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.

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.

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.
