Coronado, named for the great Spanish adventurer and explorer Francisco Vásquez de Coronado, opened its doors in 1965 as the fourth high school in Lubbock, joining the list of Lubbock High, Monterey High and Dunbar High. Estacado was built several years after Coronado opened. The mascot of the school is the Mustang and the school colors are Scarlet and Old Gold. Like the other high schools in LISD, Coronado operates on a block schedule alternating between Red and Gold days. The school serves the southwestern part of Lubbock, Texas.
