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.
