    "I think this is a great school! I was beyond excited when I got a call saying they had a spot open for my daughter if I was still interested. Yes! I'm not sure about one parents review being so low. My daughter was in Kindergarten this year, and she is learning things I don't remember learning in kindergarten. She is doing extremely well in reading and math. They even set goals in class which is great. Yes, you are required to volunteer in order for your child/children to go here. If you are a single parent household it's 20 hours per year and if you're in a two parent household its 40 hours per year. At first I was a little freaked out..I didn't know if I'd find the time. However, the school and staff make it super easy too do. I completed my 40 hours with "take home" projects (cutting out shapes, making books, ect) I helped in their garden, school picture day, cleaning classrooms on a Saturday, and a field trip. And I still plan to volunteer more before the school year is out. i love this school and so does my daughter."

    "Aurora Academy Charter School (K -8) provides my children with a positive learning environment. My graduating eighth grader will be in honors classes in an Aurora Public Schools high school next year. The staff are outstanding, the faculty really care about the success of all students, and the parents' involvement enriches the sense of community. I think that the education and preparation they are receiving at Aurora Academy will serve them well as they move on in their education and throughout their lives. I have been impressed with the high quality academic, athletic, and extra curricular opportunities at Aurora Academy. I have seen my children grow as students and as responsible, intelligent, and caring members of a community. "Expect more, achieve more!""

    "My son has attended this school two years. Parents are asked to volunteer but some parents become very involve to the point where they are teacher assistance and are they are the one's teaching and discipline the children. I disliked this because I am not sure if they are even qualified to take on this role but the school needs as much free help it can get. Also the students are not challenged enough, the teacher focuses on the children that need additional supports and ignores the other student. My son could count up to 1,000 when he started Kindergarten here but the assessment stated he could count up to 36. I figured the teacher or probably parent got tired of hearing him count and just wrote down 36. Also they focus on a Saxon learning that basically teaches kids to critically think which is fine but that's all they work on. The TCAPS scores began to decline after fourth grade because the students are never really learning the academic criteria they solely focus on critical thinking."
