Corona del Sol High School located in Tempe, Arizona, United States, was established in 1977 and is a part of the Tempe Union High School District.


As of 2010, Corona del Sol is an open enrollment school. Corona enforces a closed-campus policy. Students attending through grades 9, 10 and 11 are not permitted to leave campus without an adult checking them out for the day. Seniors along with Juniors who exceed their AIMS testing the previous year are only permitted to leave campus with a special ID which can only be obtained with a signed and notarized parent permission form. The buildings of Corona Del Sol are layered with dark orange bricks as well as trimmed with a white paint.[citation needed] The school expanded in 1986[3] and in 2001.


2007 Columbine Anniversary Week[edit]

In April 2007, threats were issued for Corona over supposed violence to take place on the 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine shootings. The first message was found on a boys' bathroom stall on April 10; an olive tree was burned down and a message on the ground nearby found on April 13. Subsequent messages were found later on April 13 and on April 16 in bathroom stalls.[4][5] On April 19, 2007 the school was evacuated to the stadium due to a suspicious package found in a bathroom. The box turned out to be a student's physics science project in a shoebox.
