Principal's Message


Welcome to Clara E. Coleman School! We are a part of the Glen Rock School District located in Glen Rock, New Jersey and are the home to over 300 fantastic students. We are a pre-K through grade 5 elementary school with a history of developing critical thinkers and life-long learners.  We strive for an atmosphere where students, staff and families feel proud, secure and committed to supporting each other.  This positive climate contributes to the overall success of our educational program.
As Principal of this wonderful school, I am extremely fortunate to work alongside a professional cohort of dedicated, caring and talented staff members who make our students’ needs their number one priority. Students are at the center of active learning experiences across content areas supported by a robust and diverse curriculum. We are proud of our students and work tirelessly to meet the academic, emotional, social and physical well-being of our student body.
As learning and teaching is often a collaborative effort, we strive to build a strong sense of community where our students feel supported.
You are always welcome at Clara E. Coleman School where “Kindness Counts!”
