I can't say enough wonderful things about Coronado HS. My daughter was a student who was very happy in the healthy environment. My daughter actually looked forward to Mondays. She loved her Counselor, teachers and Best Buddies Club, she was even trying to earn money so the special needs kids could build a garden. My daughter is in Heaven now, but I can tell you she was very happy with where she was and friends she made. Coronado was also there for my family. I will forever be grateful...
