Aurora High School Reviews
Aurora high school I feel is one of the best high schools in Nebraska because they provided us with so many opportunities and options. If it wasn't academics, we had sport and clubs to choose from. The moment we started our journey throughout school they started preparing us for our future. Senior year is when it gets real you can choose what school of your dreams you wanted to visit. Every year they do have a college and career day for the juniors and seniors to see what colleges in Nebraska and surrounding states have to offer for programs. Career day is to expand your horizons on picking something you love. Senior year they always have senior day which is a day where they show us and talk to us on how to prepare for college and the real world. I wouldn't have known what I wanted to do with my life if it wasn't for Aurora high school that provided me with those opportunities.
The teachers at this school are unique. Many of them go above and beyond their standards, they truly care for their students, explaining in careful detail about the mistakes and misunderstandings the students make. Many will take the time to meet with the student one-on-one to figure out better ways to help them learn easier. Most of the teachers at this school use games to help students learn more effectively, they use creativity and fun to make it easier and less stressful on their students. All of the teachers are well educated on the subjects they teach, many go beyond their criteria and branch out to other topics. They are very engaged in students' life and get to know them on a deeper level. A lot of the grading is based on effort, and is consistent with each teacher. Overall, the teachers at this school are extraordinary.
So far this school has been a very lively experience for me. From freshman year, you are introduced and get to know your teachers on a better level, some of them are coaches as well. The activities and events are enthusiastic and spontaneous, everyone is invited but is expected to act respectful. This school has many expectations for their students, like going above and beyond in effort, being respectful, etc. They pride themselves on these expectations. You can really tell the administration cares for the students as they strive to help push each one to where they will be most successful. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over as I've matured so much since being here, I've accomplished so much, it's really helped shape me into the best person I can be.
