At Coleman, we are a family. All the students are looked after by the entire faculty and staff not just his or her own teacher. This August we welcomed Mrs. Jackson our new principal and look forward to her leadership for years to come. She has already made several adjustments in the foundation of our day to day routines. Change is difficult at times but it is needed to flourish and grow. We are making progress with leaps and bounds in safety and discipline, parental involvement, extracurricular activities for students, and most importantly academics! Keep an eye on Coleman because this is a school that is about to find her place on the map!

I have been very unhappy with this school, The school has no discipline policy and the faculty is very rude. I sat in the office and was ignored by everyone in the office, including the principle for over 45 minutes. I am not happy with the curriculm and I feel as if she spends another year at this school she will be academically challenged

I would definetly say this school is and always has been at the bottom of my 'favorite school list'! I have had nothing but bad experiences with teachers,principal,and most faculty! There are no extracurricular sports for the children there art program is only for the 4th grade that's a big joke!

Corporal punishment and other methods are rampant at this school. So is the push to get your child on meds, extra money plays a big part in this!
