APS Breaks Ground on New P-8 School with Focus on STEM Education

AURORA, CO – Aurora Public Schools (APS) will break ground this week on a new school with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. The school’s curriculum will engage students in creative hands-on projects that will prepare them for future STEM careers. The school will serve students in preschool through 8th grade and will officially open in August 2020.

APS is reaching out to the local community to help determine the name of the school, its mascot and the school’s colors. The new P-8 will offer a full range of sports for grades 6-8. Students in all grades will be able to participate in after-school clubs, activities and learning opportunities. Construction for the new school is funded by the voter-approved $300 million 2016 bond program.
