Superintendent Welcome

Young Student in Physical Education ClassThank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools. We are one of the top-rated school corporations in the state by the Indiana Department of Education and the top-rated school corporation in the southeast Indiana region. On the most recent state report card, Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools received an "A" rating.  In addition,  Bright Elementary School and Sunman Elementary School received a "C" rating, North Dearborn Elementary School received a "B" rating, Sunman-Dearborn Middle School received an "A" rating, and East Central High School received an "A" rating and Four-Star School status, recognizing the school as one of the top performing high schools in the state. This accomplishment is a testament to the hard work of our teachers, support staff, administrators, students, and parents.  But we won't stop here.  Our goal is to continue to improve until all schools receive an "A" rating, and achieve Four-Start School status.  For more information about our vision for the future of Sunman-Dearborn Community Schools, visit our Strategic Plan webpage.

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, vocational 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 "Surpassing Expectations and Inspiring Excellence in Every Student, Every Day!"
