Sullivan Central High School Reviews

I have enjoyed my time so far at Sullivan Central High School. A vast majority of my teachers have been very beneficial to my educational journey and have always been willing to go above and beyond to ensure the success of all their students. Also, the culture at Central is something you won't find at many high schools; the students, faculty, and even parents are like one big family. We care about one another and all work together to achieve a common goal of educating students and preparing them for the "real world." My only complaint is that I wish there was more information readily available to students about how to select the right college and career path for you and how to search for scholarships. Overall, I am proud to be a part of the legacy of this school.

I have loved most of my time at Sullivan Central, but it's high school no one is going to love every minute of it. I am part of a few of the organizations our school has to offer and I love them all! I am part of the SkillsUSA Culinary Arts team and I have loved every minute of competing and if it hadn't been for many of our teachers at Sullivan Central supporting me I don't think I would have enjoyed my time there as much as I have.
Sullivan Central is without a doubt one of the best high schools in East Tennessee. Throughout my journey at Central, I have grew immensely as a person, both mentally and physically. Faculty and staff are so friendly and welcoming. I have had teachers that became so close to me. Almost every teacher that I have had was so helpful, and they want nothing more than to help you succeed.
