I love that everyone there is fun, caring and involved. They take pride in their students and in turn it shows the pride for the school. As soon as you walk in the building you immediatly just feel happy. Every teacher, staff, volunteer and student just radiate pride and happiness. The education level is up there but it is taught in a way where the students learn it even when it is tough, the teachers all have methods to help students get it and they all take the time with the students even if it is one on one to help them all. Sisters Elementary is the best school by far. Go SES!!!!!

One of my children has attended this school since she was in third grade and she is now finishing fourth grade. She has had teachers that have been encouraging to her, helping her to strenghen her skills in writing, spelling, art, and music, which is where her talents lie. She has loved the music program and her fourth grade class along with the othe fourth graders performed excellantly in a music and dance performance, singing and dancing choreographed material. When there have been challenges with other children, they have been handled appropiately when mentioned to authority figures, whether in the classroom or on the playground. I feel safe with her there in this regard. She looks forward to going to school each day there and I feel each teacher that I have watched teach there seeks to bring out the best in the children there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
