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.
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.
