Sisk Elementary school is not a very good school I wrote a whole review on why I think it is not and for some reason somebody took it down The truth must hurt pretty bad

We had to transfer our child out of this school and district despite living two blocks away. They told us they thought our child had a learning disability, so we went and got him diagnosed. We were told he had extreme ADHD. When we took this information to the school to get him in a program they said they couldn't place him in the program because he was fine without it. The truth is it costs the school money to place a child in the program and they did not want to do that. Inexcusable!

Hate it when you pick up the kids they have no coordination in the pick up drop up zone every body just park and get off the cars and stop traffic and the staff don't do nothing about it

The staff and principle are a joke . That are rude to the kids I voulnteer very often and am very disappointed of how they handle situations and again how rude they are . And I'm talking about the whole staff from the office to the cafiteria to the yard duties. There are some good teaches but my sons teacher is not that great I see how she treats kids and it's not how my kids teacher were at another school . I would recomend for you to take your child to another school

Bullying is bad and the school doesn't hold the challenging kids accountable. Many student are bullied by the same child.

Sisk Elementary is the BEST elementary school in the Salida Union School District. The teachers are top notch at all grade levels. Sisk has an incredible ability to help children who are struggling while still helping above average learners excel and stay challenged. It also has the highest academic rating which is also well above the other two schools. The staff truly cares about all students and treat them as is they were their own children. I feel safe and secure sending my children to this amazing school. If your students are at another school or in the boundaries of another school I highly recommend you transfer to this school. It is within 5 minutes of the other two schools in this small town.

I just enrolled my children in Sisk after moving to Salida, and I'm glad I did! My eldest child is in the fourth grade, and up until now I felt that he had not been getting a good education. Sisk really expects more from him than his previous school did, and I feel that they really care about him as an individual.

My children have been attending Sisk Elementary school for five years now. I am very pleased with all the staff that is at the school. The teachers are wonderful. They help their students to succeed in every aspect of their academic course. Programs are the best. They have the reading program where they stimulate students to read and read. Keep up the good work Sisk School!

I am very unhappy with the way that the reinforcement in the school to get the children to do what the teacher and staff want them to do is in my judgement negative. I know that positive reinforcement works way better that a negative reinforcement. My grandchild seems most of the time defeated when he hasn't even really started yet. He is a bright child and there is no reason for this.

My oldest daughter has attended Sisk for 4 years. The teachers have all been wonderful, and I believe that my children have received a high quality education. I have never had any complaints about the school. I especially like their reading program, and their award/recognition program.

My child is currently enrolled at Sisk Elementary in first grade. In the year that he has been there, I seem to have enjoyed the friendly staff. My son loved the teachers that he has had and his potentials are encouraged by his teachers. So I have no complains inregards to this school.

You just can't get any better than Sisk! I did a district transfer for my son and drive him twenty minutes each way just to attend this school. He is a bright child that needs the proper guidance and activities to succeed. All of his teachers have tapped into that and he excells. The library and computer lab are awesome, as well as the administration and support staffs. Their test results back all this up. The whole district is great.
