My kindergartner is in Mrs. Pitner's class and is doing awesome! He loves her class and she genuinely cares for the children. Parents are welcome to come into the class to read to them and be involved which is huge for us. Can't say enough good things about it. It has met and exceeded every expectation.

I have one daughter at Sullivan that is going into the 2nd grade. We have had a great experience with the teachers and principals. We have loved all of her teachers and she has too. I would recommend this school without a doubt!!!

Hope Sullivan is an excellent school with wonderful teachers and staff. We could not ask for anything more in a school.

I have two daughters at Sullivan. I've been very pleased with the teachers as well as the principal. I am very appreciative of my daughter's second grade teacher, Mrs. Horton. She has been a lifeline for me and my daughter. I would encourage any parent to choose Sullivan for their children. The principal is not just a principal, but a parent, and not to mention a dear friend. I do not think I could have asked for a better environment for my daughters to be in each and every day. The staff is very helpful and seem to really enjoy working with our children, which means a great deal to me. So in closing, I want to say thank you for guiding our children the right direction. As for Mr. Darnell, we will miss you greatly. Good luck next year.

I have two children at Hope Sullivan and we love it. We have been a Sullivan family for 6 years now and wouldn't trade this school for anything. The teachers and principals are all great. The main concern at Sullivan are the children. They have a great mixture of learning and experiencing. My kids have made life long friends at this school, I have too. Sullivan Wildcats Rule!

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
