Even though Coronado competes with magnet schools and private schools in the number of National Merit Semifinalists each year, our football team gets more publicity than the 5-10 students who have just scored in the top 1% of all high school students. Zero mention of their names. Newest principle has mentioned he doesn't want other kids to feel inferior.

I've always heard great things about Coronado. Before transferring I heard they were number one in the valley. Coronado supposedly had great teachers, a lot of school spirit, awesome programs, and barely any student conflict. When the school year started I quickly realized how inaccurate everyone was. This school has way too many students, therefore the teaching isn't the best nor the programs. I also quickly realized how arrogant the teachers and the students are. Majority of the people at this school are not welcoming at all and act like they're superior to everyone else. This school does have a ton of school spirit, but that's about it. The school overall is a pretty average school in everything else, even though everyone at Coronado is convinced they're the best. Personally, I recommend sending your child to attend a school in the Summerlin area. Bishop Gorman Roman Catholic School, Faith Lutheran Christian School or either Palo Verde would be better a choice in my opinion. The area is just as nice and I personally think the people at these Summerlin schools are way more likable/nicer than the staff/students at Coronado.

The counseling is mediocre, and the teaching is not so good either, due to the large number of students.

This is the Best public High School in the Henderson area. You will be glad and happy you did right choice sending your kids to this school. Those who give low rating are still sending their kids to this school. So use your judgement and make a wise decision sending your loved one to this awesome school.

High school with the highest drug use in the Las Vegas valley....reading the other reviews I was shocked that this wasn't mentioned. Then I noticed that the school reviews the posts....Get honest Coronado, let parents know what they're about to encounter.

My son attended Coronado beginning his sophmore yr. I read lots of wonderful reviews about this school, the staff &students. My son worked hard to be on the honor roll. During the beginning of his junior year, he was placed in the wrong classes. I thought the counselors & teachers new best but, he had AP classes instead of honor classes, senior government class, math and science classes that required prerequisites that he had not taken. The 1st two weeks were no problem. After the 3rd week, I noticed a dropped in grades, more importantly a drop in attitude. He was always a happy go lucky individual, but then I noticed a child who carried the weight of the world on his shoulder. When I called at the beginning of the 4th week, the VP told me he wouldn't change his classes & would change them in January. "If he fails, oh well. I can't do anything about it." I have met more parents who have pulled their children out of this school than any other in the valley. I would never recommend this school. My son ended up losing his scholarships and graduating a semester late because of the incompetence of several individuals. Ask around. Is this what you want for your child?

I graduated from this high school in 2009. Several of my friends have siblings currently attending. It seems to have remained about the same as when I went there. It is considered a top school in the Las Vegas valley. It's got a good variety of after school activities, sports, spirit days, and academics. Students were very nice to everyone. Very few bullies. I can think of two fights in four years. One involved a flip flop flying across the courtyard. The other a bit nastier, but nothing crazy. Doors that were supposed to be locked, always were. Very safe school. Lots of AP courses, no IB. Academics were generally pretty strong at Coronado. I can think of quite a few people who went to schools such as NYU, Brown, Northwestern, Yale, and UC Berkeley. But it's also really easy to slip through Coronado in basic classes. This is a rich school, but everyone was really chill about it. Some activities have a few Cali/Arizona trips. About $1000/year for 6 or 7 trips? I think some sports got it for free. Band & Colorguard didn't. Debate didn't. Oh... the football team was terrible... I'm pretty sure it is still terrible. Overall a very, very good school.

I have a Freshman daughter that attended Coronado High school, I was disappointed with the inability or possibilities for parent involvement.

I honestly cannot give this school more than 3 stars because I have no idea what goes on at this school. Since moving to Nevada I have never felt connected to either Bob Miller or Coronado High School. That doesn't mean they aren't good schools just that there isn't much opportunity for parent involvement and there aren't any parent conferences unless you have a problem child. I just felt like I was the one who always had to send emails to my daughters teachers because they made very little effort to get to know her or me. I felt like she was just a number; a face lost in the overcrowded school.

We are newly relocated to the area and have nothing but great things to say. We started communicating in February and completed the move at the end of the school year. The administration did a wonderful job in welcoming us to the area and showing us the great stuff they do. As we were completeing our move, they had tryouts and placements going on for next year. Not only did they ensure that the kids got into the tryouts but one of them had his equipment packed away. No problem, substitute equipment was provided. We have high hopes for the school and look forward to being involved with the community.

Every young girl wants to be a cheerleader.. unfortunately even if your child is a highly skilled dancer and has trained for many years, but you don't know the coaches or the politics or start sucking up early.. don't even try to get on this high schools below average squad. Your daughter will only be hurt and depressed after learning her fate. Oh and don't let her be anything but white, that's a Definate waste of time to even think about trying.. great way to build enthusiasm to incoming freshman

Honestly, Coronado High School needs to step up. They need to do something about their bullying problem because it hasn't changed. I'm not going to use any names, but I am the sister of a student who is being bullied. There have been many reports and complaints over the months about this issue and the school hasn't bothered to do anything about it. My mother went to the school to find out that the reason the school hasn't done anything about the issue is because they thought it stopped. If you don't stay informed with the students and people involved in bullying, how can you know that it really stopped? They always try to do something after its already too late and someone has been hurt. Coronado High School is not on my good list right now and I will continue to send in complaints for the sake of their students.

