BETTER TEACHERS MAKE BETTER STUDENTS

Our innovative approaches to the classroom experience make learning fun and bring out the best in students.

MORE ACADEMIC CHOICES TO EXPLORE

As the only middle school to offer expanded exploratories, our students have more opportunity to discover their learning passions.

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ENRICH STUDENTS

With more than 30 languages represented at AHMS, our diverse, inclusive community makes all students and families welcome.

We Are Stronger Together

The pre-adolescent years are exciting years for young people as they prepare for high school and grow beyond the structure of the elementary school.  It can also be a trying time for students and parents because of the many new and exciting changes in their lives. We're here to help students on that journey academically, developmentally, and emotionally. Our solid support structure of trusted adults and social framework that encourages students to learn not only from their teachers, but from each other  contributes to our vibrant, positive, unstoppable community.

What Aurora Hills Parents Say

Aurora Hills is a Great School

There are so many positive things happening at Aurora Hills Middle School.   The building feels new and fresh and so does the attitude of the school Leadership. There is just a lot of positive energy. There are new ideas and approaches to building the school community. The kids are being offered many interesting options for classes. Things like STEM offerings, art classes and an AMAZING music program are available. There are afterschool activities available, Compass, sports, and homework help.  The size of the student population is also a plus, it is a big school but not so big that kids get “lost” in the numbers. I can see how committed the teachers and staff are to the kids. It’s a place where you can tell that each child and each family matters. I’m glad that this is our neighborhood school.
