"No" is wrong. You should know this, if you're writing about family already.... It's "HA."

Other is 'hoka,' but I can't say for sure if it would sound right in this case. You should have spoken to your teacher after class. >_< There's no shame in having a question about something you haven't even learned yet!

I imagine you'd say:
Ane ha futari arimasu. (I have two older sisters.)
[Then maybe you could give their names so you could differentiate between them.] Namae ha __1__ to __2__. __1__ ha yasashii desu. __2__ ha .... desu. [And so on.]

or you could say 上の姉(uenoane) and 下の姉(shitanoane) to distinguish them.
上の姉は優しいけど、下の姉は厳しくて嫌い。
