‘A decade of work’
By Shelby Perea, Albuquerque Journal
Hanging on the media building at Coronado Elementary School is a prominent navy and gold emblem – clearly marking a distinction of some kind.
It hangs proudly above the sports court as kids play, catching a passerby’s eyes and representing a decade’s worth of work.
That emblem is the Magnet Schools of America national certification seal.
As principal Nathaniel Kuster notes, it’s a source of pride for the Coronado Caballeros, especially because Coronado was the first school in the state to get the certification, according to Albuquerque Public Schools.
