Principal's Message

August 20, 2019

It is my sincerest pleasure to welcome back our returning families, and say “hello” to our newest Panthers! As Corona High School families, you are part of something extra special. The 2019-20 school year promises to be another great one in our extensive history.
As we hold on to our special traditions, we continue to look for new ways to enhance our students’ high school experience and to genuinely prepare them for life after graduation.

Through the district’s first STEM Academy, Corona High School offers various college and career readiness pathways that truly prepare our students for that next step following high school, including the only Aviation program in CNUSD and one of only a select few around
Southern California. In addition to rigorous academics, we offer a variety of leadership opportunities to allow those immeasurable soft skills to really flourish within our students.

As a member of one of the most competitive athletic leagues around, the Big VIII, our student-athletes have great opportunities to really showcase their talents on a grand platform. This year we welcome our newest program, boys and girls lacrosse.

This year we really want to focus on two key aspects of our school: culture and academic rigor. Corona High School has been around since 1896 and that has provided us a rich tradition that no other school in our district can claim. We are the namesake of our city
and our district (at least half) and that gives us great pride! With that, we want to ensure that we keep our culture at the forefront and continue promoting our Tradition of Excellence. Academically, we want to continue challenging our students to make them
better critical thinkers and problem solvers. To do so, we must focus on finding new ways to increase the rigor in all classrooms.

To stay informed, be sure to follow our various social media accounts, including my Twitter (@CoronaPrincipal), check our website regularly, download the free Corona High School app (we will be adding exciting new features this year to make this much more robust),
sign up for Parent Connect, and be sure to read my weekly principal’s newsletter, The Panther Prowl! And don’t forget, you can always pick up the phone and just give us a call with your questions.

Antonio Gonazalez, Ed.D.
PROUD Principal
