Honestly, the world's chilled man. Rosedale wouldn't be the same without it. He is such a gem. #turtle
Love this man! He's so lovely to talk to! He's always calm and he's very sweet.
The best,, I love that he rings the bell every morning, it's so funny I love him
A great man who loves the school more than anything. I've been to other high schools and no principal has cared more for their students than Sketchley
BLESS BARRIE SKETCHLEY
Mr. Sketchley was there for me to encourage my education and future success. He spent a great deal of time with me, giving me alternatives, during a time when Rosedale did not exist. Should you currently or in the past, have had the opportunity to be a part of Mr. Sketchleys vision... You are fortunate to have known that education, is the key to opening the mind and experiencing life to its full potential. Thank you Mr. Sketchley! Your dedication is admirable.
Once in a lifetime kind of principal, don't take him for granted.
The most incredible principal there is! I'm honored that he allowed me to go to his incredible school and every year the last four I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming because the school he created really is that amazing, don't take it for granted! Its an amazing experience weather your the cool kid dancer or the visual arts freak.... Or if "non-trad just made you do it" or the spunky musician or a sassy drama queen... This really is the most incredible school.
The best! You could not ask for a better principal or person.
If you don't like Mr. Sketchley, you're absolutely crazy. Nicest guy in the world. I remember once I was walking in the halls feeling sad about losing my camera, and he stopped to cheer me up. Best principal ever.
A very cool principal, who really knows what he is doing.
sketchy is the BEST thing about rosedale and what makes it what it is. everybody stop beefing on him. he's great.
he shows alot of dedication rining that bell everyday and its awesome. also looks like a turtle.
It's pretty admirable that Mr. Sketchley got Rosedale to where it is now, though. He brought it from being a mediocre tech high school to being in the top ten high schools in Canada. That's something, isn't it?
The number of minorities has anything to do with Sketchers. Do you remember ticking off a "Minority" box on your application? If you mean staff, it's the Board that puts teachers in schools, not Sketchley. Race has nothing to do with anything. It is unfair and insulting to give him a low rating based on that uninformed notion. Mr Sketchley is an awesome principal who know's exactly what he's doing and how to do it. He's nice and cares about students - if you're on his good side, at least. ;)
i here he has a giant room full of bells. he polishes them every night. silver ones and gold ones, ones he never rings even. guess i know what im getting him for christmas next year.
i think hes way cool,that bell is so nice, i havent had a bell since the 2ed grade! hes also really understanding
that bell is soooooooo anooying!!! and i hate how in between the ringing he always says you're late you're late, as if we didnt notice
He does give a hoot about "standards", he's just diplomatic and it's not his style to "freak out". :)
Yes, some boundaries must be in place, however too many rules lead to "fascism", and we all know what that means!
Being too laid back encourages anything to happen: Instill some standards!
There's a difference between freedom of expression and allowing anything to happen.
very undestanding principal laid back and keeps the school in order without having to raise his voice
Those who love him for looking like a turtle and ringing that bell are very simplistic.
all ive ever seen him do is ring that really anoying bell
You can tell he's a dedicated person when he's out there ringing that bell every morning. Very nice man.
his reaction to me and my incessant rantin' was commendable...i must admit tho, the bell is evil incarnate an' whats wit da surfin;) for whom the bell tolls
Mr.Sketchley is funny but is tempermental if ur on his bad side but hey all together hes a laid back cool hip principal keep up the good work.
Dudes (and dudettes, the guy is helping me get into med school...what can I say?>
omg i cant stand him,.. i unno y.. i juss dun like him
He's so kool! He's the best! He thinks his jokes are funny but their not! Amazin
