I am proud to be a Coleman parent! Our school is filled with talented teachers, staff and administrators who are committed to our children's education. Thanks to their dedication, and to incredible parent involvement, Coleman isn't just a great school...it's a great community.
We live down the street from this school, and my two kids love it there. The building (more like a mini campus) is new with gorgeous yellow classrooms surrounding the library and playground. The teachers are supportive and the principal is right on top of things. Parent involvement is extremely high and keeps everyone involved. Neighborhood is beautiful here.
Coleman is a diverse school that emphasizes community and a real livelong love of learning. It is a model of diversity and community at work.
Coleman Elementry school is a top class School. As a teacher myself having had the opportunity to observe a variety of educational environments I have been delighted and very impressed with the school this year.
As the parent of three kids who attend this school, I can personally attest that it has a fabulous teaching staff and the parental participation is incredible. The school is very ethnically diverse which gives students a real taste of real life. Most of the schools in this area (Marin county) lack this aspect and thus lack many life lessons, such as tolerance, learned as a result. It is a small school with an incredibly big heart.
I love our teachers and our school community. The parents are so involved.
Coleman is first class community school. The school has recently been rebuilt from the ground up and has a friendly, intelligent and thoughtful energy that has gone into everything. This ethos seems to start with the principal and carries through most every aspect of the school I have encountered. A highly effective dad's group secretly runs fundraising and social events behind the scenes. To give you a tangible points of reference, The children know the school song and proudly take turns babysitting Coley the Tiger , the school mascot.
Colemen school is very good school for learning math reading pe and spanish and about what child eats well and a bout health
A brand new school and a very involved community of parents are making Coleman the best school in Marin. I have seen the progress first hand. The teachers are exceptional and the students are engaged and excited to learn. The parents of Coleman students are commited to making this the premiere elementary school in San Rafael.
I am so proud to be a Coleman parent. I have two children in attendance and am witnessing their metamorphosis from dependant, self centered (it has, after all, until school, been 'their world), protected babies, into self confident, independent, free thinking, and COMMUNITY MINDED PEOPLE I am blessed to know. I am proud to be their parent, and am happy to take partial credit for the contribution of them to your society. Coleman Elementary School is my partner in that achievement. The staff, the diversity which absolutely reflects the society they will graduate into, the parent involvement, the philosophy we all share in the development of not only test scores but the development of individual human beings who will have learned how to be true contributors to society. Coleman Elementary, albeit unfortunate that it is noteworthy, realizes that their responsibility as an educator stretches further than the basics.
