Skyline, Arizona’s Skyline high schools have seen a massive influx of new students since the school year began.
Now, a new report claims that students in those high schools are seeing the most students since enrollment started in the school system was restored.
The Sun-Sentinel reports that the school district expects to see a total of 823 students in the 2017-2018 school year, up from 536 in 2016-2017.
That’s a 17% increase in students, with the increase primarily affecting the Westview and Skyline schools.
“We’ve seen a lot of growth in students over the past year,” Superintendent Brian Stelz said.
“Students have been coming in to school, they’re staying in school, and they’re coming out.”
The Sun Sentinel reports that some students at Westview High School are seeing a jump in their attendance since the new year began, with an average attendance of 675 students, up 20% from last year.
While the students at Skylanes High School aren’t seeing any big jumps, some parents are concerned about the long-term impact that this new influx could have on the school’s finances.
The Westview school district has been struggling to raise enough money to maintain its operations and maintain a high school.
Some parents have said that Skylines High School has been losing money to keep up with enrollment and enrollment growth in other schools.
Skylinas High School Superintendent, Bill DeAngelis, has said that the district has put more than $1.5 million in a fund to provide financial aid for students to help pay for school expenses.
The district is now expecting to raise that amount by about $1 million this year, but that will increase to about $2.5 milion this year.
DeAngelias also told the Sun-Salen that the skyline school district is committed to maintaining a high level of academic achievement for students.
“I think it’s great to see students having fun, and I think it gives students an opportunity to see the world,” he said.
Parents have been pushing to see more schools open, especially since school was restored in 2018.
The school district opened the Skyline Academy in January of this year for students who had been admitted to the school, but not all students were allowed to enroll.
The Skyline School of Technology, which opened in August of last year, is expected to open its doors in the fall of 2019.
“The students are in awe of the technology in the new Skylino Academy,” said Skylina’s Principal, Eric Wootton.
“There’s so much to learn.
It’s been very therapeutic.
The students are excited about learning about STEM, technology, and engineering.”
Wootts son, Chase, said the Skylinos Academy has been very rewarding to him.
“When I first got here, I was a little confused about it,” he told the newspaper.
“My first day, I said, ‘Where’s the computer?’ and they said, The Skyliner Academy.
And I said ‘I want a computer.’
I said okay, and that was it.”
Chase Wootson said that his son was so excited about the new program that he started taking classes in robotics.
He said he loves learning and that he feels like he is getting better each day.
“This has been a lot more fun,” he added.
“Every day, the students are looking up to me, and when I come home, I see them looking up at me.”
Chase, who attends Skyline, has been impressed with the new curriculum.
“It’s so different from Skylones,” he admitted.
I think I will probably be graduating in September. “
I love it.
Skyline’s parent, Linda Westview, told the paper that Skyline has been working with the district to make sure students have the resources they need. “
It’s great that they are having this opportunity to make it better for their students, said Chase Wokton.
Westview is concerned about how students will fare academically if Skylanias Academy is closed down. “
A lot of these kids have to learn that there is a way to get into Skylins academy, and the school is doing everything it can to make that happen,” Westview said.
Westview is concerned about how students will fare academically if Skylanias Academy is closed down.
“At Skyline they have a great curriculum, great technology, great teachers, and we’re just trying to make the most of that,” she said.
