Overall, the teachers at Aurora High School go out of their way to make sure every student gets the best education they can provide. The teachers not only teach you, but they are also there for you when you are in need. They are willing to meet with you outside of school to better grow your education. What needs to be changed about the school is the communication between the district. There is a lot of miscommunications concerning grading.

Depending on the extracurricular, it can be awesome! Like, Choir is the bomb. We have a great music extracurriculars. TO BE HONEST.
Other than a few teacher, the staff is pretty standard. Technology is present and utilized, but to be honest most teachers are rather sub par. Most of this can be attributed to the low standard of learning. It is almost as though they are pushing students towards flipping burgers. However, most of the honors teachers and multiple elective teachers are great. They really try to engage their class and it makes for an enjoyable experience.
