Stay connected

For close to 30 years, Aurora has helped our students develop into inclusive, collaborative, authentic, thoughtful leaders. From founding varied organizations to making world-wide positive change through service; from becoming outstanding scholars, actors, dancers, writers, artists, musicians, and athletes to innovators Aurora alumni are leaders wherever they go.

Our students apply to and visit many different Middle Schools in the area

Choosing a middle school

This is a valuable process that engages our fifth graders in taking the lead to create their future. They have learned to be thoughtful and self-reflective about who they are as learners and what is important to them in choosing a school.

Positive role models and leaders

Aurora alumni have paved a broad path for the future generations of Aurora graduates. Our alumni are positive role models and leaders in their middle school and high school communities. Consequently, our current graduates are in demand.

This chart reflects a list of all the Middle Schools our graduates have attended in the last 5 years, the classes of 2012 – 2016.
