Panther Prowl

Corona High School - A Tradition of Excellence Since 1896

Greetings Panther Families

We just celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week (May 7th-11th), with National Teacher Appreciation Day falling on May 8th. I cannot adequately express my sincere appreciation for our teaching staff. Everyday they come willing and ready to support our students regardless of the circumstances. I often hear from some of our parents as well about how much individual teachers have made a difference in their respective child's life. Please join me in thanking our amazing teachers at Corona High School!

Here's your Panther Prowl for May 11, 2018; only three more editions remaining for 2017-18!

Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.,

AP Testing

There is one more week of AP testing remaining (see full schedule below). These tests are extremely important because they may result in granting students actual college credit, which ultimately saves students/parents money!!! Please ensure your student gets plenty of rest the night before testing. If you have any questions about AP, please contact our assistant principal, Mr. Danesh (, or your student's respective AP teacher. Good luck to all our Panthers.
