    Principal's Message

    Welcome to Coronado Beach Elementary School! 


    Coronado Beach Elementary School is located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.   This beautiful beachside school is home to nearly 300 students in kindergarten through 5th grade.  We are committed to academic excellence for all of our students. Our school mission is: "Coronado Beach Elementary School, from marine science to  agriscience, educating the next generation of critical thinkers and problem solvers."  Coronado Beach Elementary lives that mission each and every day as our families, staff, faculty and administrators work together to provide the best educational opportunities for our students. 

    All classrooms at Coronado Beach Elementary School are verified as Blended Learning classrooms. Blended learning can best be described as an environment in which a student learns at least in part through delivery of content and instruction via digital and online media with some element of student control over time, place, path or pace.  This approach allows for personalized learning as we differentiate to meet individual student needs. Every student will have their own technology device, as we are a 1:1 school for students and technology. Coronado Beach Elementary also has looping classrooms.  In looping classrooms teachers will work with their students for two years as they "loop" up to the next grade. Beyond the school day students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of after school activities. With parent permission, all students have the opportunity to interact with our farm animals in our new addition of a barn.  Students also participate in weekly STEM lessons. These lessons integrate science, technology, engineering and math as student problem solve different challenges.

    Our parents are an integral part of our school's success. We are very fortunate to have an active and supportive Parent Teacher Association and School Advisory Council. If you are interested in learning more about our PTA or SAC, I invite you to join our next meeting.  I would like to encourage you to be involved in your child's education as education is a partnership between home and school. 

    It is truly an honor to be principal at Coronado Beach Elementary School. I look forward to working with you and your child for a successful and rewarding experience.   If I can ever be of service, please don't hesitate to contact me.
