Caring, capable, contributing, connected
South Tampa’s Coleman Middle School has earned an "A” grade for more than 20 consecutive years. Designated by the state as a School of Excellence, our staff is dedicated to helping students reach their academic potential while giving back to the community. Students are challenged through rigorous Scholar Quest courses such as Advanced Math, Gaming and Simulation Computers and Robotics, where they can earn high school credit while acquiring skills that will make them competitive in the future workplace. Through Electives, our students are able to sample exciting courses that include Speech and Debate, a top ranked music program that routinely scores straight Superiors and many other options that will allow them to pursue what best sparks their interests. Our ESE Program participates in Special Olympics every year while Coleman boasts the largest Best Buddies program of any middle school in the county. Our students connect with classmates through our many sports teams and clubs. Sixth Grade Structure gives students the support they need to navigate this exciting new learning environment. At Coleman, we believe in the four "C’s”: Caring, Capable, Contributing, and Connected.
