Corona Creek is an excellent school. We recently moved here from out of state and feel so lucky that this is our new school. The teachers and parents are very involved. Teachers are very easy to approach and get in touch with when there are concerns. We love it here!

Corona Creek is a terrific elementary school. The new principal is well-liked to teachers and students, and very experienced. The teachers are engaged and hard-working. The parents are very involved. The parents actively volunteered and were very involved in each classroom. And the kids are generally great, or working hard at being great. This school is truly a community effort, and the community seems to recognize it's got a good thing going. A very strong school academically, and sought-after by many. Great learning atmosphere. Parents of students here generally push hard, so it can be a competitive environment. Principal and teachers are very accessible and caring.

The staff, administration and parents are all there for the kids. My fourth child is in second grade now and my oldest who is 21 is in college and an avid reader & excellent student and I know that it is because of the education they received there.

When one loves what it does, the result can only be a 5 stars rating. Dr, Mahoney and his team are a dedicated team of champions providing our kids with the best available education despite the hard times in 2009

Corona Creek sets high expectations for their students and teachers. It's very professional, yet very caring at the same time. The administration and teachers are top notch with very little turnover. I would highly recommend this school to any parent.

Posted July 6, 2006

My daughter has been at Corona Creek K-3rd grade & will now be entering 4th grade. We have been extremely happy with the school layout placed in a neighborhood, fenced & a good visitor check in policy. Academically my daughter is thriving with each new teacher. Parent involvement is amazing & because of this the school has been able to continue with smaller class sizes, band, enrichment programs, music, art & many others. We fill very lucky to have our daughter in Corona Creek School.

Corona Creek is a very strong school because of its wonderful leadership in Dr. Mahoney, and the caring and committed teachers that work there. Very high expectations are held for all students and teachers work hard to help their students achieve. Their approach may be too structured and phonics based for some but the school motto, 'Relentlessly pursuing success for all' goes hand in hand with this academic focus.

Great School, good teachers, high standards, lots of parent involvement. Good music program. We spent K-3 at this school hated to leave. Only complaint might be that rules are maybe too strict.

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.
