Sisters is noted for strong schools

Folks who choose to make Sisters their home are often attracted by its strong school system.

From a strong emphasis on the fundamentals in elementary school to innovative programs in high school, children in Sisters receive an education that prepares them to go out into the world and succeed.

While the schools do struggle with budget problems, the community is highly supportive. Last spring, voters approved the renewal of a local option levy for our schools in an unprecedented landslide, garnering nearly 80 percent of the vote, reflecting the broad community support of the schools.

That support is reflected in innovative programs.

Sisters High School has one of the very few flight sciences programs in the nation, preparing youth for careers in the field of aviation. Students also have opportunities for career-oriented education in fire sciences and health sciences.

The Sisters Science Club has hosted two Science Fairs and has sent freshmen and sophomores to the world-renowned Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle to expose them to potential career paths in the sciences.

The Sisters Folk Festival’s Americana Project educational outreach program partners with the schools to provide unprecedented immersion in the arts, from performance and songwriting to guitar-building.

The IEE (Interdisciplinary Environmental Expeditions) program turns the Sisters backcountry into a classroom, where students both learn and teach about their local geography, geology and weather, team-building and leadership. The program brings together science, language arts and physical education in a unique offering that is often a life-shaping experience for students.

Sisters schools are also renowned for highly successful athletic programs, from football to soccer to volleyball to track, baseball and lacrosse.

Another key component of Sisters' education landscape is Sisters Park & Recreation District. SPRD offers a wide range of programming for youth and adults alike — from sports camps to hiking programs, music classes and more. For information on SPRD, visit www.sistersrecreation.com.
