Unique Programs & Classes
Throughout the Sisters School District, students have an opportunity to take programs and classes that are hard to find anywhere else. Classes like Interdisciplinary Experiential Education (IEE) to get students outside into our backyard, or our Luthier program where students get hands-on opportunities to build musical instruments, or our Performing Arts program.
In addition to a great and caring atmosphere at each of the three schools, Sisters High School was named a “School of Excellence” by the State of Oregon and the Sisters School District was recently ranked in the Top 10 School Districts in the State.
Sisters High School offers six career academies. Students are required to take elective credits in a career academy of their choice. The goal is to make education more meaningful and thoughtful for students. A variety of programs suited to the unique interests of the student body account for part of Sisters High School’s success. There are many unique, grant-funded programs offered throughout the Sisters Schools which help to make this an extra special place.
Sciences & Mathematics
The High School’s math programs integrate math concepts from everyday life into classroom lessons. Course offerings of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, and statistics build toward college-credit level calculus.
The science program incorporates laboratory work, chemistry, physics, biology, astronomy and wilderness ecology. The Sisters Science Club, a group made up of retired professors, doctors, and more have developed a co-curricular learning model that supports all sciences taught within the Sisters School Distrct.