If you're new to the area, CCSD is one of the worst school districts in the country. Having said that, Coronado is the "BEST of the worst" overall. They stress high achievement in all areas. They have some really wonderful teachers who do their best to help their students succeed. Warning, though! They have an AWFUL math program. If your child wishes to advance and seeks a degree or profession in/related to the mathematics arena - stay away from this school. The local middle school teachers warn their 8th grade students who will be attending Coronado about the terrible math program and which Coronado teachers to avoid at all costs. It's a shame because the school is really great and the principal seems to take pride in his school. I just wish he would take more pride in the math program and recruit some top-notch teachers so that us parents - some with award winning and math honor students - wouldn't have to pay a math tutor to teach our children what they should be learning in the classroom at Coronado.

I moved to this area because I heard it was safe and was a newer school, so I thought it was a wise choice to send my son here his freshman year. I have to say I am dissapointed with the faculty and counslers. My sons struggled in his english & math classes and when I contacted the counsler and set up a meeting with his teachers, the first part of the meeting was the counsler grilling him if he was on drugs. Then the teachers said he didn't fool around in class, that basically he was just a wallflower and they never really even noticed him in class. He was there, they marked him present. How about some encouragement and trying to get him involved? They told me I should be monitoring his work on Parent Link. I was. They don't update it until days later after they moved on

My daughter is in her sophomore year at Coronado High School this year (2008-2009). I have been pleased with the overall education she has received. Within every school in America there are great teachers, good teachers and mediocre teachers, and Coronado is no exception. Mrs. Larsen, Mrs. Huffman, Mr. Moyes are raved about by my daughter. Mrs. Larsen teaches English and Creative Writing, Mrs. Huffman is the Forensics (Debate/Speech) Advisor, and Mr. Moyes brings History to life. I am grateful for these outstanding educators. The Principal is warm and friendly, the Office staff is knowledgable and the environment is safe. If I had one complaint it is that the school is in too fluent an area. Some students and parents would benefit with a reality check.

In this school there is too much stress. Teachers talk to you like if you don't get an A in their class then you will not get into college. The teachers don't know how to teach. They give you a new thing and expect you to do it. Then the next 5 minutes they give you a test. I do believe that this is a good school, however, the teachers schould be crrected.

We love CHS! My son is a sophmore and not very outgoing, but loves the school. He takes forensics (debate) and plays lacrosse. He takes the honors and AP classes and likes the instructors very much. Have not heard of any significant problems, not a clique school. Great all around HS. Thank you to the faculty and staff for a great job.

Coronado is the best school in the valley for education and saftey. It is located in a wealthy part of the valley and there is no gang violence and hardly and fights at that school. The asthetic programs at that school are far below Silverado and Green Valley's but that is the only bad mark.

Coronado High School is the best high school in Las Vegas. They have awesome academic programs, extracurricular activities, and teachers and faculty that always want to help. All of the departments are way above par when it comes to your childs education. No child is left behind and if a child falls behind the teachers will spend the extra time after school, before school, or even during their lunch to help if the child just asks. All in all Coronado High School is where your child will get the best education, oppurtunites, and help for the future.

I am not pleased with Coronado High at all. They are unaware of how their students are doing. The administration is not insinc with their students. Counslers and teachers need to be more on top of students that are falling behind before it is to late. Every child deserves encouragement and the belief that they too can succeed. Either the school has to many students or not enough teachers or counslers that really care about how these children will become fully educated to survive after high school. 'Students not left behind' is a joke. The administration and teachers will continue a student on to the next grade even though they have not passed their classes. Then when it comes time to graduate they tell them they dont have enough credits. Instead these children should be given encouragement and other resourses on how to improve where they are weak.

Excellent school. Our son arrived from a prestigious private school, and has found the class work comparable (especially the honors and AP) and he is more than adequately challenged. While a new school, the principal has great aspirations, which reflects in the quality of this school.

My children have been in the Clark County SD for over 16 years. This school is remarkably well run by Mr.Bay (principal). Student involvement is almost unbelievable. If I have one negative issue it would be a poor phone call return rate, both from teachers and administrators. If my son says he stayed late to do extra work, and I call the teacher for verification, it may be up to a week before I get a return call. Even if I have a call for the administration, counselors and such, if you get a return call, it's always at least a day or more later, even if it's a crucial question, such as a funeral/makeup work. Other than that, the students appear to love the school and the senior administration seems to truthfully want the kids to be involved and happy. Considering the teacher/student ratio, I feel the school excels at student/staff interaction. It's simply the parent/staff interaction that is lacking. A wonderful asset is the person who answers all calls, Randy. She is such a welcoming 'first impression' for any school. I will end with this: I travel 30 miles to work each day rather than have my child change from this school.
