This school 'bullies' special education children to the point that their parents pull them out. Many special needs children that belong in this area have been forced to other schools. This school does not want special needs children and their constant excuse is 'we do not have the resources for these children.' My son went to kindergarten and the summer school program 4 year later. I do not recommend this school for special needs children - and it is a clear case of discrimination!
There are a number of excellent teachers in this school, but also some mediocre ones. Not all teachers on the honors track are good, forcing you to choose between good teacher or higher-level class. If your child is musically inclined, you may wish to go elsewhere: this school changed band teachers and the band program went from great to poor.
I went to this school over ten years ago and wanted to say to the comment from a parent that this school has always been safe, And never did any of the faculty threaten to put us in doc. We as kids never even thought about that place being there. And yes there are some (wide economic backgrounds) as he put it, meaning im sure there are some poor kids living close so there may be trouble. Not true, we all just want to better our selves. This school is safe, My little bro goes there and has done very well!!
The band program is amazing. Absoulute wonderful principal, keep up the good work!
We could not be more pleased with the progress our daughter has made at Coronado. The teachers and faculty are so very patient and caring. We really feel as though they truly care about the well-being of our child's education. We are so grateful for the excellent leadership that Mrs. Nelson has brought to the school as well. Many thanks and a heartfelt recommendation from us!
Great teachers. Facilities are adequate considering the wide economic backgrounds of the neighboring homes. Bullying, improper behaviour, etc., is not tolerated. Because of its proximity to the correctional institution, it's receiced a bad rap, however because of this old negative perception, the newly hired principlal took the bull by the horns and increased hall monitors, security guards etc., to combat this negative perception along with low tolerance for innaprpriate behaviour. It is one of the safest environments that a parent could ask for. I would quickly recommend Coronado to anyone.
We had the best experience with this school for our two boys. Coronado has high academic standards, great teachers, and lots of parent involvement. The highest number and amount of parent volunteers that you will find anywhere. Also, the school has new great leadership that can handle anything. OK art program. General music program lacking due to instructor's low expectations & musicality. Loud and noisy lunchroom could be improved. Nice campus but some improvements to school grounds ie play structures should be made.
The teachers are very concientious. The school is secure and well monitored. My students have been challenged to give their best and grow throught the year.
