Welcome to Coronado High School Guidance
The Coronado High School Guidance Office is open from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday. Students are always welcome to drop by before or after school, or during their lunch period to speak with their counselor. They may also sign up in the Guidance Office to meet with their counselor during the school day.
Parents and guardians who would like to schedule an appointment time should contact their counselor or the Office via email or by phone at 480-484-6800 to schedule an appointment.
Throughout the course of the school year, counselors conduct informational meetings and/or workshops for parents at each grade level to assist families in navigating the student's academic year. Parents are encouraged to attend these meetings. In addition, counselors will meet with all students to aid them in the planning of their high school career and post -secondary planning and opportunities. As a team, we feel that it is very important that students begin advocating for themselves in high school. We ask that parents and guardians support their students by encouraging them to make the initial contact with their counselor.
The role of the counselor is to help you get the information you need to make important decisions in a stress free fashion. This site was developed as a resource for you, with links to information on college and career planning, deadlines and time lines, and tips on being successful during and after high school. We hope that you will find it useful and in a format that is easy to read and apply.
There is a fee to take either test as well as registration deadlines:
- All information is available on the websites
- Scores to colleges are send directly from SAT or ACT
- You may request your scores be sent to a maximum of 4 colleges when you register
- (included in registration fee);
- There will be a charge for scores sent to any additional schools
