We are newer to the school and I have had little interaction with the parent community. The few parents I have had the pleasure of meeting and talking to have been lovely people who brought their children to APA for similar reasons and we instantly connected as a result. APA regularly hosts a breakfast and character in education assembly that we enjoy going to as it gives us the opportunity to meet other parents and get to know more of the community. There are many wonderful parents who volunteer regularly with the school, as well as parents who attend sports events, etc. I don't feel that APA is missing anything - the opportunities they provide for parental involvement & interaction are ample. Although much of the APA community is made up of higher-income families, there is little evidence of this amongst the students in terms of differentiating from one another. They all dress the same. They all follow the same rules. They're all encouraged to do their best.

The school does feel like a home for me. From the teachers, the students, to the administrators at all, I love the nice family we have here we all treat each other like brothers and sisters and treat this place like a second home. We stick up for each other and have their back, the people we meet here are life long friends we will carry out through high school. We hold events and celebrate each others positive behaviour which i love. The Aurora Prep family is one of the strongest families I know.

The families at APA are kind and involved. I have really enjoyed the people I have gotten to know through the school. There are a number of areas that parents can help out in. They are always welcomed into the school. The parents are generous with their time and skills. They volunteer in a number of areas, not just fundraising. I was able to come into a grade 8 class and teach them how to knit. They ask parents to come and speak to the kids about their interesting occupations. My son has been asked to come back and speak to the grade 8's about his experience in high school. The school offers a Date Night a couple of times a year. They allow you to drop the kids off (siblings included) on a Friday night. They have a number of fun activities for the kids and parents get to go and have a lovely, uninterrupted adult meal.
