Open Quote I like central high school its the best school. Close Quote


by a citizen
Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Open Quote I am a former student who graduated in 2004. Without Aurora Central I would not be on the path I am today, I would not be a student at the University of Colorado Denver, nor would I be getting my degree in English and secondary education. Central and the teachers inspired me to give back to the Urban school that gave me the tools and confidence I needed to succeed. We may not of had enough books but what I had was much more important - great teachers that cared about me and my classmates. As I get ready to graduate as a teacher I would find it a honor to work for the school that has so much to offer but gets looked past because of its history. And it is important to remember that what makes a good school are its teachers. I have memories and friends that I will cherish for a life time and I just hope I become the teacher that so many teachers there have inspired me to become. It offers to teach more than academics, it teaches students the tools they need to succeed. It gives hope to students who have never known what hope feels like. It gives us a chance to become the person we are meant to become, to succeed when people may not think it is possible. And it is important to note that I attended Arapahoe High my freshman year and though Arapahoe is a terrific school I would always choose Central in heart beat, because it gave me something that Arapahoe never could - a chance, hope, a dream, and pride to be apart of something so wonderful and unique. I am proud to say I am a Aurora Central Trojan! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
