Aurora High School

- Aurora City School District, OH
Senior: 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.
