I absolutely loved Sullivan South. However, I feel the over all facility could use some improvements. The counselors, teachers, and staff are amazing! They were always here for me and made me a priority. I feel that you get what you put into your time there, and that makes all the difference. If you want to be successful and are trying to do so, you will be successful.

Sullivan South offered several advanced courses, such as Advanced Placement Biology, Chemistry, and History. In addition to this, they offered Dual Enrollment courses through the local community college. I appreciated these courses because I felt that while they were challenging, they helped prepare me for my college career and ensured that I was on the path to success!
My past four years of high school have flown by. Seeing it all come to a close is the hardest part, especially parting ways with all of the people I have grown up with. I have enjoyed high school. Sullivan South's school pride has always been my favorite. I am very proud to say that the upperclassmen of our school have always done a good job of making sure everyone knows what it is like to have rebel pride. Aside from our school pride, the academics have been fairly well. Our math and science teachers are the best. They have always pushed us to do our best. I have taken mostly honors and AP classes so I have had to put extra time in to school, especially since I have played basketball and volleyball my past 4 years of high school. The clubs have done a very good job of community service projects and helping out of school. I am going to miss this place, but I am so excited to start my future and grow in my adulthood.
