Mrs. Mendoza, Principal


Meet Mrs. Mendoza



Welcome to Carlos W. Coon the Home of the Koalas. We are a large elementary school located in northwest San Antonio, Texas. We are one of 74 elementary schools in the Northside Independent School District.

Carlos Coon has dedicated and caring staff members who strive to meet the individual needs of each student. Our motto is “All Children Will Learn.” We believe that the combined efforts of the school and home can create optimal learning experiences for our students. We hope that every year will be an exciting year of learning as we work together to prepare our children to meet the ever increasing demands of a global society.

I have worked in the Northside Independent School District since 1967 as a teacher, a counselor, a coordinator for the district Career Education Program, a vice principal and principal. I have proudly served as an administrator at Carlos Coon Elementary for the past 24 years. 

Thank you for visiting our website. Please send me an e-mail at regarding any comments or questions you may have concerning our school.
