This school has the potential to be great. I just dont feel that the school gets very much support, so according some standards it lacks. If the school had more donors & recognition the students could have better opportunities to better their future. The support system lacks as well, kids make mistakes that's apart of life they just need guidance. If Coretta was supported like schools for example Westlake, the school could afford students a greater chance to be successful!

It's a great school. The building is beautiful and well kept for the most part. The majority of the girls are friendly and welcoming to new students. The teachers are very respectful, down to earth, and great listeners. The staff is all about achieving success while maintaining a balanced social, emotional, and learning environment. It is easy to learn and connect with teachers and students because Coretta is a small school. If a student needs help, the school provides a plethora of opportunities for students to get ahead, catch up on work, and/or gain further understanding of the work given.
