Sullivan High School Reviews

Basic educational goals with limited extracurricular activities as well as limited class choices. The school system is funded well, by outrageous property tax rates in the county. Small class sizes with the average graduating class typically between 15-20 max. This is a basic small-town education system. Teachers are very well paid compared to surrounded counties. The educational funds allotted each year are wasted on hiring of multiple principles as well as an unneeded super attendant, for such a small number of students. This schools are predominately Caucasians with limited ethic diversity. This school district is listed as poverty level due to the students that attended, not the money received in property taxes, which is vary high.

The overall experience is very personal. Teachers are really there to help you achieve, whatever that may mean to you. Class diversity is almost nonexistent. Also, there aren't very many AP classes. Only a couple Dual Credit. Bullying is not a problem here, because it's such a small school.
The school was very well staffed for science classes, but it seemed to lack in teachers that knew mathematics and could teach it well. This school contained a lot of rules that I thought were a little too strict. I think the more strict the rules on the little things the more kids you see in trouble because of those little things; especially the dress code there. I feel like most of the rules for the dress code, but the no leggings and no showing of shoulders seemed a little over the top for me. The school's food was some of the best I have heard about in our area. I know it has changed since I left, but I'm sure exactly what has changed.
