My son went here as a 7th & 8th grader. I felt my son wasn't challenged and the teachers had the nerve to complain that he was disruptive in class after I repeatedly requested he be placed in advanced classes (and was denied) to keep him focused and stressed to them that he needs to be challenged & kept active. I have ran across a couple of teachers that are helpful and want to give a little extra. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone and I know of many other parents that feel the same way.

Our children went here for the first half of their Kingergarden and 1st grade school year. The Kindergarden teacher was great. On the other hand the classroom was overcrowded and chaotic. The kids were all over the place as far as skill level. I felt like my daughter was getting lost in the crowd. I knew she was capable of more than she was given. My son was in the first grade and is a excellent reader. He also was not being challenged. The instruction in his room was very liberal and the other three 1st grade classes were all teaching different styles and at different levels. Everyone was very nice but since I switched them to a Franklin school they have not only improved academically, but their ability to focus, and their work ethic has also become positive. Thus helping them for their 'short' career as students.

With all of the problems going on around the world today, you would think that safety would be an important issue. Not at a Coronado. Did you know that anyone can walk right into the school without goinf through the office. Doors are left open and unlocked all the time. A disaster is just waiting to happen.

Coronado is well on its way to establishing itself as a front runner in providing quality education as well as a safe, encouraging environment. We moved into the neighborhood to give our kids the opporunity to attend this great school. It's also a great community to raise a family in!!

Mr. Williamson and Ms. Godfrey are a teaching team that is teaching sixth grade right now. They are both awesome teachers and will challenge the kids no matter what level they are on. Personal responsibility and rewards are a huge part of their classrooms. Mrs. Collinson teaches 5th grade. She has many innovative to make learning fun and teaches personal responsibility and lifeskills that they will need as adults.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
