Aurora Public Schools Opens Edna and John W. Mosley P-8 School to 900+ Students

Aurora Public Schools is excited to officially open the Edna and John W. Mosley P-8 school serving more than 900 students. Mosley P-8 is named in recognition of the important contributions made by the Mosleys to Aurora and the greater community.

John Mosley was a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, and Edna Mosley was the first African American to serve on the Aurora City Council.

The new school is located on the APS Community Campus near Airport Boulevard and 2nd Avenue. The school will serve more than 900 students from preschool through eighth grade. It will help alleviate overcrowding at seven elementary and P-8 schools in the area.

The grand opening will feature a ribbon cutting, building tours and free food from Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q and Sabor Mexican Grill.
