Superintendent's Message

Thank you for visiting our website, and for your interest in Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools. We are a top-rated school corporation by the Indiana Department of Education. On the most recent state report card, not only did the school corporation receive an A, so did each school; Bright Elementary School, North Dearborn Elementary School, Sunman Elementary School, Sunman-Dearborn Middle School, and East Central High School. This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work of our teachers, support staff, administrators, students and parents.

It is not just the Indiana Department of Education that has recognized our excellence. Cincy Magazine completes a comprehensive rating of all the suburbs in the Greater Cincinnati area. Over the past several years, Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools has made their list of top schools. For the 2015 edition, Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools was rated #6 in the entire Greater Cincinnati suburban area.

The students of Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools not only excel in the classroom, but outside the classroom as well. We offer a full range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities including athletics, fine arts, academic teams, vocation and agricultural programming, and much more. We are able to offer this wide array of programming in state of the art facilities.

Stop by and see us, and you will see why we say we are "Leading the Way in Quality Education!"

Dr. Andrew Jackson
