The Corona del Sol team is committed to providing each student with an exceptional, diverse and comprehensive high school experience. In 1986, Corona received the prestigious Presidential Award of Excellence in Education. In 2009, Corona was named the Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Arizona Blue Cup Award Winner. This accolade honors “the Pinnacle of Excellence in High School Activities, Scholastics and Athletics” and is the greatest award an Arizona high school can receive from the AIA.
Our students’ many individual honors include over 100 National Merit scholarship finalists, a Westinghouse Scholarship winner, several Coca-Cola Scholars and numerous other awards of excellence.
Beautiful, modern, and functional schools are our hallmark. Our comprehensive high schools, set on 50- to 75-acre campuses, include Corona del Sol High School, Desert Vista High School, Marcos de Niza High School, McClintock High School, Mountain Pointe High School and Tempe High School. Compadre High School is the District’s non-traditional high school. Peggy Payne Academy serves gifted students, and is located on the McClintock campus.
