Aurora Central High School Reviews

Aurora Central is able to recognize outstanding students and provide excellent opportunities and resources for them. Aurora Central has one of the best arts and music programs in the district. For those students who need more help, the school doesn't provide as much support as they need. Although there are after school tutors and programs to help students get back on track, there's one thing that holds the school back from reaching it's potential. That is the culture. Sadly Aurora Central has been known for having terrible students attend there with a lot of drama to fights every week. Overall for average and gifted students, Aurora Central will provide everything they need to succeed.

My experience in Aurora Central high school is that when ever i would struggle to get my grades up my teacher would sit next to me and help me step by step inorder to get high grades and pass my classes. In Aurora Central High School there are helpful teachers that help many students in thier studies and also for success aswell as our Counselors in Central High School they are very supportive and very helpful they give us students advise for our future, and also give us many reasources that help us find the right college. Aurora Central high school may not be known for high grades or high rate of graduates but we have a high spirt for anything and also ready to conquer anything that gets in our pathway to success.
Aurora central high school is school that most people don't like because they don't treat students equally. Sometime security will keep you on learning center because you go get food in your car! If they want to be better, they should do the right thing before make the wrong decision
