I think Skyline high school gives a good example of a learning environment. (Edited for grammar by Education.com staff)
Well this school is pretty good EXCEPT the restrictions they put for the 2010-2011 school year... Oh and it's great that they're building a new cafeteria and enlarging the gym...... the staff is pretty good they help you alot especially on your first day hahaha.... like me..... umm the school is huge !!!!! but you'll get around in about a week they give you about a week to get to know the school which is good. well overall it's pretty good school for the Clusters too. I am in the construction cluster which i think is GREAT!!! it's really pro-active in that class which is really cool. This comes from a student's first year there (me). it's a pretty good school i really recommend it!!!
