I attended this school from the 6th to the 12th grade. From going there, I noticed that they were, and still are, on a low budget. There is only a handful of after school activities and sports that are offered because of the lack of a higher budget from the school district. Despite the financial obstacles the school faces, the education system has always been up to par for the most part. Students can actually learn in a more interesting way because there are more creative teachers who have a drive for student success. Anther thing is that they are very diverse. It is a school that enrolls a lot of refugees into their school roster. This is an amazing factor to help other students going to school with the refugees to learn more about other cultures in the world.

While all together the school was okay, I feel that the college prep part needs more attention. There wasn’t much when it came to developing study skills, and no encouragement of exploration of majors. Education could also be improved, I felt that teachers lacked the information and availability needed to have kids succeed. The environment was very friendly and safe though.
I've been attending Aurora West College Preparatory Academy for almost 5 years now. So, I can say that it is very diverse with students from different countries with unique cultures. However, I wish they would provide more Honors or AP classes to challenge students like me and prepare them for college.
