    Horrible principal. Staff turnover exceptionally high. Over 8 teachers and an assistant vice principal have left this school in 2012 alone. No consistency with the admin and the elementary school district superintendent is completely ignorant of the problems of this school by choice.

    Coronado Hills has an excellent teaching staff principal and vice principal. The school is newly built so now the gorgeous building is fit to encase all the great people that work within it. My three daughters have gone to Coronado for the last six years. My oldest has gone from kindergarten and will soon be graduating into middle school. She has done very well at Coronado and gotten a lot of support with Talented and gifted programs as well as many other after school programs they offer. I love the fact that there is always someone to answer my questions and take the time to listen and give me a comfortable atmosphere to express myself. I often volunteer in the classrooms and have been made to feel very welcomed.

    I am a foster parent of four children and have had five children go through Coronado Hills. I am very pleased by the individual attention each child has recieved. They are a fantastic school and each and every staff member from the costodian to the principal place every effort to make lerning and school a great place. They are always willing tp set up an academic plan for each child are great at handling dicipline and instilling school pride. The school is diverce and have many extra curricular activites. I am proud to have Coronado Hills as our local school.
