Corona del Mar High is located in Newport Beach, California, and belongs to the Newport Mesa Unified School District. It is a combination of a middle school (7th & 8th grades) and a high school (9th, 10th, 11th, & 12th grades). The school was established in 1962, and received a "silver" rating in 2009 by US News and World Report.
Corona del Mar has won ten Pacific Coast League titles and four CIF Southern Section Championships in 2006 under athletic director Jerry Jelnick. He was replaced in that position by former basketball coach Paul Orris in July 2006. In 2006, the girl's tennis team completed an undefeated season (28-0) and won the CIF championship. The girl's cross country team won both the CIF championship and the State championship many years in a row. Girls Track and Field also excels, going to CIF Finals and Masters year after year. In March 2007, the boy's basketball team won their fourth CIF Championship. In June 2007, Corona del Mar won the most CIF Southern Section titles with the acquisition of the boy's volleyball and track and field titles. Corona del Mar has also added boy's and girl's lacrosse to their sports program in 2007. In addition, CdM has both a girls and boys soccer team and a boys roller hockey team. In 2010 the Boy's soccer team won CIF Southern Section for the first time in school history. They also made it to the CIF State Championship.
Corona del Mar High School has been described as a school that "has seen troubles and controversy usually reserved for inner-city schools". Most recently (2009) the school has been accused of harboring a culture of homophobia and sexism documented, among other places, in a Facebook video as threats of both murder and rape by male athletes toward a female CdM student. 
The school came to national attention in 2009 after Principal Asrani banned the production of Rent by students reportedly due to its depictions of homosexual characters and relationships. The ACLU has filed a lawsuit alleging homophobic bullying and sexist harassment was tolerated at the school. The production was re-instated after Asrani said the only reason she had banned the performance was that she had not been given a copy of the script. The opening night was marked by a demonstration by the Westboro Baptist Church  which was met by around 300 or more students supporting their fellow students, the cast of RENT, and their school. The school's production of Rent went on to garner national acclaim with its award-winning run and sold-out audiences.
