I love the teachers and staff at Aurora High School. They will do anything to make sure you get the education you deserve, they are always there to help. This is the best aspect of this school. Yet there are some improvements I'd like to see. I would like to see more interesting classes being offered, such as foreign language. Not everybody wants to learn Spanish or French, some would love to learn Arabic, or perhaps Russian. The cafeteria food is not as healthy as it should be. Everyday, they serve pizza, french fries, popcorn, and cheese filled bread sticks. I would love to see healthier options being offered at school, such chicken breast, fruit salad, or even smoothies. I wish Aurora High School was more diverse, as we are a mainly Caucasian school, with the exception of a few African American students. I would love to see people from all over the world, I would love to see Saudi Arabians, Polish, and even Icelandic students.

Sure, academically I can see why this school is considered superior. But in several other aspects (like diversity and connection) this school is very poor. New students only fit in and excell when they are already acclaimated with the area. Students transferring from another district or state are often lost in all of the midst. The blinding light that shines from all of the academic achievement awards casts a long shadow over those who do not meet standards. But yeah, good job with being 200 something in the nation.
I am a first year student at Miami University in Oxford, OH. I graduated from Aurora High School in May, 2016 and looking back, I wouldn't trade my high school years for anything. Aurora High School offered me amazing opportunities throughout my time there. The staff is amazing and so helpful when you need anything. They definitely prepared me for college more than I expected. The whole atmosphere at Aurora High School is amazing because you can tell that everyone in authoritative positions just want the students to succeed and they will do anything they can to help. However, at times, I felt as though the restrictions that were put on us were a little strict and extreme considering the next year we were going to be heading off to college for complete freedom.
