Corona Del Sol High School
Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

I would say that half or more of the teachers Corona are effective in teaching the material and motivating the students. There are many examples of the better teachers having left with other teachers remaining who really have no business in the classroom, but remain for historical reasons.

There is definitely no a lot of homework at this school. Most of the time, my kids have had no homework.

Favoritism is very much in vogue at Corona. Children of very active or influential parents will get preferential treatment.

Given it's size (about 2500). You can expect the same level of teacher involvement as you would a small community college...that means the squeaky wheel gets the grease...

There is really nothing about Corona that fosters respect in the student body at large.

Any school in America that finds our flag offensive needs to be shut down!!! I'm appalled by the recent decision this school has made. As a person who was formally in the military I think it is disrespectful to the country, how dare you!!

Corona del Sol has fantastic academic programs and excellent music programs! Principal Brent Brown provides thoughtful leadership and is very supportive of academic and arts programs. The school offers students the opportunity to be well prepared for university work. My older son was a National Merit Scholar and received multiple academic scholarship offers. My younger son is involved in Marching Band, Steel Drum band, and arts programs. Ms. Reed and Mr. Wanta are excellent math teachers and their students do very well on AP exams. Ms. Blechacz, Mr. Doyle, and Mr. Morgan are outstanding teachers and their students get excellent AP test scores. Ms. Johnson and Ms. Gile are fantastic English teachers. Mr. Duplessis and Mr. Werner lead the Marching band, which is 190 students strong in 2015-2016. They are exceptionally talented leaders who know how to motivate and inspire teenagers. Mr. Werner also leads the Corona del Sol Steel Drum Band--the largest in Arizona. Corona del Sol is large enough to provide a wide variety of opportunities to students. However, the individual programs are excellent and provide a small community feel. I highly recommend, without any reservations, Corona del Sol high school!

Academics, especially AP and Honors Courses, are challenging, but students are given the tools and support they need to succeed.

My experience at Corona del Sol is that the students are extremely respectful to adults, teachers and other students. The Administration and Teachers respect the students as well. Many of the teachers at Corona del Sol are also graduates of Corona del Sol. There is a true spirit of family and tradition.
