My boys just started the 9th grade this year and they are actually excited about get up and out the door for school in the morning. As a parent this is HUGE. My boys have never been interested in sports and have had a hard time fitting in at other schools because of it. They feel very comfortable at Coleman Tech and I love that the kids are encouraged to be themselves and pursue what interests them not what others think they should be doing. I also like that the smaller school atmosphere where teachers and students can really get to know each other. I would highly recommend parents to check out Coleman Tech!!

Coleman Tech is...a great school, you have the opportunity to make new friends and have AMAZING teachers. I love it there, sometimes i wished it was like a regular high school, like football, cheer, stuff like that. But at the end of the day i know i made the right decision to go to Coleman Tech Charter High School. :)

Wow my child has an IEP and I feel that teachers and Resource don't even get together and talk about a plan for my child. It seems that the teachers feel like they don't even have to address the IEP and just go on as business as usual. Maybe one good Federal lawsuit will do the job.

Has such potential and could be such a great school. I bought my kids to this school with high hopes and have been let down is some pretty significant ways. For one, I worry about my kids and how there days is going every day due to the fact that they have both been threatened by other students and the school did nothing to help me. I had to get the school police involved after so many times of not getting the help I need and the officer actually had to instruct Dr. Wahab (sp) to do something about it. I'm not really sure who is in charge over there because it's not the principal who actually gave on of my kids to leave campus one day without my knowledge or convent. I've left notes for teachers to call me back to discuss grades, only to hear nothing back from them. I'm scrolling through all these great reviews for this school and wondering, why is our experience so different? We're just normal people who wart our kids to get a good education and high school experience like they deserve. It's been challenging to say the least :(

Great teacher and program-- my son is thriving at this school and actually likes going to school. He went from struggling to get C and D's to A's B's. Teachers are very responsive to parnet concerns and are willing to work with kids that do not fit into the education learning norm. I would recommend this High school !

CTCHS is a great school! I am very happy we found this school for my son, he is in his second year at Coleman Tech and he has excelled since attending this school. The staff are caring and devoted to each and every student. They are geared toward motivating each student to realize their full potential and to be college bound! I've never encountered such dedicated administration!

This school is great because of the smaller class sizes, and the enthusiasm of the staff. The campus is nice and new, and the students all seem to be happy and excited to be there.

Coleman Tech Charter High School is a small school where students get lots of individual attention. It's a "techy's" dream school, but there are lots of cool electives here, not just technology & robotics. The staff and administration are excellent. The school works more like a family unit and is totally focused on preparing students (and parents) for college. Plus, it's air conditioned folks! I was so excited to find this school for my child.

This school has helped my son to like going to school again. He has achieved goals that were impossible at Patrick Henry because CTCHS is open to communication & excellent scholarship & leadership. They help the students to become more aware of their individual talents & academic gifts. They are welcoming & loving in the way they teach all students. No one is left behind & the social atmosphere is that of a team/family. Love this school.

My daughter will soon begin her second year here and we are very pleased with the school so far. The teachers know the students and are able to keep them challenged or be available for helping them through difficult subjects (there are tutoring sessions available every morning before school). The school offers honors and AP courses, ASB and other clubs and sports, but is small enough that no one falls through the cracks. Yes, the test scores are low, but they were more reflective of prior years' learning at other schools since the school is new (I spoke with the principal before enrolling because the scores seemed so low). Look for the 2013 scores to shoot way up. Don't let the scores scare you away from checking out this great school - they are not reflective of the great learning that is taking place there!

I am very pleased with Coleman tech Charter high School. My grandson has gone there for 2 yrs now and the change in his attitude is amazing. He is not a number here, he is a person with a name and ideas. He has learned that Coleman teachers care! Teachers call if there is a problem, and together, parent, student, & teacher work it out. Students learn that school can be fun and educational at the same time. I have told everyone I know about Coleman Tech Charter High School. In my opinion this is it! A safe environment, hi tech environment (way of the future), College or Trade school bound environment, and teachers & staff that care. The new building if great, it gives a sense of pride in were they attend. For the first time in 11 years he likes school.

We are very happy with Coleman Tech High School. Our daughter gets a lot of individual attention, because class sizes are small, ranging from 7 (in Physics!) to 22. The teachers care about the students and the projects are great learning experiences. They vary the methods of learning that are used which gives the students lots of practice for college. The admin knows all students by name and they are all treated well.

My Granddaughter was miserable in school prior to starting at "Coleman Tech Charter High School". She started right out of middle school this year and we have seen a major improvement in her attitude and her grades. This has been a win / win for her family we are so happy she attends Coleman.

This school has given my student excellent opportunities. He is constantly challenged academically. This school has given him the tools and support to meet and exceed each challenge. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for these students. I can already see the growth of my student, not just mentally but also in character as a result of their influence. I highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to see their child not only secede in school but in life.

Coleman received WASC accreditation in January 2012 after opening in the Fall of 2010. Accreditation is not just given to new schools when they open their doors. It must be earned through a lengthy process. And, Coleman earned it! Congratulations!.

This school is very nice for students who have issues turning in physical assignments. That was the main issue I had, until I transfered to CTCHS where we use small notebook laptops. All of our work is done on the computer and turned in to the teacher directly from the laptop. This simple interface change allowed me to become much more productive and my GPA raised significantly. The teachers are much more then the teachers I had before, they are personal friends and I look up to them and respect them much more then I would at a typical 30 person per classroom type school. The small school environment has it's ups and downs. We are a huge family, and everyone knows each other on a personal level and no one tolerates bullying. The small school also results in unnecessary amounts of drama, where everyone knows everyones personal business. The current campus is also entirely inside and on the stressful days, it can feel like you are being trapped inside for 8 hours. This school isn't for everyone, but for those who need more personalized education and enjoy doing work on the computer, this school might be just perfect for you.

Coleman Tech's staff are outstanding. They actually care and try to motivate the students to exceed their own expectations. The goal of the teachers is not only to teach the kids now, but to prepare and encourage them to progress to college or a trade school. this school is VERY high tech (as their name implies). The kids all use netbooks. If you are looking for a otstanding school for your kid, I encourage you to call them and take a tour!

Coleman Tech Charter High School (CTCHS) offers students a private school atmosphere while remaining a free public high school in San Diego County. The school provides students with personal laptops and uses Promethean technology as well as cloud computing to put it at the forefront in technological learning. Classes are small (less than 20 students) and the school strives to give all students the ability to pursue personalized learning. This includes opportunities for students to take online classes in various subject areas as well as the ability to begin various clubs and activities that students would like to see at their school. The hallmark of the school is the advisory program. Classroom teachers work with students for the duration of their high school experience and establish personal relationships with the students. Advisers serve as the conduit between the parent and the school and closely monitor student grades and performance. Advisers also work with the students in developing skills and strategies to not only succeed in high school but beyond college as well. Students enter the school from day one knowing that they will be successful in all that they do.

The teachers are very supportive and helpful and the courses challenge you to work hard. The principal is nice, hardworking, and willing to make sure that you personally succeed. Each student is encouraged to do their best every day at school as well.

I am happy with Coleman Tech Charter High. It has a challenging curriculum that stresses excellence in its students. Our child is thriving at this school. Coleman Tech offers a uniquely different approach that incorporates technology and project based learning into its college prep program. The teachers and administrators are experienced, knowledgeable and care about their students. They also encourage parent involvement. At the end of the day, our child is happy and getting a great education.
