My daughter went here for her junior year of high school. We are a Navy family, so she's used to making new friends everywhere she goes, and has never had a problem with it. That is, until she joined the Coronado High School "community." The first week at school, the local kids were cold and cruel. She would come home crying, and she is a tough girl who has survived bullying from her "best friend." My husband and I thought that it would progressively get better as the year continued, but it never did. We then found out that there were webpages created, such as CHS Confessions page, which was taken down, to bully fellow students. In one of her classes, she would be left alone to work on partner work, making it so that she would have to work with the teacher. She only did one year there, and if she stayed, she would probably have chosen to be homeschooled for her senior year. If you are moving to the San Diego area, I would recommend a totally different school. One thing we did find is that she had great teachers.

Coronado is a great school overall. It is well rounded in that the academics have several different levels that push everyone to be better, great sports, and excellent arts programs. Our arts school, CoSA is top rated and the ceramics program is just about state of the art. The teachers take a different approach to learning than many other schools I've heard of. They will flat out tell you if they are just teaching so,etching because it is required and will discuss just about anything with you. The teachers are easy to trust and, though slightly insane, really do care about their students. The biggest problem is the divide between the sports players, ROTC kids, and the CoSA kids.

Coronado High offers an excellent learning enviornment for its students. The teachers show sincere interest in their students and are always more than willing to help before or after school. The administration is constantly ensuring the well being of their students. Coronado High offers enough extracirricular activities for everyone to enjoy, from sports to performing and visual arts to on campus clubs that offer volunteer oportunities. Of all the knowlege and information I've learned at Coronado High, the greatest was how to think. Definitely the best school in San Diego!

too many drugs and too much bulling that is related to the haves and the have-nots. Schoole administrator and Board intervention on this issue is not evident. Very elitist environment and way too much freedom and too little parental supervision. High degree of alcohol abuse and in-calssroom use of drugs. Too much emphasis on image not substance

Outstanding school in all areas. Caring teachers and administration, high standards, excellent and varied teaching styles and class offerings. Perfect size, beautiful location and facilities, top-notch extracurricular and sports opportunities, numerous awards and commendations. Without question, one of the best high schools in California.

This is a great school that teaches the students very well. Most of the students learn from the teachers and get high scores on the end of the year tests. The only thing I have to say is bad aboutthis school is the amount of homework given to each student every night. The teachers give too much homework to the students, and they give too myany test and quizes throughout the WEEK! The teachers at CHS definitally want their students to do good, but sometimes they need to give out less homework and quizes.

We loved this school. I just think it is strange that drugs and wealth are not mentioned as that is all I heard about before we got there.

I graduated from CHS, class of 2004 and I loved it. I grew up in Coronado and all of their schools are the best. The sports teams are wonderful, plenty of college prep and AP classes available, as well as a sense of community within the school. To top it off it is located on the beautiful island we locals like to call Paradise!

CHS has been a great challenge for my children. Many teachers are movitated and go the extra mile, even if they aren't paid a comparable wage. They lost a good handful of quality teachers last year to retirement and those moving on. AP classes are way too crowded. Sports of every kind offered. Counselors helpful and available -- as well as the principal. One front office worker tries her best to put people off. Well worth the expense of Coronado living!

This school is a real good school. I went there as a student and I feel I was very well prepared to go into the university. The teachers are great and the location is great! Now that I have a child I plan on enrolling her in this school.

CHS is a great HS overall. Renovations are ongoing that will make the facilities first-rate. The instructional quality is good, with plenty of AP course offerings. Some teachers don't do a very good job of hiding political agendas. If you are looking for equal opportunity performance arts programs, you won't find them at CHS. The existence of CoSA (Coronado School of the Arts), a highly specialized center for arts education, ensures it. CoSA brings in a large number of inter-district tranfers and corresponding additional state funding, but the effect has been to significantly weaken arts opportunities for the average student. One example is a band program that receives virtually no state funding and was decimated by the emergence of CoSA. A second example is that most/all lead parts in the annual school play are filled by CoSA students before any auditions are held for the rest of the student body.

Coronado High was just what the doctor ordered. We just moved here from Hawaii and my daughter was very unhappy with that. As soon as she entered Coronado she was embraced by the students and was invited to join COSA (A school for the perfoming Arts)The teachers are great, the students are awesome, the education is top notch. The only thing I would caution is educating your son or daughter about peer pressure. My daughter knows better and sticks with the COSA crowd.

We went to La Jolla unfortunately...the school quality is much higher at Coronado. The teachers, staff, community and parents are so much more supportive of every student. I know this from my continued research.


Posted February 28, 2004

Coronado High School is an amazing school. The teachers are very commited to teaching and all of them are extremely nice. I also like how there are many different programs for students to choose from. They have Cosa which is a cool drama program and they even have ceramics! They can also chose from different levels of Spanish and French.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
