Aurora East Unified School District 131


The Aurora East Unified School District 131 in Illinois serves 18 schools, including 13 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, and 1 high school. The district faces significant challenges, with an overall ranking of 784 out of 823 Illinois school districts and a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating performance well below the state average.

However, the data reveals pockets of excellence within the district. Fred Rodgers Magnet Academy, a middle school, stands out with significantly higher academic performance compared to the district and state averages. Similarly, C.I. Johnson Elementary also demonstrates strong academic achievement, ranking 861 out of 2,077 Illinois elementary schools and receiving a 3-star rating. These high-performing schools suggest that with the right interventions and support, other schools in the district could potentially improve their outcomes.

The data also highlights concerning trends across the district, such as high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 5.5% at C.I. Johnson Elementary to 37.7% at East High School. Academic performance is also a significant concern, with proficiency rates well below state averages, particularly in 11th grade math and English Language Arts. The high rates of free and reduced-price lunch recipients, ranging from 55.6% to 77.94%, suggest that the district serves a predominantly economically disadvantaged population, which likely contributes to the academic challenges faced by many schools.
