Welcome to Our Community!

Located in the heart of the village, CUSD serves 2,800 Preschool - adult transition students at four public schools: Coronado High School, Coronado Middle School, and Village and Silver Strand elementary schools. The nationally recognized Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) is a school-within-a-school located on the high school campus. CoSA provides an intense, pre-professional arts education in six conservatories to students from Coronado and all over San Diego
The mission of the district focuses on quality education for life: Through rigorous academic standards, high expectations, and a coordinated curriculum, the Coronado Unified School District, in partnership with our community, will graduate students with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in higher education, careers, society, and life with the confidence to determine their futures.
The district prioritizes creating safe and inclusive environments where students can grow from wherever they are and thrive emotionally and academically. The community sets high expectations for its public schools and the district meets that challenge with robust experiences across multiple pathways, exceptional faculty, and a 98% graduation rate. Math, Science and English language curriculum are aligned from elementary through high school. Visual and performing arts experiences begin in elementary school and culminate in AP arts courses and CoSA programs at CHS. The district is expanding both engineering and world language curriculum at the elementary level to prepare students for advanced and college level courses in high school. 
Many of Coronado’s business owners, leaders, and elected officials are CHS graduates. And CUSD families are often multi-generational, with many current students attending the same schools as their parents once did. CUSD serves two navy bases within the district boundaries and has a 41% military student population. Military students, who move on average every two to three years, bring diverse perspectives and experiences into their classrooms. The district has a robust partnership with the US Navy, including Military Family Life Counselors on all campuses and a dedicated School Liaison Officer. 
CUSD is uniquely positioned as sharing the same geographical border as the city, resulting in collaborations that improve services and opportunities for both students and residents. In addition to active, engaged parents, the district benefits from strong partnerships with the city government, local businesses, Chamber of Commerce, and active civic service organizations. The district is also supported by the Coronado Schools Foundation, which raises funds to provide enhanced learning experiences for all students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and the arts. 
District facilities are well-maintained and support public events such as the Coronado Island Film Festival and other community programs open to the public. A joint-use agreement between the district and the city provides for public access and resident use of facilities such as athletic fields, playgrounds, gym, tennis courts, auditoriums, etc. that contribute to community wellness.
A crown jewel among the district facilities is the world-class Brian Bent Memorial Aquatics Center. The BBMAC is the home of the CHS Islander swim and water polo teams, as well as middle and high school PE classes. The versatile facility, which includes two pools and access to work-out rooms and fields, also hosts numerous college and club teams for training blocks throughout the year. 
The schools and the community have been knit together since the district was established in 1913. It takes a village to connect, challenge and champion every student every day, and to prepare students for college and careers after CUSD . Together, with our community, we are educating the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and citizens.
