Nearly 1,000 participants recently celebrated the grand opening of the new Aurora Hills Middle School.

The new school replaces a 1973 building constructed without windows, classroom walls or doors. The new school will benefit students and the entire community by providing a much improved learning environment for the Aurora Hills International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.

The project was funded with bond dollars approved by Aurora voters in 2008.
