    The East Aurora Union Free School District currently educates approximately 1850 students in three schools: Parkdale Elementary (K - 4), Middle School   (5 - 8) and the High School (9 - 12), servicing the Town of Aurora's population of approximately 14,000 residents.  

    It is a tremendous honor and great privilege to lead one of the finest school districts in Western New York.  Our schools provide dynamic and comprehensive educational programs for each and every student.  We deliver a varied, high-quality program while keeping expenditures at a reasonable level for our community.  Our students consistently rank within the region's top schools in measures of academic achievement and the community regularly demonstrates solid support for our responsibly proposed budgets.  Hence, the district is well-positioned to implement programs that ensure our students are college and career ready upon graduation.  

    The current  Capital Facilities Project is well underway and excellent progress has been made with the construction of the outdoor athletic facilities.  Phase 2 of the Facilities Project will be submitted to the State Education Department for review and we anticipate construction will begin in the spring of 2018. Phase 2 includes significant improvements to the Middle School music wing, classroom spaces and main office as well as renovations to the High School cafeteria, kitchen, music wing, gymnasium and locker rooms.
    Our quest for quality, in both our instructional/support programs and our facilities, coupled with the implementation of higher academic standards and the intent to provide a comprehensive education for every student, ensures our tradition of school excellence will endure well into the 21st century.
