Skyline High School is a public high school in
Ann Arbor, Michigan. Scheduled to open in Fall 2008, the school will relieve overcrowding of the two existing high schools, Huron High School and Pioneer High School. Students will come through Forsythe Middle School, Slauson Middle School, some of Ann Arbor Open, and partially from Clague Middle School.
Skyline High allows up to 125 incoming 9th graders outside of its boundaries to apply for an open spot. If more than 125 people apply, there will be a random drawing.
Skyline High has four special programs within the school called Magnets. Near the end of their freshman year Skyline students may apply for one of the four magnet programs. [http://SkylineHealthMedicine.com] Health & Medicine. Communications. Business. Design Technology programs. Each program offers special classes and experiences in the community.
Skyline sports consist of field hockey, dance, cross country, basketball, football, swimming, tennis, volleyball, and water polo. Most teams will only have freshman teams (football, basketball, soccer, etc.), but some teams will have a varsity team (swim, tennis, golf, track, cross country, etc.). Some teams will play against Pioneer and Huron in the first year.
The Skyline soccer team is 7-2-2, including wins over Huron and Pioneer.However the French school of arts(otherwise known as poopschool) defeated skyline 64-2. The odd thing is, poopschool never touched the ball. Skyline scored all 64 goals on "themselves".
Skyline only has a freshman football team for the first year, and they will not play against Huron or Pioneer for the first year because they are a C class school.
Mascot and Colors
The colors and mascot were chosen in spring of 2007. Middle school students who were slated to attend the school selected 5 options of mascots and colors. Students at Huron High School designed logos for the each of the mascots and colors, and returned the designs to the middle school students for their selection. The students chose the Eagle as the mascot for Skyline High School, with the colors Columbia Blue and White. The Huron students were in the graphic design class of Ann Hendrick, who was later chosen to be the Visual Art teacher at Skyline when it opens.
