the power of small

the power to lead

the power of wonder

the power to make change

There are many ways to be a leader, and we at Aurora School believe students should practice them all.

Every day, we give students of different ages opportunities to work together side-by-side and learn from one another what it means to step up academically and socially. The world needs leaders who are as heart smart as they are head smart, and that’s precisely how Aurora graduates are described when they go on to the schools of their choice.
