Meet the Principal - Denise Coronado

  • Denise Coronado

    Welcome to MCAT High School!  Our team is excited to work with you and your family to design a supportive learning experience at our school.  I hope you will find many caring adults, friendly smiles, and classrooms that stimulate curiosity and discussion whenever you visit our campus. 

    This is my 18th year with the Marana Unified School District, and my 5th year as Principal at MCAT.  In addition to being a proud educator in this amazing district,  I have also celebrated with my own children when they earned their high school diplomas from Marana schools.  For the majority of my career I have worked with high school aged students: first as a Special Education Teacher at Marana High School, and more recently at Mountain View High School as the Associate Principal before coming to MCAT. 

    I want you to know that I love my job- and I really enjoy getting to know all of the students who join our school community.  I learn from them constantly and am very proud to see them accomplish their personal goals.  I strive to be creative and compassionate when it comes to finding a way to help teenagers feel confident in school, and successful in life.
