Skyline High School is a public high school in Millcreek, Utah, United States. Skyline High School serves ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders. The school opened in 1962 and is administered by the Granite School District.

Admission to Skyline High School is open enrollment. Students are neither required to take an admission exam nor need to live within the boundaries set by the administering district. Academically, it is one of only seven Utah schools to offer the IB Diploma Program, along with Hillcrest High School, and West High School. Skyline's music and drama programs have received statewide recognition. The debate program is also ranked at the region and state levels. Since the school's establishment, fourteen Skyline students have been selected as US Presidential Scholars.[2][3]

Originally built in 1962, the Skyline High School is a 0.15 km² (0.06 mi²) medium-sized campus located at the mouth of Millcreek Canyon, just west of I-215. It includes soccer, softball, baseball, and football fields, as well as tennis courts. The school has 677 student parking stalls, and 28 faculty only parking stalls.

The campus is divided into six different buildings: A, B, C, D, a preschool, and an auxiliary gym/pool. The A building is the main academic building, and with 63 classrooms, it is the largest building on the campus. The B building has a cafeteria, auditorium, gym, and three classrooms, while the C and D buildings include seven classrooms and an auto shop.

Athletics

Skyline High School's athletic program includes 37 teams covering 22 sports.[4] The teams are known as the "Skyline Eagles" and are a part of the Utah High School Activities Association.

Football

When the school was first established in 1962, many of the incoming seniors were given the choice of remaining at their old school, Olympus High School, or moving to the new school, Skyline. Because most of the seniors chose to remain at Olympus High, the majority of Skyline's 1963 football team was made up of sophomores and juniors. The first year was difficult for Skyline, but by the late sixties the football program had improved and had won two state championships in 1967 and 1969.[5] Throughout the seventies Skyline's football program continued to be successful and won four state championships in 1970, 1976, 1977, and 1979.[5] During this period Skyline was led by head coach Ken Schmidt, who later became the defensive coordinator for the BYU Cougars,[6] and assistant coach Ron Haun.[7]

In the 1990s, Skyline's football program was led by head coach Roger Dupaix and played once again in the state playoffs.[8] In 1999, Skyline football won a fifth consecutive 5A state title and was ranked 24th in the nation by USA Today.[9][10] Overall, the Eagles have been football state champions fourteen times (1967, 1969, 1970, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2005). In 2005 the team went into the playoffs as the fourth-ranked team in the region, where they rallied to win four straight games, beating rival Brighton High School in the state championship game.

Skyline's biggest rivals are the Olympus Titans. This is one of the state's greatest rivalries.[11] The two schools play for a traveling trophy known as "The Rock". This football-shaped rock is painted the colors of the winning school and is placed on display in their trophy case. Skyline leads the series 26-22-1, but has lost six of the last seven meetings, including a 24-17 heart breaker in 2015. The two programs had their 50th regular season meeting in 2016. Olympus dominated Skyline in 2016, 31-14.

Basketball

Skyline won state basketball championships in 1976 and 1977. The 1977 team was ranked nationally as the fifth-best team in America, with a record of 26-1.

Women's tennis

Skyline's women's tennis team has been state champions for three consecutive years in 2009-5A, 2010-5A, and 2011-4A; they took second in 2008-5A. Skyline was one of the original 5A schools, when 5A was established in Utah in 1993, but due to decreasing student enrollment, was moved to the 4A program in 2011.

Swimming

Skyline's swim teams hold a seven-year dynasty (2001–08) at the state competition. Head coach Rod Horton spent 12 years with Skyline and won nine swimming state championships. In 2005 Mr. Horton retired from Skyline High School to become Vice Principal at Taylorsville High School—another school in the Granite School District.[12] Mr. Horton was replaced by Joe Pereira in 2005. Mr. Pereira moved to Skyline High School after a successful coaching career with Cyprus High School. Skyline swimming continued under Mr. Pereira to win three state championships, and eight second place finishes for both the men and women.

Lacrosse

Skyline's lacrosse team had its inaugural season as an independent team in the spring of 1997. Due to a lack of participation in 1996, they competed jointly with Brighton High School. The team has been a contender for the state championship on a number of occasions. In 2005 Skyline won the state championship.

Track and field

In 2006, 2008, and 2009 Skyline won the 4x800 meter relay at the Davis High School Track and Field Invitational. The cross country team won their 5A region, both boys' and girls' teams, in 2009.

Ice hockey

Skyline's hockey team won the 2010 state championship over Viewmont High School, and went on to finish in the top 15 at the USA Hockey High School National Championships held in Chicago, Illinois. The hockey team repeated the win in 2011 in a 3-2 overtime victory over Bingham High School.

Wrestling

Skyline's wrestling team went undefeated in region duals for three years (2006–09).

Water Polo

Skyline men and women won state titles in water polo three years in a row (2002, 2003, and 2004), under coach Rod Horton.[13]

Baseball

Skyline's baseball team won the 1991 American Legion State Championship. Skyline won the state championship in 2012.

Academics

Skyline is one of just seven schools in Utah to offer the IB Diploma Programme, along with Hillcrest High School, Bountiful High School, West High School, Clearfield High School, Highland High School, and Provo High School. It is also the only school in the Granite School District to offer this program.

Skyline High School was ranked as the number 5 high school and number 1 traditional public school in the state of Utah by US News in 2020.[14]

Skyline's math team has repeatedly earned recognition at a state and national level. In the 2009 Team Scramble competition, Skyline tied for thirteenth place nationally,[15] and placed fourteenth nationally in the 2009 Ciphering Time Trials competition.[16] In the 2010 Four-by-Four competition, Skyline also placed fourteenth, and four Skyline students placed third nationally in the Scissors Division.[17] In the 2008–2009 Mandelbrot Team Play Competition, Skyline tied for eleventh place nationally.[18] In the 2010 Utah State Math Contest, Skyline placed first in the 12th grade for the 5A category, and individual Skyline students placed first in 10th grade and first and second in 12th grade.[19]

Skyline garnered much attention in November 2012 for being the first high school in the world to participate in SC's Student Cluster Competition[20] in the LittleFe Track. They took home an honorable mention for "coming out of nowhere and taking the lead for a significant amount of time".[21] They competed against universities, including the University of Utah and Slippery Rock University from Pennsylvania.

Newspaper

Skyline's school newspaper is The Horizon, a quarterly printed publication, with new articles on their website once a week. The staff generally consists of six editors and numerous staff writers. The Horizon has four sections: news, opinion, feature, and sports.
