My son and I are new to Sully as of this year. Upon walking in the building, the warmth and initiative of the staff is felt immediately. The school is very blended and tends to many multi cultural families. I was beyond impressed to see the amount of bilingual staff, so willing to communicate and help the parents and students who entered the building. I was also impressed to see how many people from the school knew who my son was by the second day of school. These kids are not just a number, and it's obvious their needs and strengths are something the staff strives to recognize and individualize. I've already had the opportunity to sit down with Colleen, the principal to discuss activities and PTO. I was heard, encouraged to get involved and it was made very clear that we as parents have an open door at all times to express any concerns or comments. I foresee great things at Sully this year with the hands on staff, some parent involvement and getting these kids engaged in all sorts of fun things to enhance their journey of learning.
This school is filled with families from all walks of life. Sully sees that, and takes an individual approach to each child. The staff knows each child by name, takes the time to speak with them and make them feel important. Sully also has resources in the community to do little things that may be of big help to some families.
My daughter is in the special ed. kindergarten, and we have been very pleased. They offer extended day, partial inclusion, and lots of enthusiasm. Very active PTO. New leadership has proven great, along with a huge slate of new teachers. Kids are very open and accepting of others with disabilities, and the community is very, very diverse. Anyone of any background would feel very comfortable here. Although located in a very blue collar, working class neighborhood, the program is outstanding and is equal to any that you would find in a more expensive neighborhood. I would highly recommend.
