Skyline High School

Rigorous. Relevant. Radical.

Skyline is a new innovative public high school in Bend, Oregon. Skyline is an exciting new option for students served by the Bend-La Pine school district.

Our school concept began in 2017. Community partners and school administrators came together with the goal of providing more options for Bend high school students. Skyline will open for the 2018-19 school year, welcoming roughly 50 freshmen and 50 sophomores. Over time, Skyline will expand to 500 students. Skyline is located in a large warehouse in northeast Bend’s industrial district and shares space with R.E.A.L.M.S. High School.

Skyline combines academic content mastery with collaborative inquiry and creative problem solving. Skyline students apply their learning in the community and on week-long intersessions. By making the world their classroom, students develop 21st Century Skills necessary for success in college, career and beyond.

Skyline aims to foster the wide-ranging interests, skills, and talents of all our students, from the humanities and arts to the sciences and technology.

Skyline shares the common elements of Deeper Learning Schools:

  • Make learning relevant
  • Focus on the process of learning
  • Increase student voice and choice
  • Encourage peer-to-peer learning
  • Make student work public
  • Set up every student for success

We incorporate the best practices of successful design-thinking schools, adapting them to the needs of Bend’s culture and community.

We believe students are most successful when their education is personalized and they are asked to use their knowledge to improve the world around them. In addition to academic skills, students at our school will develop life skills of collaboration, communication, creative innovation, critical thinking, content knowledge and confidence.

Our school values diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, physical ability, family structure and religion.

We invite you to explore this innovative educational experience and join our school community!
