My daughter went here for her junior year of high school. We are a Navy family, so she's used to making new friends everywhere she goes, and has never had a problem with it. That is, until she joined the Coronado High School "community." The first week at school, the local kids were cold and cruel. She would come home crying, and she is a tough girl. My husband and I thought that it would progressively get better as the year continued, but it never did. We then found out that there were webpages created, such as CHS Confessions page, which was taken down, to bully fellow students. In one of her classes, she would be left alone to work on partner work, making it so that she would have to work with the teacher. She only did one year there, and if she stayed, she would probably have chosen to be homeschooled for her senior year. If you are moving to the San Diego area, I would recommend a totally different school. One thing we did find is that she had great teachers.
Great programs, great principal, fantastic teachers and a variety of opportunities. My daughter is thriving at this school socially, emotionally and intellectually.
There are some amazing teachers, and some not-so-dedicated teachers, just like at any school. My child also has to deal with the strong bias among students regarding anyone new or less affluent. While the Coronado HS has some wonderful opportunities in sports and academics, it can be a very tough place to fit in.
Coronado is a great school overall. It is well rounded in that the academics have several different levels that push everyone to be better, great sports, and excellent arts programs. Our arts school, CoSA is top rated and the ceramics program is just about state of the art. The teachers take a different approach to learning than many other schools I've heard of. They will flat out tell you if they are just teaching so,etching because it is required and will discuss just about anything with you. The teachers are easy to trust and, though slightly insane, really do care about their students. The biggest problem is the divide between the sports players, ROTC kids, and the CoSA kids.
