I absolutely loved growing up in the Aurora City Schools District. I had so much freedom when I started high school because I could pick what classes I was interested in based on my skill set, what electives I wanted to learn more about, what sports I wanted to play, and what clubs I wanted to join! My sophomore year of high school I joined a program called College Credit Plus where I got to go to college half a day and my high school the other half. I loved this opportunity because I have most of my college credits and electives already out of the way for when I begin college this fall! I would 10/10 recommend going to Aurora!

The educational system is good- with extended outreach to its students: virtual learning, the opportunity to retake tests/hand in late work for a few points, the option for free/reduced prices on books, as well as private after school study sessions, sometimes with tutors. The education is undoubtedly excellent and many of our alumni go on to excel in their fields. However, I found myself slowly turned off more and more to the school by a few things. Some of its staff members act with hostility and bitter attitudes, making it painfully clear they don't want to be here at all. The majority of its (pretty much white) student body is hateful and unaccepting- LGBT club posters were torn down not even one day after being put up, and the school did nothing about it. Its disiplinary actions do not go far enough. After telling a girl I saw someone steal her airpods, she got them back but the school didn't enact any consequences on the guy who snagged them. It is disappointing.
I attended Aurora City Schools for my entire K-12 education. Personally, I had a wonderful experience with this district. All of my teachers and most of my peers were passionate about our education and the environment truly fostered a great learning experience. One element I believe Aurora is lacking is diversity. This school needs to make more of an effort to hire teachers of different backgrounds to create a fully inclusive and welcoming environment.
