Aurora Reviews

All Categories
The school system is great, we are very lucky to have the schooling we have. The people all around town are very friendly and there are many small businesses that thrive all over town! Compared to the surrounding cities and what I know now, I would choose to live here if I got to do it all over again.
Review Aurora
Aurora as a whole has allowed me, as a student, to interact with a community that is growing daily. And by doing this, I have gained the opportunity to explore different cultures and meet all sorts of people from around the world. As a school, we are supported heavily by nearly everyone in the community and that allows our people to interact and grow as a whole. And ultimately, this has allowed me to grow into the person that I am today.
The area stays generally clean. Recreation department provides numerous sports, camps, and classes for the community. Schools are great. Provide kids with many opportunities.
