My daughter loved going to Coleman. She had great teachers and a wonderful experience. We loved wearing a uniform too, it made the mornings so much easier and the kids could focus on school and not what they were wearing

My daughter hates this school. She is in the 6th grade & has been picked on & bullied the entire year. We will move if we have to just so she does not continue there next year. awful!

This is one of wichita' worst schools. The kids there are awful There is a lot of bullying going on in the school This ratio of kids is way way off. My kids are American Indian And are out numbered by a long shot. There are more African Americans In that school than any other race. My kids are bullied Almost everyday and most time nothing is ever done Sometimes yes but more times than not its the kids who Get picked on that don't have a chance and the kids doing the bulling Get away with it. Last year they cancelled a music performance After everyone had gotten there they could not get the kids (some kids in the group) to settle down. I mean REALLY. It was ridiculous I would tell anyone who was thinking of putting their kid in Coleman To think long and hard before doing so!!!!

My child has only been at this school for a few months but it compares favorably with the school he came from. Incidents are dealt with promptly and parents are kept informed. Vice-principals handle student problems so the teachers can focus on teaching. There are several band programs.

A great school where structure and discipline is the norm. Any student that chooses to succeed will find success.
