CHS Senior Standout: Adam Espe

Even though senior Adam Espe has never lived in Coronado, he has ample Coronado experience as a student. Adam’s older brother attended Coronado High School through the CoSA program. His parents wanted an equally positive experience for Adam, so in the sixth grade Adam’s parents enrolled him in Coronado Middle School.

Adam’s Coronado High School experience was challenging, but rewarding, “balancing academics, NJROTC, and social time. Being an inter-district transfer student…

In an effort to recognize the service and personal sacrifice military children make, April has been designated as the Month of the Military Child. In 1986, then Secretary of Defense Caspar W.

With Coronado’s close connection to the military, Village Elementary and Silver Strand Elementary schools…

An Educator's Perspective on Common Core

-Kevin Nicolls, Coronado Pathways Charter School Director

In my 25 years as an educator, I have weathered countless movements in education. Common Core isn’t the first attempted overhaul, nor do I anticipate it being the last.

Rather than countless inkblots and misplaced notes, technology has revolutionized how writers approach their craft. Search notes you took months ago. Research ideas instantly. Craft word choice through exploring related terms. While good old-fashioned pen and paper aren’t the new stone and chisel, there’s a whole new world available for writers. 

But what does that mean for your…
