Aurora West Unified School District No. 129 Reviews

I feel like the school is quite redundant. They always hype up the same things, and nobody gets any more interested. The students themselves aren't anything special. All the AP kids are really pretentious and the 'normal' kids are not focused on to build their academic skills. The teacher I have had are really nice and will pay attention if you are willing to work. Most the math teachers seem the most uncaring out of them all. Guidance counselors and administration does not listen carefully to student complaints and needs. Overall though, its just like any other school. I'm pretty sure socially the school is identical to other schools in surrounding districts.

West Aurora truly shines in its diversity. I think growing up, especially in middle school, with so much diversity is a great experience. It helps understand other backgrounds at a younger age. The only thing I dislike about West Aurora is that the academics are lacking.
West Aurora provided an opportunity to fit in. From all the different clubs and sports offered, there was always somewhere where you would fit in. As a transfer student, West Aurora provided me with many different ways to get involved and make my new beginning a great one. My high school experience was great because of the diversity in not just the activities provided but also the people and the atmosphere.
