I went to this school for 3 years and it was amazing. The teachers and staff showed that they truly did care for their students inside of school and out, and they''re extremely patient with their students. All teachers supported their students while giving us our education. Everywhere you went in the building you could find a teacher or staff member that was willing to help you out with anything you need whether that be with schoolwork or something more serious like mental health. You can even find teachers who will give you a good laugh. All of the school clubs were even fun, they helped you interact with other students and add to your overall experience at the school. Plus the athletics are really fun too, all of the coaches are always there to help you get better at your sport and they will never shame you for doing something wrong. After going here for 3 years and being able to experience everything that this school has to offer, I don''t think any school will ever be able to compare to Sky Vista.

I love this school. We moved here recently, and I have been so impressed with the community the staff builds with their students and the expectations they have for them! Sky Vista is honestly a really wonderful school, and if you want your kids to get a great education and feel cared for, send them here!

One of these security guards not naming names [she] has no idea what she's doing and calls student deaf.

I mean this school is pretty good but some of these rules that we have are an outrage. We have had a lunch lady say a straight-up a lie and a student was in trouble for no reason what so ever.
