My experience with Sullivan Central High School was overall pretty great. All of the staff at central are very nice and welcoming. The majority of the teachers help you when help is needed. The staff and custodians always come to work with a smile and even in the messiest situations, they light up the room. The administrators are always looking to make students smile. I've never experienced as much help as what the counselors were able to give me. They really guide you through your overall high school experience and I am very thankful for them and the rest of the admin. The students are also amazing. You'll never gain friendships or this type of family like you would at Central. We all support and love each other through the good and the bad. I had the great opportunity of becoming a leader to the freshman class, and the bond with them will forever be unbreakable! From the funny moments, to the stupid decisions we made throughout high school, I will never forget or regret Central!

I loved how closenet everyone was! It was like a family! I got really close to my teachers, they felt like amazing people i could count on and always talk to if something was ever wrong. I really enjoyed going to Sullivan Central and am so sad that soon this close family will close.
Over my four years of high school I have really enjoyed the teachers, they are so nice and willing to help you with what you need them to. The counselor's are amazing they are there to help you with everything, they help you make sure you are doing okay and that you are doing okay in your classes. I liked how the principal plans for us to do activities all together as a high school he makes it fun but still educational. All of the faculty work together to keep the school a great place and make sure that your focused on your work to excel in your future. Sullivan Central has some good food but I would like to see some better food options each week so it does not feel like you are eating the same thing all the time every week. They do have some bugs in the school, I would defiantly like to see no bugs like roaches in it. Other than those things it is a pretty good school.
