Sullivan East High School Reviews

It’s a very good school, the students help each other out and We all care for one another. The school lost students due to bullying and that was part of the learning experience for the school. It showed the school that bullying isn’t good for anyone and lives were lost but ever since then their hasn’t been any bullying. The school has very good classes, the academics are great the teachers make sure you understand the class. Sullivan East High has very good vocational classes as well some of the classes are great such as construction and management, shop, and architecture and engineering design. They are great class and teach you about jobs that doesn’t require much college. Overall it’s a good school and I am proud to be a student here.

The campus is somewhat lacking in visual appeal, cleanliness, and general safety, particularly the roof. A few responsible teachers, who genuinely enjoy their positions, teach at the school; most do not care or lack gumption and skill. They are often kind people, but poor educators. The facilities are noticeably aged and outdated, due to the lack of funding through the school system. They also suffer from a shortage of academic charisma, challenge, and honors participation. Organization is inefficient and drama abounds.
The theatre program at Sullivan East was a wonderful place to call home and escape from other problems at school. However, there should not have been problems to escape from. These problems mostly included bullying, to which many staff would turn a blind eye.
