As a smaller school, Sullivan is able to provide individualized instruction to its very diverse student body. City Colleges of Chicago and Columbia College provide college math credit and arts programming.

F*i*S*T* (Family*Integrity*Service*Tenacity*). These are the core values that drive Sullivan High School. We are committed to the education of the whole child; mind, body and spirit. We provide a rigorous academic curriculum, partner with a CVS sponsored school based clinic, house a heath-club quality fitness room and offer a variety of sports and creative activities to expand and enrich the mind. School offerings include dual credit programs through the City Colleges of Chicago, an Allied Health/Medical Honors Career Academy, a Business & Finance Academy and an Army JROTC program.

As a smaller school, Sullivan is able to recognize individual students and provide instruction tailored to the diverse student body while celebrating their cultural/ethnic differences and uniting them as on cohesive group.

Our mission is to educate across the entire spectrum of life; academics, the arts, character development and life skills. We teach students to enjoy life and provide them with the tools to do so.

Academic Performance
School LevelLevel 2+
This is the rating the school district gives to a school about how well they are performing. From highest performing to lowest performing, the possible levels are: Level 1+, Level 1, Level 2+, Level 2, and Level 3.
Freshman On Track94%
This is the percentage of the last 9th grade class that, based on their grades and attendance in 9th grade, is on track to graduate. Whether or not a student is on track during their freshman year is the biggest indicator of whether or not they will graduate from high school on time!
Average SAT Score862
The SAT is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admissions that students take during their 11th grade year. This piece of information averages together the scores of the last 11th grade class at a school. The CPS average is 951.
Graduation Rates70%
This is the percentage of a group of students at a school that graduated within five years. The average in CPS is 69.9%.
College Enrollment Rates56%
College Readiness20%
This is the percentage of students at a school that scored at least a 21 on the ACT, which demonstrates a higher level of readiness to take college level courses.
School Culture
Student Mobility19%
The percentage of students that transfer in or out of the school during the school year. A higher percentage means that there are more students coming and going. Though it doesn’t tell us why students are transferring in and out, we can imagine that it could feel a little unstable if this is a high percentage.
Student Attendance85%
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
Teacher Attendance90%
This is the average daily attendance of teachers at the school – on average, what percent of all the teachers employed at the school are in attendance. As a student, it could be more challenging to make academic progress if you regularly have substitutes or don’t get to build a relationship with the teacher.

School Fit
Avg Class size20
This is the average number of students that is in each classroom. Use your current class as a reference point. Are you comfortable learning and contributing in a class this big? Would you prefer a class that has fewer students or more students?
Total Enrollment660
This tells us the total number of students that attend the school. Use your school as a reference point. Would you like a school that has fewer, more, or about the same number of students in your school?
