Superintendent's Message

As we quickly approach the end of yet another school year, I would like to thank our faculty and staff for another extremely successful year.  We have once again been recognized by respected publications, including U.S. News & World Report, who ranked AHS at #3 in Northeast Ohio, #13 in Ohio and #370 in the nation in the Best High Schools article for 2018.  This puts AHS in the top 2% of high schools in the State and in the nation.  As one of 500 of the Best High Schools in the country for 2018 we have earned another Gold Medal and have attained the U.S. News & World Report Gold Medal designation for over the last 5 years. 

We recognized student academic achievement when AHS held their annual Academic Awards night on May 9th.  The list of accomplishments is long with many of our students earning outstanding recognitions and scholarships in academics, the arts, sports and clubs, as well.  The list is way too long to name all the individuals and that is a fantastic thing.  The Class of 2018 has accepted an impressive total of $8.6 million in scholarships!

And while I reflect on these accomplishments, I would also like to congratulate our graduating seniors in the Aurora High School Class of 2018.  You made it!  We wish you the best of luck and are confident that with the educational support/background you received here in the Aurora City Schools, you will go on to achieve great things!

I want to also take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe summer.  Enjoy all of the fun summer things and make memories with family and friends. Remember to check out our district website throughout the summer to keep up-to-date on summer reading information, reminders, and back to school events/information.  We look forward to welcoming everyone back in the fall and learning about the great summer experiences our students will have shared with their families and friends.
