Before coming into Aurora, I have only been to one school before my whole life, which was a very small town and had very limited people. When I moved here it was summer before my senior year, and these people have been so open, and took me in. They are friendly, kind, the teachers and principal are amazing, and I've never felt more welcome.
I've lived in Aurora my whole life. I've always thought the learning opportunity at Aurora is awesome. They offer dual credit classes and online courses. Some student have graduated with an Associates's Degree.
