Are you a Sky Islander?
  • Sky Islands is a small school full of big hearts. I learned a lot about myself just by being here for a year. Now that I’m here I enjoy school and look forward to it. Sky Islands is a lovely community that I'm glad to be part of.

  • Sky Islands is a great place to be! Everyone is welcoming and everybody knows each other at our school. Throughout the year, we work on projects in and outside the classroom. We also learn about so many interesting topics that you don't learn about at other public schools.
    — Luciana T
  • Sky Islands is amazing because the curriculum is unlike anywhere else. It is a community that is always changing, and everyone is friendly. The teachers here are the best teachers I have had in my entire student career. I now look at the world differently than others.
    — Klairisa S
  • I feel that the school’s messages they communicate to the students are really eye-opening, from the food we eat to the advertisements shaping us, and that we as a community can change this. I’m happy to know I’m graduating as an individual rather than a teenager clone, which would be the case at other schools.
    — Hannah B
  • When I first came to Sky Islands, I felt it was kind of weird because I wasn’t used to the whole idea of a school being a community, but more and more I came to the realization that this is how school should be.
    — Cortez W
  • The school is small, and the personal attention in a teacher-student relationship can do wonders for the student's ability to learn. Both the students and teachers have changed my life tremendously, all for the better. There is no finer high school.

  • Community is a huge part of Sky Islands. This school has amazing teachers, they are all fantastic, and they have taught me so much. I used to hate math more than anything because I never understood it. Now it is my favorite subject.
    — Emma W
  • Since I’ve been at Sky Islands, I actually enjoy coming to school on a daily basis. This school teaches students curriculum that is actually relevant to their lives. If you want somewhere different to go get a great education, I recommend Sky Islands.
