In pop culture
During the summer of 1984, Coral Park's gym was used as the Angel Beach High gym in Porky's Revenge, the third movie of the Porky's series.
From the late 1980s until 1998, the stretch of 16th street on which the school is located was renamed "Jose Canseco Street" after one of the school's most famous alumni. However, after Canseco gained notoriety due to several scandalous episodes, the street returned to its original name, "Ram Road," when students signed a petition. Part of the street is now named Ram Road/Jose Luis Rodriguez, after a local philanthropist who volunteered at Coral Park and whose son attended the school.
