a step back and look at themselves and how they have raised their child.

    SKYVIEW IS A GREAT SCHOOL, PROBABLY THE BEST ONE IN NAMPA, TO SEND YOUR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT TO.

  • I have been attending Skyview since 2004 and I have only seen the school go down hill since my freshman year. I am currently a senior and this new school year has had even more changes.
    First of all it is not very difficult for students to skip class because they have little to no attention paid towards them by security or teachers. For example students who want to skip class most often use the excuse of having an open period which allows them to be able to sit in the cafeteria with friends and just talk the whole time instead of attending class. Most teachers and security guards know that these students have class but would rather let them get away with skipping instead of confronting the student.
    Also the school has provided the option to take a bus to other schools if you have a class at Nampa High or Columbia. Because of this bus, students also use the excuse of having a class at another school in order to get out of class ten minutes early. Teachers do not check their schedules to confirm the students eligibility to leave class.
    I personally know of a few teachers who don't care whether or not their students pass or do well in their class. Some students are ignored because they are slower in learning. Skyview should try and make kids more involved.
    The list could go on but i feel I have made my point, which is Skyview definitely has room for improvement and they know it but continue to neglect it.
    However I must say despite all that Skyview lacks I have had an enjoyable high school experience. I only wonder how it could've been better if all the improvements were made.

  • I feel as if Skyview doesn't care about the kids unless they are involved in sports. There are always kids out on the back patio, in the parking lot, out in the fields all around the school across the street, everywhere but in class. When my child is in class I get a phone call letting me know she was absent and they argue with me when my child has proof. Why are you worring about what is not happening and fix what is happening. I went to Nampa High one day and there was not a child anywhere because they were all in class like they should be. This is not the first year this is happening I know it has been going on for the past 3 years. Why can you not get your school under control. I want my child in a different school but in order for that to happen I have to leave my residence. Why should I have to move for my child to go to a better school. You have a very high drop out rate and that is because you just don't care.
    The kids have been in school now for quite a while and I have not received one progress report from any of my childs teachers. I get phone calls almost every day saying my child was late to class or not there but then report cards come home and there is not one tardy or absent on it. Can you not get your records straight either. What is up with the staff at Skyview are you all just there to act like your important? Lets get it together and make Skyview a better school.
