Image for Principal's Welcome

Dear Friends,

I would like to welcome you to Sulligent Consolidated School, located in north Lamar County, Alabama. We are excited to have this opportunity to showcase great facts about our school. Our school has about 850 students in kindergarten through twelfth grades. We have about 70 faculty and staff. Sulligent School has a rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence.

Sulligent School is a great place to learn and work. We try every day to make learning fun and exciting for all students. We want students to have happy experiences that will make them successful today and build a foundation to help them succeed later in college as well as in their careers. At Sulligent, we are a family who strives to grow together to meet our goal of making a positive influence on the lives of our students.

Sulligent students demonstrate success in many ways. We have high standards and truly strive for excellence. We are striving to help our students become leaders as we begin the process of becoming a "Leader in Me" school.  Many of our faculty members have visited exemplary schools to learn more about the leadership principles and process.  Students are gaining leadership positions and doing a great job.

While you are visiting our Sulligent School family, my desire is that you will witness the caring, dedication of our faculty and staff. I also want you to get to know our students who will be future doctors, teachers, artists, mechanics, parents, and other important people in our society. We want our students to be critical and creative thinkers and problem solvers. Our student data reveals academic progress. However, some things the data cannot illustrate are the sweet smiles of our students and the warm and friendly school climate that permeates our buildings. It cannot fully describe the close-knit staff whose main priority is helping students achieve to their fullest potential. These aspects of Sulligent School can only be seen and felt when you visit with us. These are the things we invite you to experience. Our motto is Excellence: Every student, every teacher, every day!

Again, welcome to Sulligent School, Home of the Blue Devils!
