    We spent up to $28 000 a year in Brooklyn private school without any good result. I moved my small books business and my son Adam Talbi to his school and I loved it. My son graduated from this school and we loved it and all the community. Recommend this school to any family who is looking for peace and good education for their children. Stay away from the big cities schools and save your children.

    I currently attend this horrible school and thankfully am in the process of moving. Sullivan west should be an all white male high school because that is all the teachers care about. The boys and girls are very racist and prejudice. This school does not offer alot to their students other than the basics of Spanish and average Sports such as Football and Basketball. Do not send your kids here if you don't want them to be depressed!

    This is a terrible school. They do not follow NYS guidelines and do not treat students well at all especially if they transfer from other areas. The staff and administration are not available for students or parents regularly dismiss major concerns and do not create an environment conducive to learning. Students and parents have been disrespected and slandered if they stand up for themselves or their children.

    Such a great school. I know student who went there and they loved it. They moved around a lot but ended up graduating from Sullivan West.

    This school is the worst I've ever seen. My child complained that the teachers were mean and would not help her at all when she had questions. The guidance counselors are airheads the food is disgusting (lunchladies do NOT where hair nets). My one child has a learning disability and his case manager who gives him extra help on his work REFUSES to help him. She told him "when you're 25 no one's going to be there to help you so get used to it." DO NOT SEND YOUR BELOVED LITTLE ANGELS HERE< IT WILL DESTROY THEM!

    I have had kids in other schools and this school is better in comparison. I feel my child is getting a very good foundation for college.
