Our Philosophy

"We start with the kid in mind"

"At Sullivan, we changed the way we looked at instruction. We changed the way we looked at curriculum. We start with the kid in mind. We start with who our students are as a class, who they are as individuals. And then we start to plan our instruction, look at our curriculum and try to meet the needs of the students but also meet their passions, where they are and what they’re interested in each day."

– Principal, Chad Thomas
