One of the worst schools i've ever taken my kids to..They are terrible at informing you how your child is doing till it's to late. I do not recomend this school. Plus every time you turn around they have a school project you will have to pay for not in just science but in History English and Math... What happened to teaching kids basics? I will not be taking my kid here next year.
I am a parent .. this is the first school I actually pulled my kid out of.. Teachers dont tell you your kid is having trouble till it's to late. I do like the vice principal.. He contacts you emediately if you have concerns.. Also if your child does not finish his schoolwork in class he or she probably wont do well. You dont get a history book to take home or a science book. I am very disapointed in this school.. My children have attended for four years.. They are A and B students but no thanks to the teachers..Plus they never taught the children cursive.. How sad is that.. Im teaching my children that myself plus everything else they know..very poor teachers.
My daughter is in the 4th grade at Coronado and has attended there since Kindergarten. Overall, this is a great school with great teachers and professional staff.
My daughter is getting ready to start 1st grade there this fall. She went to half day kindergarten there last year. She had Miss Nicholas and she was great. I am excited for the new school year to start. I wish that we did not have to buy so much for the supply list.
Coronado is an awesome school with great. Every school has its problems, but I would say that Coronado as a hole is a great school. It is the district that is the problem. Coronado has wonderful staff, admin. students and parents, but like at all schools their are problems and it is up to the parents to communicate with the teachers and staff. If you work with the teachers, they will work with your children. I would recommend Coronado to others. Be involved! Don't be one to stand on the side -lines and complain.
We also sent our 4 children here from Ben Franklin and had simlar experiences as the below family. Our 6th grader suffered as well and we also will be looking into other Junior High Schools for him. We will be switching back our other children as well. I was not pleased at all with the teachers and especially the principle. Now I know why a lot of our neighbors send their kids to the near by Gilbert schools rather than this one.
I think Coronado is a great place for my children to recieve their education. All 3 of my children enjoy going to school each day. The Administation has bent over backwards with my conserns and questions. I think the Distric has some work to do but Coronado itself is great. The K-8 idea is great in keeping my older daughter growned and focused. There are a few teachers that I don't care for but for the most part they all care about my kids and I couldn't be happier.
I can not say enough great things about Coronado. We have been going there for 5 years. I hope those that read this will disregard the earlier postings as things have dramatically improved over the years. It has been such a wonder watching this new school develop. The Principle truly cares about the kids. Each week she has a 'Lunch Bunch' . By the end of the year she has met each and every one of those 1100 kids and knows most of them by name. Her Assistant Principle is very caring as well. They are constantly working on ways to improve the school both academically and socially. The office staff is the most friendly and helpful staff out of any school I have ever been to. The parent involvement is outstanding. The teachers for the most part work very hard for my children in innovative ways to teach them.
My children have been at Coronado for 6 years now. I have been very happy with education they have received. I have delt personally with the principal and I find her extremely professional and to have the children's best interest in mind. I have delt with the office staff and have found them very friendly and eager to help when needed. The teachers my children have had are great. Many of the teachers have moved up to the next grade with my children and we have found this to be a benefit to all. All in all I have found Coronado Elementary School to be a great school for my children to attend.
Most of the great teachers at Coronado will not return for the next school year as they are going to other valley schools. This could be a problem. My kids will continue to attend and although their grades couldn't be better I wonder how they will compare to next year. As other parents have stated I am also concerned by the lack of diversity. Also the counselor could be more helpful and outgoing towards students who seek her advice. Much more.
If you want an overcrowded school with little parent involvement this school is for you! I have never been so unhappy with the quality of teaching and lack of parent involvement. Most parents use this school as a drop off for babysitting and do no extra work at home. We pulled out our three children and put them in private school. We have to sacrifice things in order for our children to get a great education. You could not pay me to send my kids this school!!
I have never been more dissatisfied with a school. This school is disorganized and the teacher quality is extremely poor. Teachers don t seem to be able to handle their classrooms. I do not recommend this school to anyone.
I think Coronado has wonderful teachers who care about the children.
In fifth grade, my daughter had a wonderful teacher who really turned her around. Coronado keeps changing administration-if they could keep a consistent staff, they would really soar.
Our family has been enrolled with Coronado since 2003-04 school year. I have three students, two with 504 plan needs. I have fought, cried, complained and been labeled a 'problem parent' because of the lack of apparent concern for the child being left behind by their peers. The apparent lack of empathy for students needs, both emotional, social and academic has been a concern of mine since the beginning.
Coronado has changed over the last year. New administration has been a large part of this change. For better or worse, we need to all get on the same page and keep Coronado a great school for our children's sake.
The quality of academic programs are lacking. Apparently they have adopted 'Langford learning'. It is setting the kids up for failure. The kids are not being held accountable soon enough. It is resulting in unaccountable, irresponsible kids! The availability of extracurricular activities are also lacking. I have tried being an involved parent but am being ignored. There is no communication from but only a handful of teachers. I am extremely disappointed in this school and would not recommend this school to anyone!
Great School. Excellent teachers! If your child is falling behind, teachers will keep in contact with you via email. Great all around school.
There seems to be a lack of consistency from one teacher to the next due to a lack of structured academic programs. There isn't any school-wide discipline plan. The expectations vary greatly from one class to another both academically and behaviorally. Some parents are constant complainers and get their way at the school and district. Our school is losing some great teachers because of mistreatment they receive from some of the parents and the lack of support from the administration. The whole district seems to be in disarray with recalls of school board members, difficulty finding a superintendent, and terminations of principals. Due to this lack of professionalism I am searching for another school for my daughter.
Moved here from Nor Cal. I have a 4th and 1st grader in Coronado. I was used to more diversity in the student body. The teachers have been great making my kids feel welcome. This was better than another school in the same district. Music program is a nice addition not available where we came from.
