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.

Overall, as a student for 4 years, the experience could have been a lot worse. Most of the teachers were not horrible, and maintaining good grades was not impossible. The administration mainly cares about upholding its reputation, and often pressures students into taking challenging courses only to bump up its ratings. They care little about the students, especially those who are lower achievers, and only "nurture" the kids who are average or above average. The student body is overall fairly motivated to succeed, so it works out for them (to an extent). Overall though, the access to resources is obviously fairly high in such a wealthy community, so it definitely could be a lot worse.
Well funded school system but the priorities seem all out of wack. I personally have had a disappointing experience with counselors especially this year when it came to college applications. The lack of communication and the lack of knowledge on the faculty's behalf was startling and disappointing. On top of that, the faculty is very discouraging of programs such as CCP (college credit plus) and Excel Tech was disheartening. I am personally enrolled in an excel tech program for the performing arts and have found it to be one of the best decisions of my life thus far and has prepared me more for college in the last two years then Auorora has in the last 4.
