to ensure that future generations are well prepared to live their
lives with meaning, dignity, and the ability to work together for
a better world. Respect and responsibility toward self, others,
and the natural environment are our guiding principles.
We believe that children possess a blend of multiple
intelligences and, drawing on “the best practices in education”,
we celebrate each child’s uniqueness, tailoring education to
develop the fullest potential of each learner. Encouraging a
sense of competence and self-motivation, classroom life is
interwoven with community life through practical experiences.
Skyview School is designed to be rigorous for the whole child.
Since 1996, Skyview has been a community of learners, where
learning happens within the multiple intelligences. We use best
practice teaching strategies to stimulate higher-order thinking
across all intelligences, using a level-to-level K-8 thematic and
project-based framework that is aligned with Arizona’s College
and Career Ready Standards.
Key aspects of what makes Skyview so unique are: the arts are
infused academically and celebrated at all levels; the values of
respect and responsibility are central to school life; intrinsic
motivation and self-direction are fostered to develop a lifetime
love of learning, where the ability to learn how to learn is
encouraged, as opposed to simply learning what to learn in
order to pass a test; and finally, families are encouraged to be
actively involved in their children’s education.
Teaching and learning are active and engaging in Skyview’s classrooms. Our effective instructional practices promote
equity and high expectations, making the content of products come alive and ensuring that all students think and
participate, allowing teachers to effectively track all students’ progress. Good practices foster character by inspiring
each student to develop craftsmanship, perseverance, collaborative skills, and responsibility for learning. Skyview
teachers promote critical thinking through problem-solving activities by engaging students to make connections,
perceive patterns and relationships, understand diverse perspectives, supply evidence for inferences and conclusions,
and generalize about the big ideas of their thematic studies.
Skyview School’s innovative framework is unique in that whole-child instructional strategies are seamlessly blended
together to create a culture of hard work, respect, and caring. Our dynamic collection of teachers, aides, and support
staff collaborate to create high functioning, engaging classrooms where students are involved in meaningful activities
that sharpen their focus and growth. As evidence from many years of testing results show, Skyview School’s approach
of teaching through the whole child creates academically prepared and eager students.
Our two-acre campus is located in the heart of historic Prescott and includes two permanent buildings, modular
classrooms, playground, outdoor theater, climbing wall, and outdoor dining patio. Skyview’s close proximity to the
downtown center permits regular walking trips to the Prescott Public Library, Acker Nature Park, Ken Lindley Field,
the Smoki Museum, Sharlot Hall Museum, and Yavapai College.
