The Skyline High School library, stocked with more than 10,000 books, serves our campus as a space that is productive, motivating, and conducive to holistic learning opportunities for all. The Library is a stimulating resource and learning center, a space where Skyline students feel able to take ownership of reflective learning experiences and interactive, creative enterprises. The Skyline Library also serves as a central meeting space for many of our programs and student groups. It is a space that connects services for students, bridging leadership and Instructional Work Experience opportunities for peer tutoring, remediation, and Restorative Justice practices.
We recently secured grant from The Heart of America Foundation for remodeling and restocking the library. We are delighted that the collaborative efforts of students, teachers, school Administration and District Management working alongside the new Teacher Librarian Mr. Bloomfield, resulted in this space becoming more welcoming and inclusive of students from different backgrounds. As a centerpiece of the beautiful Skyline campus, we have created, in the Library, a place where all students feel like stakeholders in their learning community.
