We have been very happy so far with Coe. My child first attended here after moving to Seattle from out of state. He had quite a difficult time adjusting and the staff jumped through hoops to make him comfortable. The amount of compassion from the staff was amazing. The academics are solid. Lots of writing in 4th grade and several options for math if you have an advanced student. The ALO gifted program is a pull out for LA and Math. There seems to be a lot of support for learning differences as well. The PTA is extremely active and raises money for additional programs and teachers. All in all it was a good choice for us.

I cannot believe the review below. The only thing I can say to this parent is that there was a weak principal in place for just under a year (the district corrected the issue quickly) and they must have suffered from this situation directly. The parent community is very involved and is always begging for more parents to join the effort. A great building...a great staff with many, many enrichment opportunities not found in most public schools. The PTA raised money every year, then gives it to the principal to hire additional staff. My second child is mid-way through Coe and cannot think of a better place for him.

Coe is a terrific school in every regard. It has private school quality (with public school pricing!). We feel very fortunate to live in this neighborhood and be able to send our child to this school.

Coe is the tent pole of our comunity. The spirit that is motivated there unites us all and brings us together in the spirit of comunity. Our children are happy and look forward to going to school each day for the educational, cultural, diversity, artistic, and citizenry experience they get at Coe Elementary School.

My grandson has attended Coe since kindergarten and had outstanding teachers in reading, math, language skills and the arts (music, visual, cross-cultural studies). His recent comment on his second grade teacher: 'I would recommend her to all first graders, Mom.' Also impressive at Coe is their stress on sharing with others, being non-judgmental and learning how to handle confrontation (physical and mental).

Coe has an extremely high level of parental involvement/commitment. As a result the extra-curricular activities are diverse, ample, and unique. From knitting to being able to star in an opera,Coe kids will be exposed to some rare things. The principal is exceptional, the community welcoming.

Coe is a wonderful community school. The parents are warm and welcoming with a true commitment to every child. Our daughter had a remarkable sense of belonging in this beautiful facility and I feel grateful for her 2 years there. We are only leaving because our child is entering a program for academically gifted children (for 5th grade). She advanced to this point in one year at this amazing school. I don't think you could go wrong with this choice.

Coe seems to be a solid school. The new building is fantastic. I think that they could focus on core disciplines a bit more, as evidenced by their relatively low ranking on the WASL.

We were involved with this school through two children and 11 years. It was the center of our community life and our closest friends are still ones we met through Coe. The leadership is the best in the district. There is one teacher who should retire but the overall quality is top-notch and they work well together. I have never seen another school that had such a committed, talented, roll up your sleeves kind of parent involvement. the kids benefitted enormously from that, especially in the arts arena. Math is a relative weakness in the curriculum, but that's true of many elementary schools in this district.

Coe is a great school with a lot of focus on relationships between staff and students. Academics are good and there are programs for foreign language available after school. Paarent involvement is a little above average, and the PTA is great.

Both of my children attended Coe until we moved out of the area. They both had a good experience there, with attentive and motivated teachers. The parent community was also very active and postively involved in the school.

A superior mix of dedicated teachers, an inspired principal and a large number of involved parents, make this the best public elementary school I've ever experienced.
