Together We Reach New Heights
Times are changing and education must change with them. We are committed to continuing to apply the latest innovations to our curriculum. We are the first school in the APS system to adopt a flex schedule. This innovation allows us to offer students more electives than any school in the system, which means students are exposed to a greater breath of experiences. The flex schedule also allows us to commit more time to continuing education for our teachers without sacrificing time spent with students. This means Aurora Hills students have teachers with more training and credentials than any other middle school in the system.
Come and visit our beautiful campus and experience Aurora Hills for yourself.
