Corona High School - A Tradition of Excellence Since 1896
Greetings Panther Families
During the actual school day, we will hold a similar event for our four main feeder schools from 8:30 am -11:30 am. This portion is for students only.
Please note that because we have two 3-day weekends coming up (that's right, no school on February 12th or 19th), there will be no Saturday school the next two Saturdays.
Now enjoy your Panther Prowl for February 9, 2018.
Antonio Gonzalez, Ed.D.,
On February 3rd, the Riverside County Academic Decathlon was held here at Corona High School. The competition features teams of up to 9 students competing in 10 academic categories and 1 large exciting Super Quiz that allows teams to add to their final score. Twenty-one teams represented 18 high schools competing over two weekends. There's a new topic every year; some from recent years included WWII, Russia, and India. This year's topic was Africa. Our Panthers competed extremely well and represented our school extremely well, winning 2nd place in the Super Quiz and 3rd place overall. In addition, we won 11 individual medals.
Olivia Walker won four medals: gold in both science and literature, silver in speech and bronze in social science. Garrett Wilson won two silvers in math and speech. Juan Santiago also won two medals, both bronzes in science and social science. Nicholas Taylor, Hailey Stankiewicz, and Jordan Suarez also took home medals: Hailey and Jordan both earned gold for their interviews, while Nick won silver for economics. It was our best performance yet! We are all so proud of our decathletes for their dedication and hard work in this highly competitive event...and thank you to Mrs. Lynette Menter-Hartman for her leadership and coaching! Way to go, Panthers!
