This school treated beyond bad. I went to guidence every day and she did nothing. All my teachers would make fun of me for not doing a homework assignment. Over all awful school.

Class of '87 here and I would not have gotten where I am today if is wasn't for the exceptional values and education I had received from Coleman. Even up to last year, I had volunteered in their incredible theatre program and receiving such experience as a teen had laid the solid foundation that I still have today in the theatre, production and entertainment field. Cultivating all that I had learned from amazing talented teachers and students. Enroll your child at Coleman HS. It was some of the best times of my life.

My husband and I transferred our student from a local public school and could not have been happier with Coleman High School. This honestly was one of the best parenting decision we have ever made! The four years spent at Coleman were filled with pleasant days, quality friends, sports and community service activities and a quality education. Our student was singled out for excellent writing skills in the first college class taken- and at Coleman the English teacher was structured and had high expectations! Can't say enough about this excellent high school!
