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

Aurora central high school is a very good school even, teachers, counselors and staffs take good care on the students. But sometimes there are some fights it's not because of the school. It's just the students' background/behavior. Every single person has their own behavior. The school opened the door for my future and give many opportunities to the students. But it just depends on the students. If the student try hard, then he/she will be successful. So, the school has given many opportunities, we, students just have to grab those opportunities and walk into the bright future.
So, my experience at Aurora Central has been fairly good, but the only thing that I truly disliked has been the recent change in principal during my senior year of high school. I have to say, he has had his good moments but mainly has made many mistakes in the way that he has led our school. He made it a horrible place to attend throughout the entire year, especially with his decisions to fire the entire staff in replacement for some staff members, who in my opinion, were totally incompetent. However, all the other principals were perfect in my opinion. So as long this current principal decides to become less incompetent or unless another one comes to take his place, then my review still stands.
