My school is the best experience I have ever had regarding education, I came from other country and it was a challenge to fit in in this new environment, but Coronado students are really charismatic and there is no hate for anyone, all of us are Thunderbirds as a whole. The majority of the teachers know what to do in class. The secretaries, counselors and coordinators are really helpful. Coronado High School is a great school, I honestly think that it is one of the best schools to attend in El Paso.

This school is probably the best school to send your kids to in the El Paso area. Even people from the other side of the border in Mexico send their kids here. It has a great learning environment and the students are really nice. Everyone talks to each other and everyone has enormous school spirit. Best school ever!

Im a current student at Coronado High School. Coronado is a good school but it is not great. There is a lot of students who dont even try and the standard has gone down. Im a member of the IB program and it is an excellent program. Discipline at Coronado is a joke, there is a lot of what we call 'cholos.' There are many great teachers and many of them have a masters degree which is outstanding. The one thing I love about Coronado is that there is really no cliques, everyone hangs out with everyone and it is a really friendly environment. The new additions of D and E buildings are very nice and the principal is excellent but the school does need a higher standard on discipline.

Love the teachers, and people there. Everything seems to be a great balance there. The teachers seem to like teaching.

I m a CHS graduate who has started college and I am proud to have gone to such a well-rounded school. Thanks to Coronado s diversity (due to Westside El Paso s demographics) I have had a smooth transition into the cultural diversity at my college. For the most part, teachers there are good and if not good at least caring. I know very few people in college who had high school teachers with master s degrees, while most of mine did. I went to Coronado after 10 years at a prestigious private school, and I can say with certainty that it was a great choice to continue my education. The AP and IB programs are excellent, but I know kids that took regular courses and still made it into respectable universities. Thank you, Coronado.

The school is over-crowded and it caters mostly to the upper crust and lower tier students. The truth is,average students receive mediocre support. I can count on one hand the really good teachers and some of them are gone now. Discipline and attendance checks are a joke. I had to have my son finish elsewhere because of the lack of teacher support and administrative apathy. Don't get me wrong, the principal is great, but her underlings undermine her.

Only school in the city with an IB program. CHS emphasizes discipline, balance between extra-curricular activites and college-level curriculum. Teachers are caring and dedicated,as are the parents. Great overall!

I'm in the IB program at Coronado. There's no doubt that Coronado is the best school. There are many clubs such as student council, fencing, debate, mock trial, sports, and much more. The teachers are qualified and genuinely care about their students. I give coronado 2 thumbs up and 5 stars.

Coronado's academic excellence is noteworthy. It provides the opportunity for students to participate in the International Baccalaureate Program. Its High-Q teams have competed nationally and its Academic Decathlon Teams have consistently gone to state competition. This year Coronado was the only local school to have two National Merit Scholars.

This school is possibly the best in El Paso. College almost seems easy at times for me after the preparation my teachers gave me. The fine arts program is undersupported, yet the most succesful in the area. The orchestra, band, and choir have all preformed worldwide with high honors. The academics are also incredible. It is the only IB school in El Paso. Although over crowded, this school is definitely above the rest in El Paso.
