My daughter graduated from Sullivan North in 1995 receiving a wonderful education and forming friendships from students and teachers that have lasted well into adulthood. I work at the highschool now and it is the best kept secret around. Our administrators, faculty and staff are the most caring that I have ever been around. If a student has a need, financial or just a little encouragement I have seen it given from custodians to principals. This is the most caring group of people I have ever seen.

Sometimes I felt that kids who didn't try to do their best had more opportunities here than the more advanced students. Remedial type classes went ahead with very few students, but AP classes would be canceled because less than 13 had signed up. There are a few wonderful teachers at North, but the mediocre ones far outweigh them. When I graduated there were only 4 AP classes, and the only other worthwhile classes were designated as honors. The rest required very little effort from anyone.

Sullivan North is a wonderful High School. The teachers, students, caretakers, and principals have a unique bond which creates unity throughout the school. Everyone works hard to make North a great place. it is truly the extreme attention and care the staff provides to the students which, I believe, makes this school so great. Never will a teacher or principal ignore a problem just because it is unique to an individual student. The faculty cares for each and every problem a student might be facing. North also has superb sports teams and a tremendous Art program, not to mention an adept team of caretakers who work relentlessly to keep the school immaculate.
