Principal’s Message

Dear Families and Friends:

Welcome to Coleman School’s landing page! Our goal is to provide Coleman families with multiple ways to stay informed and involved in their child’s education. Please make sure you visit our virtual home here on the web often to stay up-to-date on what’s happening in our school community. We want our school’s web page to be your source of information on all the happenings of Coleman School. In addition to our website, you may also find our presence on our Facebook page, Instagram, and Twitter. 

As the demands and complexities of educating children increase, it becomes even more apparent that we need to work together to ensure that our children reach their full potential. All of us–the school and the community–must hold our students to the highest expectations, both academically and behaviorally, and then support them as they reach that bar. We believe that in an extended family environment–after all, it does take a village–the success of our students is certain, and that as we empower children with the creative, intellectual, and choice-making skills they will blossom academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Coleman School. Whether you’re a member of our Coleman School Parent-Teacher-Student Association, a classroom mother or father, or supporter of our sports program, you are encouraged to be an involved member of our community. Research on schools demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family as we fulfill our mission of Paving Pathways to Success for our students in Raleigh.

For our scholars,

Steven A. Ward
Principal, Coleman School
