Aurora School: The Power of Small


Aurora School is an award-winning, independent, K-5 school nestled in the quiet residential neighborhood of Upper Rockridge in Oakland. Since 1988, our inclusive community has welcomed families of all backgrounds.

Our students learn in multi-graded classrooms (K/1, 2/3, 4/5) by design. This mentor exchange fosters collaboration, communication, empathy, critical thinking, creative expression, and leadership skills.

Our small class sizes allow our students the opportunity to get to know themselves and each other as learners, contributing community members, and empowered and authentic human beings.

Aurora also offers one of the largest independent school libraries in the East Bay and specialty coursework in STEM, art, music, woodshop, Spanish, yoga and physical education.
