I felt this school prepared me well for my secondary education. Amongst the teachers and staff, there a few who are truly, incredibly passionate about their work and improving the lives of young students. While the arts do not receive nearly as much funding as the sports programs, the artistic community on this campus is rapidly growing and offers great programs in music making and education. Parent involvement is incredibly high, with nearly every parent making some form of contribution, making it the norm of the culture in which the school exists. Overall, I thorougly enjoyed my time at this school and would hope that others feel the same way.

Once you find your passion/calling at CdM, it's an amazing school. My passion was choir, and joining the choir department at CdM was the best decision I made throughout high school. The Arts here are fantastic and really allow you to develop your performance skills.

From an academic standpoint, there are a variety of honors and AP courses that students can take. AP classes are difficult, especially if the teachers are mediocre or hard to work with, but AP exams are usually easy because of the level of preparation done in each class.

CdM does a great job of giving you as many opportunities as possible, you just have to go and take them!
I graduated from Corona Del Mar High School in 2017. Now, as a sophomore in college I appreciate all the tools that the academic environment and teachers provided me with to be prepared for my classes. However, the social atmosphere of the school is extremely competitive and it is difficult to make true friends. Some teachers were really great at being there for their students regarding both life and school problems, however some teachers didn't seem to care about their students. The clubs are great but there is little diversity at the school as most of the students are white and from affluent families.
