Why Sullivan


Individual Impact

At Sullivan, we genuinely have a student-centric approach to learning. We meet students where they are at, teaching them in meaningful ways to them personally. Understanding our students' unique needs helps us build our curriculum around them and not around us.


“We are a Personalized Education school. With our small class sizes and focus on Personalized Learning, each student has the opportunity to thrive.”

– Jordan Johnson, Resource Coordinator

“People think Personalized Learning is for kids that read at a 2nd-grade level, and they are 16, but it is also for the student reading on a college level and wants to go to Uic or U of I.”

– Angela Aviles, World Studies Teacher

“Because of our Learner Profiles and our focus on personalized learning, every team member understands how each of our kids learns and their goals. We are dedicated to helping them achieve their dreams.”

– Matt Fasana, Assistant Principal

Diverse Learners

Low Incidence Program

Our Low Incidence program was developed to educate students with moderate to significant cognitive disabilities. Through their Personalized Education plan our students not only study core subjects but they will also learn skills ranging from making breakfast to managing a coffee cart or running a recycling program.

"Our low incidence department is unmatched on this side of the city. Our students have very clearly defined real-world connections."

– Megan Mckenna, Diverse Learners Teacher
