Sullivan School seeks to provide a nurturing learning environment where each child can reach his or her potential.…More Located on the north end of Newport just off West Main Road, the school provides education for pre-kindergarten through fourth grade.
Sullivan opened its doors in 1955 and underwent expansions in 1967 and 1969 to accommodate increased enrollment. It's also undergone several renovations in recent years. According to a Rhode Island Department of Education School Accountability for Learning and Teaching (SALT) report, Sullivan is the only "neighborhood" elementary school in Newport, with approximately 80 percent of its students coming from the residential areas around the school.
As of the 2009-2010 school year, it had an enrollment of 265 students. The Newport School District moved fifth-grade classes from the district's elementary schools to Thompson Middle School in 2009.
Sullivan met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in 2009. The principal is Maria Mare Schulz.
