At Sullivan we have a thorough curriculum to develop students in all areas of learning.  View the departments below to see our curriculum and goals.


The main objective of the Arts Department is to inspire and challenge the creative impulse of its students.

Special Education

The Goal of Sullivan’s Special Education Department is to provide high quality and specially designed instructional supports and services for all diverse learners within their least restrictive environment.



The English curriculum is designed to help students both in acquiring ability for effective written expression in a variety of forms and in developing a lifetime interest for purposeful reading.



Students benefit from a content-based approach to lesson planning and delivery. Language and content instruction are integrated so that students develop academic knowledge and skills in specific content areas at the same time as they develop their language skills.


Low Incidence

The Low Incidence Program promotes collaboration among parents, students, and educators to ensure the program’s students and their families have the necessary services available for success.

The objectives of the music program include fostering teamwork, leadership, performance presence, and collaboration. Music is an important part of a well-rounded education.
