    "I agree with those who say come and visit. It is just a gem of a little school. The PTA is open and warm and they do such a nice job making things special for the kids. The art work and materials in the hall reflect the dedication of the staff to give our kids a well rounded education, constrained as they are by strict curriculums. There are numerous family nights that are well attended and a sweet little carnival to end the school year. My child is very happy. An emphasis is placed on community, inclusiveness, and respect for each other. In my time volunteering I have found the kids at Sitton to be sweet and respectful. Any small issues we have have been addressed quickly and openly. The teachers collaborate as grade level teams and all seem to genuinely care about one another. We are quite happy and my only complaint is that it isn't K-8."

    "I was hesitant when relocating to the Sitton school area due to its score. I couldn't have been more wrong. My son has attended two schools so far, one being a highly rated suburbian school and another in the PPS system. Sitton's staff is heads above anything we're used to, my son is getting the attention and direction he needs to thrive even though he has pretty intense case of ADHD. We are very optimistic regarding his education now when we were considering private schooling before hand. Before dismissing Sitton regarding its rating, please take a tour and see for yourself."

    "This is my family's second year at Sitton Elementary. All I have to say is the only way you will get a clear picture of the quality of this school is to walk through the doors, talk to the principal, meet with the teachers and then decide. This school is full of amazing faculty who strive to make a difference in each child's life. The children at this school are full of life and love and a yearning for learning! I can't say enough about the great teachers here--which, absolutely make this school a place where I want my kids to be!"

    "Sitton Elementary, among other public schools in Portland, has it's hurdles to bear. It's a Title 1 school in a district that has cut its budget year after year. But there's hope and many determined staff striving to make the school better year after year. There's an active PTA, a Junta de Padres group, Site Council, and a principal with an open door policy. We have many community partners who have given numerous hours, along with parents & staff, to paint, weed, and build items for the school. Any concerns I may have regarding my child's education has been heard and responded to promptly. Sitton may not be the right fit for every child, but it's worth taking the time to visit & talking with the principal before making judgements. As they say, you can't judge a book by it's cover!"

    "I whent to sittion 19 yrs ago, Im 25 now and my sun goes there now and nothing has change appearance wise. They still have a out dated play structure from when i whent there and the building looks like its gonna fall apart with tagging along the side as well. I would glady put in free labor as a parent to help paint or start sum kinda funraiser to get the play structure up to date i think the staff at sittion is nice but need to take more pride in there school apperance because it's way below standards. The only after school program is sun school give me a break! thats it what happen to music glass or flag football or sum type of extra curricular activity thats about learning something its just sad. I would not recommend this school for any kid way below standards"
