In all honesty, I believe Aurora Public Schools is a great place to allow your kids to attend and get their education! I do however don't think they always have the best staff, certain teachers pick favorites and I don't think that's fair to the others. I'm also very glad they offer great assistance the the kids who don't exactly pick up on certain subjects as quick as the other, but sometimes I believe they are treated to much as a kid in kindergarten rather than a future college student or person of the work force.

I absolutely love my school! I have a great relationship with many of my teachers from all grades and classes. The activities are diverse and provide many opportunities. There is always something to try and there's an abundance of support in all you do.
Aurora High school is an amazing school! All staff members are willing to help with anything they can help with. If they aren't able to help then they will find someone to help you! There are always smiles on everyone's faces and everyone's spirits are high.
