Nelda Sullivan Middle School opened its doors in 2016 at 1112 Queens Road in Pasadena with Kelly Cook as its principal. The campus was named in honor of long-serving Pasadena ISD Board of Trustees member, Nelda Sullivan. As a middle school, the campus serves fifth and sixth grade students. Sullivan Middle was built on the former grounds of Queens Intermediate, which was demolished and rebuilt two blocks away. Over the years, the enrollment at Sullivan has averaged 625 students. 

Principal Kelly Cook was one of the first leaders to introduce and implement personalized learning in the district. The campus was one of the first middle schools in Pasadena ISD to expand the Personalized Learning Program to fifth and sixth grade students. As a Summit Learning certified campus, 100-200 visitors from across the nation come to Sullivan to see how personalized learning works at the middle school level. The campus has also been recognized as a Leader in Me campus by the Stephen Covey Foundation.
