We had 3 children at this school, now we have none and are so much happier. Bullying is ignored, almost encouraged! You go to the principals office and get a candy bar. The principal expressed several times to various parents that GT wasn't her priority, 2 of our children were in the GT program. When we first started at this school there was a different principal and it was a different story, amazing school, great ratings, we were so proud our kids had the opportunity to go there. Now I won't recommend this school to anyone, parent involvement has decreased dramatically, we know so many families who have left this school and are so much better off! It's sad, there are some good teachers there but even most of them are leaving. The school is unrecognisable from the school it was when we started 6 years ago.

Today the principal at Coronado Elementary was reported to have emailed her teachers that the inauguration today was not an appropriate subject or learning tool for students. Is this America? Do teachers not have a right and a responsibility to teach students about the Democratic process? If this is any indication of the direction of public education, it is a sad day for America.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Perhaps it is the way public education is focused on standardized testing and not truly developing the talents and competencies individuals possess. I don't fault the teachers - it truly is the system that is broken.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Direction needs to be communicated to the parents and to the children. An activity sheet sent home is not homework. The activities are not skill level appropriate and are geared to the average.

As parents we could not be more disappointed with the quality of differentiated instruction and the improper use of technology. Technology seems to be integrated into the classroom as a classroom management tool vs. a tool to enhance and individualize instruction.


Amount of homework: Agree

With the Common Core in place, it is very tough on older Parents to understand. The person who invented this... should post their scores from Kindergarten to Senior. If 100% scored perfect, then we stick with Common Core, any missed scores.. then we go back to the traditional ways of learning!

Develops character: Agree

The Principle, Mrs. P is very much involved and is open to communication and resolution.

This is a bad school. We had a good teacher for first, second, and third grades and an average teacher for fourth. However, a long-term sub in fifth was a bad teacher. She yelled at and humiliated kids. There was no learning, and all work was sent home as homework. After multiple complaints, the school still ignored the problems we were facing. We have now moved to another school, and are happier. My child also faced bullying ignored by the school's staff. She was advenced, but was unchallenged, even in the GT program.

We love Coronado! This school is a GT magnet school for the district, and it shows throughout the entire school. The school is great at teaching social skills as well as traditional academics. The entire school is on a token-system for encouraging positive behavior. The teachers all are familiar with the social/emotional needs of gifted learners as well as the academic needs. Our child hasn't been successful in other environments, but he is very successful at Coronado. The entire school is friendly and the teachers and administrators know every child and family by name. Chess club is the most popular activity, and Legos are the most-played-with toy in after-care. Parent involvement is high, but it doesn't feel cliquish. The school is also proactive and attentive to children on IEPs. The school psychologist is great. They really focus on the needs of the individual child, and will provide services if they deem it will benefit a child, regardless of whether or not the child is on an IEP or 504 plan. I can't say enough positive things about this school. It's such a positive and inclusive learning environment.

We love this school. The gifted and talented program is superb! Also the teachers are wonderful, encouraging my children to reach their full potential. We couldn't be happier with this school and would recommend it without hesitation.
