Aurora School Ratings & Reviews

June 26, 2017 Submitted by a parent
Our family has been part of the Aurora community since my oldest daughter entered Kindergarten 6 years ago (and our younger daughter is now there as a 2nd grader). We *love* this school!! The staff are universally amazing -- intentional, caring, philosophically aligned (i.e. strong believers in progressive education), passionate about education. The parent community is wonderful as well -- welcoming, full of support for all different kinds of families, loving towards their kids and each other. Classes are small, there is an amazing array of “specialist” classes (art, music, yoga, woodshop, Spanish, P.E., library, computers), and the mixed grade classroom structure is simply magic! (K/1 is combined, as are 2nd/3rd grade, and 4th/5th grade) The younger kids learn from and look up to the older kids, and the older kids get lots of opportunities to practice being kind teachers and leaders. Finally, Aurora has been teaching a strong socio-emotional curriculum since its inception in 1988 -- they are experts at this, and I am always impressed by how much more emotionally aware my kids are as a result of this (they teach actual “tools” to help kids deal with feelings and conflicts with friends -- something I wish more grownups would use!!). Aurora is not exactly geographically close to us, but it has been an incredibly wonderful experience for our family -- totally worth the commute!In terms of academic rigor, I think Aurora *is* academically rigorous, but in a way that makes more sense than requiring lots of rote memorization. Kids work hard on learning material, but the scope and approach is a little different than traditional schools, which emphasize memorizing lots of disparate facts. One of Aurora's philosophies is to delve deeply into a smaller area (as opposed to learning a shallow amount of a larger area). In this day and age of being able to learn shallow amounts of anything with a quick Google search, I appreciate this more meaningful skill of being able to learn to research something more deeply.

I have to disagree with the parent who posted about Aurora students not being prepared for middle school. That was not our experience at all. Our son, who is very academic, thrived at Aurora and is having a great experience in middle school (he is in 7th grade now at an independent school known for its science, math and arts curriculum). He was more than prepared for middle school academics and flew through his sixth grade year with all A's. The curriculum in the multiage 4th/5th grade classroom at Aurora was amazing in both its breadth and depth, but especially its depth. For example, whereas children I knew in other schools learned only the most cursory facts about the Gold Rush, our son was reading a variety of primary sources to understand the experiences of Chinese immigrants, Native Americans, women, and gold miners from the period. This was all within the context of deep learning about California history, geography, and geology. Students engage in critical thinking and inquiry and are encouraged to grapple with complex ideas and a variety of perspectives. I could go on and on about how engaging, relevant, and vibrant the learning environment is.In addition to his academic preparation, I felt that my son was prepared to be an active participant in a learning community. The leadership skills he gained through a variety of opportunities (partnering with younger children at the school, student council, etc.), the emotional intelligence, and simply the sense of agency that children at Aurora develop were so important in his move to the new school. He hit the ground running and hasn't stopped. I encouraged anyone looking for a school that is steeped in progressive education and that helps children become both head smart and heart smart to take a look at Aurora School.

The school does well on social-emotional curriculum. But they struggle with academics. Over the years, various kids have complained that Aurora didn't prepare them sufficiently for middle school. Many reported needing at least 3 to 6 months to adjust. Kids in public were much better prepared. Parents have given this feedback to the administrators, who are generally exemplary individuals. But they didn't really accept the feedback as evidenced by the continued 'soft' academic environment. The school is extremely welcoming of LGBTQ students, students with disabilities etc. If you want an accepting environment, come here. If you want academics, go elsewhere.

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!
