Welcome

Welcome to Skyline School, Home of the Waves! We are a unique school housing two outstanding educational programs, our 4th-6th grade program and our Global Education K-6 program.
 
Skyline is the recipient of the 2012 California Distinguished School Award. This recognition was achieved through the hard work of our students, committed and dedicated teachers and staff, and our active and involved parents.
 
Our Parent Teacher Association and the Solana Beach Schools Foundation provide substantial financial and volunteer support to our school, supporting specialized programs, technology, science, art, music and physical education.

  •  Principal's Message
    Do you remember your classroom where you spent your formative years? You are probably picturing a teacher standing up at the front of the room writing on the chalkboard and lecturing to all the students. As you step into today’s classrooms, you will notice that not only is the chalkboard a relic from the past, but so are so many of the old-school approaches to teaching and learning. Our schools, including Skyline School, have made the shift to 21st Century learning, and our students need to master a new set of skills that will prepare them for the challenges and changes ahead. Our students not only have to master academic content to be ready for college and careers, but they also have to know how to collaborate, think critically and creatively, and use technology tools to communicate.

    As you walk around the classrooms at Skyline, you will see students working together to solve complex word problems in math, creating and sharing Keynotes and PowerPoint presentations with their peers to demonstrate their knowledge of science and social studies, writing detailed, and often highly insightful, responses to classroom blogs, and much more. Learning is no longer a solitary endeavor for our students, and our classrooms are filled with energy and a passion for learning. To learn more about 21st Century learning, please click on the “Parents Guide to 21st Century Learning.”

    Skyline STREAM Lab
    Calling all Skyline families? Do you have an old computer that you would like to donate to the STREAM lab? We are looking for old monitors and hard drives that our students can take apart to make new computers. Please contact our STREAM teacher, Gina Thackrey, 858-794-3664, if you would like to donate to the lab. Mrs. Thackrey is also looking for parent volunteers who would like to help out in the STREAM lab. Finally, if you have an occupation in the STEM field and would like to come into the STREAM lab to talk to our students, please contact Mrs. Thackrey.
    I also encourage you to visit Mrs. Thackrey’s website at: https://sites.google.com/site/streamskyline/.

    Finally, we invite all parents to participate in our STREAM survey. You may access this survey by going to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/skystreamparent.

    Parent Pick Up
    We have many parents who come on our campus at the end of the school day to wait for their students. We would like to ask you to remain in our quad area where our flagpole is located. If parents wish to go to other areas of the campus, you must sign in at the office first and wear a visitor’s badge. Thank you for ensuring the safety of Skyline students.
     
    Best wishes,

    Lisa Denham, Principal
