There is no question that education is changing, and with it, teachers must change too. The fact is Coronado has and always will set the bar high for its students, and staff. Coronado is a "hub" of activitiy. It is at the forfront of challenging students with the new Common Core Standards; this school provides productive outlets such as athletics, clubs, Odessy of Mind competition, Math Counts competition, and community outreach. Coronado is not just a school, but an extension of community and family. When a student, a faculty member or an entire family needs help, Coronado is there. Teachers, administrators, parents, and volunteers give selflessly without recognition so others can thrive. Sure, no school is perfect. Coronado could use upgrades in technology; laptops, video and athletic equipment. However, as always, this school knows how to do more with less. Everyone pitches in. Coronado values its students; it values diversity, creativity, and its critical thinkers. Students that leave for high school return with smiles, and a welcome "thank you" to their former teachers. It's a great feeling. But it's all part of the Coronado Cougar way!
