Coronado High School is one of the newest high schools in the Lubbock Independent School District. The school was built in 1965 in three phases.

The first phase resulted in the construction of the practice gymnasium and Turff Room. The second phase was aimed at asbestos abatement, which was required by federal law. The third phase involved the addition of 20 new classrooms that replaced portable classrooms.

Coronado now boasts seven computer labs, and all computers are Internet-ready.

The school has 25 computers per lab, most of which are Dell personal computers.

The school has a strong sports program, including the traditional high school sports as well as golf and tennis programs.

Coronado advanced to post-district play in volleyball in 2000 and both the boys' and girls' basketball teams participated in district finals during that year. The Coronado athletic programs turn out consistently strong contenders.

Coronado has a choir, band and orchestra that lead the district in Sweepstakes Competitions. The school holds one of the longest-running winning records for a music department in the school district.

Coronado offers a number of dual-credit classes (high school and college credit earned in the same course), and about 60 percent of the graduating seniors advance to higher education, or a career-training structure.

In keeping with community spirit, Coronado has the largest blood drive in the district. Moreover, the school ranks fourth in the nation in giving to the March of Dimes.

The school also is the regional sign language school.

Coronado students score among the highest in mandatory Texas tests scores in the state. Also, the dropout rate is one of the lowest.

Coronado offers agricultural training, industrial technology curricula, Family and Career Training and Distributive Education programs.
