As a student currently attending Corona, I believe that this school has a very good academic program and also offers many honors and AP courses. However, they seem to be lacking decent math teachers, particularly for the higher level math classes. Overall, the teaching quality is high but there are a few below average teachers. The music program is excellent and the marching band is undoubtly best in state. Corona also offers a variety of clubs and has a very good sports department. But overall, Corona is a fine school to attend.
CDS has an excellent administrative staff, they are truly concerned for the pupils. The baseball teams are amazing! The choirs are top notch. Our family has had an awesome experience at CDS, we will miss CDS when we move.
I believe that Corona is an excellent school and that students get a well rounded education. There are many extra curricular activities. One area that does concern me us the Spanish program. The school is aware of this concern by several parents but nothing seems to changing. The language is geared toward the Spanish of Spain not Mexico. That does not make sense to me us our proximity to Mexico. We have been told that successful studentds from the Corona Spanish program go on to win awards and competitions but we feel the program needs to be geered to the majority.
This is an excellent high school whose academics are superb. The honors program is unlike anyother.
Great programs for our kids. Daughter and son both excelled at Corona. Music and honors programs among the best -- probably best in the State. Certainly the band program is the best without question. Good level of parent involvment. Met many and engaged ourselves
My daughter is a senior at CDS High School. She is academically gifted, and has great support in the offering of advanced (AP) and Honors courses, and in college/career counseling. CDS ranks very well in district tests. I have also met many teachers and administrators at CDS who have been teaching or working there for 15 - 20 years. That says something positive about the principal and the academic/behavioral climate of the school. My only complaint would be the school's huge size - which is not CDS' fault. They manage almost 3,000 with great aplomb.
Corona del Sol High School is located in South Tempe. Corona provides one the highest quality educational experiences while offering a full range of extra curriculuar activities. The quality of all programs is one of the best in the TUHSD.
This school is fine if your child has no learning issues or A.D.D. If they do forget it. Also this school is great if your family makes a lot of money.
Fantastic school...very diverse student body - full of high achievers
My daughter's experience at Corona del Sol has been excellent. They are a well organized school with highly experienced teachers. I am frequently impressed with the programs that Corona offers.
Two sons graduated from Corona del Sol and now my granddaughter is about to graduate. This has been a great school in all ways, academically, sports, music, etc. I'm in awe of the quality of your choral presentations. They are consistently outstanding and so professional. Thank you, Corona del Sol!
Corona del Sol is a fabulous school! The faculty and staff are dedicated and involved. The student population is diverse and enthusiastic.
Imagine a school where teachers teach with enthusiasm, guidance counselors really care and administration pays attention to what kida and parents say. Although student population is big (about 3200, I think), my child never got lost. Teachers call parents back! Guidance remembers your name. Administration is involved, concerned and participatory. Extracurricular activities are varied, well-supervised and wonderful. My experience with this school was nothing but strong and positive. We had to leave CdS because of a family move and, boy, do we miss it. As a parent who has experienced CdS and now,a different school, I'm confident in saying, 'There's no place like CdS! There's no place like CdS! There's no place like CdS!'
Corona is one of the best schools in Arizona. It's a 5A school with (As of '04-'05) 2800 students. It has excellent programs in both academics and sports, and offers literally almost a hundred or more clubs to join. The performing arts are also brilliant, with four full bands, orchestra, piano classes, guitar, entire percussion classes, and a developing world music (Better known as Steel Drums) class. An excellerated program is also offered, which includes honors and AP courses. Every year it has many National Merit Scholars. Overall, this is a great school with tons of parental support and a great atmosphere for any family!
Corona del sol has been a very good school for my two teens. It appears to be a safe evironment with good follow up from the school regarding attendance or problems with schooling. I was impressed that they are strict on checking after the kids who missed school and have been happy to participate on the whole when contacted about your child's progress.
