Skyview High School is a four-year public school, serving grades 9 through 12. The school is located along the Sterling Highway in Kalifornsky, Alaska, a short distance south of Soldotna city limits and directly west of the boundary of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The school's attendance area covers an approximately 75–mile stretch of the Sterling Highway, from Tern Lake (on the western edge of the Moose Pass CDP boundary) to Cohoe. This area includes Cooper Landing and Kasilof, and portions of Kalifornsky, Soldotna and Sterling. The remainder of the central Kenai Peninsula is served by Soldotna High School and Kenai Central High School.
The school's population varies from 400 to 500 students. The Skyview mascot is the panther, and the principal is Randy Neill. School hours are between 7:50 am and 2:26 pm.
Skyview also houses River City Academy (RCA), an alternative school for students who want to get ahead or who are falling behind. RCA consists of roughly 50 to 75 students.
Skyview High School opened in 1989, and is the newest school on the Kenai Peninsula. It was built to relieve the over-crowded Soldotna High School.
Skyview High School will be closing at the end of the 2013-2014 school year and the building will house a new middle school. The students from Skyview and Soldotna High School will be combined and will attend classes at the current Soldotna High School campus in the fall of 2014. The Kenai Peninsula School District has not stated what the "combined" schools' new name, colors, mascot, etc... will be. The district has set up a committee concerning this and will be taking public input on the matter over the next few months.
Skyview offers the following sports: wrestling, football, volleyball (women's), softball (women's), soccer, cross country running, cross country skiing, cheerleading, track and field, basketball, and swimming.
