"A highly anticipated science, technology, engineering and math-centered charter school in north Aurora is no longer just a dream.
Aurora boosters braved a maze of excavators, half-built concrete walls and mountains of earth Thursday to break ground for Aurora Science and Tech. When construction wraps up on the Fitzsimons Innovation Campus, it will be the first school in Aurora run by charter school network Denver School of Science and Technology.
The school is already educating 168 sixth grade students that are co-located with another charter school, Rocky Mountain Prep, until next year. A grade will be added each year until AST has full middle and high schools on the campus."
