Catalyzes inner awareness and higher human potential
The SKY Schools program catalyzes inner awareness and higher human potential in our East Side students by teaching them powerful body-mind practices. The ultimate gift of a program like SKY Schools, beyond lowering stress and achieving greater focus, is that it awakens you to your deepest essence and higher human capacities. I feel honored to support the work of SKY Schools in our East Side community!
J. MANUEL HERRERA, BOARD PRESIDENT, EAST SIDE UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT, SAN JOSE, CA
It really calms me down. It helps me relax and be productive for the rest of my day.
COURTNIE CONYERS, ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS TEACHER, WILLIAM A. LAWSON INSTITUTE FOR PEACE AND PROSPERITY, HOUSTON
SKY has helped to create that culture of calm we really want our school to have.
The [stress management] strategies taught on SKY are not just used in the classroom, they are life-skills that the students and staff can use outside of the classroom as well.

Everlasting effect on life
Over the last five days, I have felt very connected with myself. I have become more at ease with who I am. I've become more flexible and focused....I'm glad I did this program....and hope to keep everything I learned with me the rest of my life.
Shanise, McKinley Technology High School
it is as important for you to learn life management and stress management skills, as it is to learn math
Getting SKY in school at this grade level treats it like curriculum, which is what it should be. It tells a kid it is as important for you to learn life management and stress management skills, as it is to learn math.

Providing focus and reducing stress throughout the rest of my day
In a world of constant interruptions, I have found that my morning 20-minute breathing practice, learned in the SKY Schools Educators Course, to be a treasured moment of peace, providing focus and reducing stress throughout the rest of my day.
FRANK BIEHL, TRUSTEE, EAST SIDE UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT, SAN JOSE, CA
My experience with the SKY program was revolutionary. The things that I learned here taught me not only how to become a better person, but how to not let others stop me from being a better person…I greatly appreciated and enjoyed this experience.
TAMEIKA, MCKINLEY TECHNOLOGY HIGH SCHOOL
I have learned how to relieve my stress in a very non-violent way.
I have learned how to relieve my stress in a very non-violent way. I have learned how to be calmer and not get as excited as I used to over small things.
DEVON, WALT DISNEY MAGNET SCHOOL, CHICAGO
I learned to be the controller of my emotions
Suddenly my ISAT score went up
After I took the SKY program I started doing the breathing techniques and suddenly my ISAT score went up. I got into the 90s and that is really hard to do. Most of my thoughts that are distracting just go away the second I start the breathing and I can just focus on the test ahead.
ZOEY, WALT DISNEY MAGNET SCHOOL, CHICAGO
Absolutely recommend the class to anyone, especially my peers
I can honestly say that this course was one of the best experience of my life. When I left each session I felt so much better about myself. I felt like I could get through any test, problem or obstacle and my self-esteem was definitely uplifted. Overall, YES! the course has given me something that I can use for the rest of my life. I would absolutely recommend the class to anyone, especially my peers. Every day there seems to be something contributing to our level of stress and it seems impossible to relieve. The people who take this class are the lucky ones and the ones who will always be ahead of the game in school and in life
