    "We love Aurora School! The teachers and staff are amazing, very knowledgeable and professional, and maintain a nurturing and welcoming environment for the students. Teachers give their full attention to each student, focusing on individual skill level and learning style. Our son is very happy to be attending school at Aurora. He is learning a lot in science, math, reading, writing, art, music, Spanish and even woodshop. He comes home every day enthusiastic to share what amazing things he's done in class. There is also a nice camaraderie that happens among all the students even between different grade levels--the older kids make sure to look out for the younger kids. Parents are also very active in the school, adding a wonderful feeling of community here. If you're looking for a top-notch school that is very positive and welcoming, also serious about your kid's academic development, I fully recommend Aurora School!"

    "Every week something that happens that makes us so happy to be at Aurora. Our daughter attended local public school for kindergarten and had a very difficult year. We searched carefully to find a better fit for first grade and have never regretted switching to this warm, nurturing, creative, joyous, amazing, culturally competent school. Our daughter loves school so much she can't wait to go back after school breaks! She has the best teacher we've ever encountered. The administration is competent, responsive, ethical, and committed. The teachers obviously enjoy working at Aurora and love their jobs; they are dedicated and go above and beyond to provide extra services and support outside regular hours without complaint and with deep creativity and emotional sensitivity. Every week we get a detailed summary of what has happened in the classroom; it never fails to make us smile and wish we had been lucky enough to attend a school like this. There is no bureaucracy to navigate to communicate with teachers or administrators any time we've wanted or needed to. The parent community is very nurturing and supportive. We encourage you to come experience Aurora yourself!"

    "Our daughter is in 2nd grade at Aurora School. She and her schoolmates appear to be well-rounded, caring, and curious learners, thanks to the dedicated and thoughtful teachers and staff. If you are interested in a challenging, yet progressive, education for your child, Aurora should be on your list. The litany of positives is long: blended classrooms (a terrific attribute), creative teachers, truly individual attention, world-class children's library (no joke, you have to see it to believe it), small-school environment, involved parents (who, for many, really do become great friends), varied learning environments (woodshop for K/1s-seriously!), and a thoughtful curriculum. So many have said they knew their family belonged at Aurora the minute they walked into the school. Once you visit, you will see why."

    "My daughter is entering 4th grade in the Fall at Aurora and has been there since kindergarten. She has thrived at Aurora, and although the regular social, emotional and academic challenges of early childhood inevitably come up, I have been impressed again and again at the staff's ability to respond with sensitivity and thoughtfulness. If there is one thing that Aurora does beautifully it is to get to know each child as an individual. I really suggest that you look at Aurora if you are looking for a school where your child will not only learn academics, but will become part of a wonderful community of lifelong learners."

    "Aurora is an amazing school, with very strong teaching staff and a wonderfully supportive parent community. We have a daughter still there and one that has graduated to middle school, we could not be more impressed with the academically strong and socially compassionate kids they have become, and we attribute a big part of that to their time at Aurora. The school's tag line - The Best of Both Worlds: Academic Rigor in a Progressive Setting - holds true. The school does an impressive job of blending academic achievement with a strong social and emotional curriculum. And the teachers are an impressive array of competent and caring individuals. Looking back at almost ten years at Aurora I can not imagine that there would have been a better academic experience for my two kids."
