Coronado Unified School District Reviews

If you were born and raised in Coronado, you probably believe it's an excellent high school, but if you have had an opportunity to live on the East coast, you likely have a different opinion. Without question, CHS is a good school. It's safe and the teachers care about their students. However, for extracurriculars, it's truly 'pay to play'...literally. Because of the way the school is set up, you cannot participate in the arts (theater, music, etc.) and play a sport. Very little diversity. Counselors have very little involvement in your college preparation / application process, because everyone is expected to go out and pay for a consultant to handle it for you. Facilities are aging and there is little investment in improving them...the roof in the gym has leaked for years. Nonetheless, you will get a good education here, but it could be so much better!

I have 2 students at Coronado HS. We are a military family who are only here for a short time and can't wait to leave. Elitist attitudes, unsympathetic to military children and the challenges faced with learning from several different schools, lack of support. For an "elite" school, bragging about having students with only 50% proficiency in Math is pathetic! Don't waste your money living here. There are much better choices in SoCal
Overall, the school is excellent. Due to the wealth of so many on the island, many of the kids are very entitled and judgemental, unfortunately - but that's bad parenting. Not much diversity and sadly, not welcoming to many of the new kids. Most teachers are excellent, with a few waiting to retire and have short-timers syndrome. Then, there are a few teachers who are too hard on the students, which ultimately affects grades and impacts college acceptance.
