About Us

Mission Statement

The James J. Sullivan Elementary School is dedicated to maximizing the potential of all students and providing them with the academic and social skills necessary for success. This is best accomplished through setting high expectations for students, the delivery of data-driven, quality individualized and classroom instruction by teachers, and giving parents tools that help them to become active participants in the education of their children.


We believe that students differ in their needs, interests, abilities, and learning styles. We are committed to providing our students with the individualized instruction and attention they need and deserve to flourish both as students and individuals in our society.  As such, Sullivan strives to provide an educational program that enables all students to maximize their potential in a variety of settings. The mission of James J. Sullivan School is to educate our students to become better readers, writers, thinkers, problem-solvers, and life-long learners in alignment with the state and national standards.
