Diana’s Journey from Student to Education Advocate in Aurora Public Schools
Diana is an Aurora Public Schools (APS) graduate and now has two children of her own. Her daughter currently attends APS and her son will begin soon.
Like ALL families, she wants the best education possible for her children. However, on average only about 65% of students in Aurora Public Schools graduate from high school. When families have the tools and skills they need to support their children’s education at home, these graduation rates can and will improve.
