    After having gone to many schools after Aurora I can safely say it is the absolute best! The teachers were incredibly helpful and knew exactly what to do to help me understand the material. The units done in school were always engaging and interesting. Aurora has a great atmosphere one that allows the students and parents to become close with all others involved with the school- like a large family. I spent some of the best years at Aurora and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants their children to have a challenging and thoroughly enjoyable experience. Fantastic teachers who can change your life!

    This school is declining rapidly. Staff turnover and low budget for kids mean a declining education. As a former parent I say Avoid.

    Cornwall Rates a perfect 10 has small class sizes and beats Aurora with two hands behind its back. Public schools in VT are like private schools anywhere else. Don't waste your money we are in a recession people.

    Aurora is a tremendous alternative to public options here in Addison County. The small class size and close teacher attention mean that the school meets each child where they are in the educational process. The schools commitment to experiential learning and unit study create a unique environment in which students of all ages and abilities can excel. Parents are an integral part of the equation as they add value through volunteer hours and academic contributions throughout each unit. In a place where property taxes are extraordinarily high I have no concerns about paying tuition for my children to receive an Aurora education.
