Corona High School Panther Prowl

A Tradition of Excellence - Since 1896

Greetings Panther Families

The first half of the 2017-18 school year is officially over! As is the case every year, this semester was busy one with lots to celebrate. Our teachers, counselors, administration, and the rest of the staff work hard daily to make your student's high school experience a positive one.

As you take some time to spend with your friends and family over the break, I'm hoping your student comes back on January 16, 2018 refreshed and ready for one final push for academic success!!!

Happy holidays on behalf of your Corona High School staff. We'll see you next year!

Enjoy your final Panther Prowl for 2017. It's a short one this time :)

Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.,
