I would recommend this school to everyone . I am beyond pleased with the things my son is learning in kindergarten . He is more than ready for first grade. I am very happy with his teacher and how she challenges him to keep in interested.

Growing up in NSB, my wife and I had good vibes about this place. We had been away overseas and out West and were happy to have our kids there when we returned. Problem is things have changed. Our child had a wonderful teacher for KG and first grade -then things went down hill for next two grades. This may have been due to the reassignment of the former principal. For instance, we were not notified about problems our kid was experiencing until we bumped into the teacher at special functions. Then we were given a laundry list -along with very subjective statements. After this we demanded regular conferences. We also discovered a bully situation that was not being addressed. We noticed that teachers blatantly played favorites with certain pet students. Something that really surprised us was the aloof nature of the parents here. I'm still trying to understand where this comes from but it says something about a lack of people schools that may be supported by the school.

Boutique-like feel, with prof'l caring teachers. If your child is advanced you will probably have to supplement some at home. The PE, Art and Music teachers are great. The library is great, media center fine and the science lab is great. The negative is as of 2010 fall, a new principal was assigned, who shares her time w/ Chisolm.I have asked her direct questions about things going on in the school she has been unable to answer, and has not got back to me later time as promised. Other parents I have spoken to have shared similar experiences. She is nice, but it doesn't seem her "head" is in the school. The teachers are supposed to do leveling of students by ability, but we only experienced this in Mrs. Wassem's Kindergarten, the other teachers teach to the median so far. This is where strong leadership and holding teachers to task as a principal would be useful. There is no gymnasium, so the outdoor play area is sandy and their shoes get ruined and they come home full of bug bites if you don't put something on them in the warm weather. Overall, w e went to Sacred Heart two years and compared to that it blows it away, but I believe you should always strive to excel even more.

If you have a child that doesn't need much guidance...this school will be fine, but never exceptional. My daughter did fine but as soon as my son started kindergarten it was one issue after another. Thank goodness for an amazing charter school nearby where both of my kids can thrive!

When my grandaughter went there she loved going to school....the teachers were great. I'm sure it hasn't changed.

I am sorry to say that overall Coronado was a very bad school. They lied about some of the classes they offered. There resource department was not as helpful as we had hoped for. We chose to home school our child from now on. I feel we are better at teaching then they were.

Coronado is a small school with a wonderful staff. The teachers honestly care about the children. The principal knows every child by name. Parents are always welcome as visitors or volunteers.

I am a parent of twins, a boy and a girl. They are in second grade. I have been impressed with Coronado Beach Elementary since our kindergarten orientation. The entire staff is helpful and friendly. The school is an 'A' school. The teachers provide the extra care and attention that every child deserves. My daughter is in a program there to provide her the help she needs for a learning diability. The classes she attends has helped her tremendously. Extra curricular activities of all kinds are offered. I will be sad when my children leave the school.

Since relocating from Miami and placing my first and third graders in Coronado, I have been exceptionally pleased with the school. The school and the teachers offer many incentives for the children to accelerate in a variety of areas. The music, PE and art teachers are fabulous as well as the media specialist and all of the volunteers. Coronado Beach Elementary is a very family oriented school and the PTA is very innovative in their fundraising efforts, which has made this past year a pleasure! I would like to give particular thanks to Mrs. Howell and Mrs. Florio for all they have done to make my children feel welcome and for all of their hard work and care!
