Aurora High School Reviews

Overall, my experience at Aurora was enjoyable. The teachers genuinely care about their student’s performance. For them, the student’s success is their success. Whenever, I struggled in a subject, I always had the opportunity to go in for extra help. The student can make private one-on-one sessions with a teacher during a free period, or he or she can stay after school and work in a group for an upcoming test. Aurora is a challenging school with many AP classes so the students are very fortunate to have this assistance. I felt like my overall education was valued. As for extracurricular activities, Aurora has plenty to choose from. From various sports, to theatre, to band, one is sure to find his or her niche. The importance of the student’s wellbeing carries from the classroom to these activities. The advisors/coaches truly want everyone to enjoy themselves. I am grateful to be graduating from Aurora. It has lots to offer that will help the students succeed in their future.

The Aurora School District has a lot to be proud of. With having triplets in their senior year we have been able to step back and pondered on what the last eleven years in this community has represented and how they have achieved such success for their students.
From accelerated academic classes to challenge their minds to sport clubs that build teamwork and competitive spirits. Also, their ability to create social clubs that allow the kids to give back to their community and accept diversity in everyday life. They create an environment of safety and respect. The message being that everybody is different but that is what makes us a community. Our children are prepared to face the world with the knowledge and confidence that is needed to be successful. We are thankful to call this city our home and our children will be better adults because of it.
It's a very typical small town. People who've known each other since pretty much birth have a hard time letting new people into their cliques. I moved before my freshman year, and it wasn't until the end of my sophomore year that I fell in with my permanent friend group. But overall, the academics are great and most of the teachers genuinely care about you and how you do in their classes. It's also nice to see the whole town come out to support sports events, especially football.
