Like progressive education, our students are multifaceted. Their minds are sharp, and their hearts are open.
In them, our teachers foster academic strength and the ability to solve problems on the one hand, and communication and social justice on the other.
Aurora`s most unique trait is our multi-graded classrooms. Grouping two grades in each classroom (k/1, 2/3, 4/5, 6/7), gives older students the opportunity to mentor, and younger students the benefit of receiving guidance from their peers.
Whether students or teachers, parents or staff, our community practices kindness and inclusivity, and moves through the world with intention. We look forward to meeting you.
